adrienne's pizza bar and more stone street fun

i know there are a few postings on this relatively new place - but they go back to mid june so i'll add this little reminder....it's pretty good. it's not italy but the crust on the square pie is thin, redolent of parmesan, and crisp....the tomato sauce falls to the sweet side but is lush and tasty, the assorted meats are beautifully sliced and seemed to please my crowd, great stuffed sicilian olives and you get to have all this at tables outside on quaint little throbbing stone street. of course the indoor space is great, very white and wood and clean and ultra stylish. but being outside on stone street - the street most likely to be voted as almost like being in a tiny european hamlet is rather captivating. at least that's what i used to think when i would dine quietly outside with friends at cassis (the lovely bistro next door) in the past two years. this past thursday night however, apparently the night the manager said was the busiest - the street was exploding with tables at what seemed to be a half dozen restaurants, loud, loud voices, and multi sources of music. still actually like many a european hamlet come to think of it. but if you find yourself there on a night earlier in the week, or at a later hour - say after 9pm when it began to die down a little bit....(we got there at 8pm), then you have yourself a great evening, with really good pizza, wonderful and concerned service, plus nice wine list (we had the falanghina san gregorio 2003 but since there were 8 of us, i think we depleted their entire supply. delicious for a summer evening though). it's a nice place to remember when dining with a large group or looking for a small journey to parts generally less known. or even if you just want some tasty pizza - they offer round on the menu but apparently square is what they do best. ask for it and they will customize it any which way you'd like. hard to beat.
