So I finally tried Queen Margherita Pizza

Annette location.
A Margherita, $14

First, something good.
Very pretty waitresses

Now not the so cutie pie.
A thinnish, soft, spongy, flaccid crust. Tasted like charred, yeasty, otherwise undercooked Wonderbread.
I asked if the crust is usually this way and was assured that this is how they make it here. I asked if others complain and was told that some do.
I sent back most of the pie. I got another in replacement, much more cooked indeed, heavily charred.
I was told that it was best eaten while still hot. Sure, then you can't taste anything.
The crust on the new pie tasted only of char, except for the thicker roll forming the edge. This was still spongy and yeasty.
An afterglow of queasiness and regret.

Good for a yuppy seven year old.
Designed as a money factory, both the room and the menu.
Real balls to think that on what they serve they need over 100 seats.
But you know, they are in the business, not me.

Picea997, Dupont and Dovercourt, is miles better. In a different league.
