I heard about this place from a friend who says that the owners are former Colony Grill employees, and the pizza is VERY similar, but unlike Colony, they take credit cards, have a larger menu, deliver, are cheaper, and overall is a better experience than the at-best quirky, oftentimes off-putting experience of Colony.

Obviously the pizza is of paramount importance; which is what keeps people coming back to Colony despite their idiosyncrasies.

Have any Chowhounders been there and have a report?

I'm going to try to make it there soon myself. I enjoy Colony but the hassle of getting it often turns me off.
