Grandpa Slice To Go @ Accarrino's x SPQR | Fillmore - San Francisco

Melanie Wong | Aug 8, 202011:27 PM    

Six years ago, I'd celebrated my birthday with dinner at SPQR. https://www.chowhound.com/post/places... In the time of Covid-19, it has pivoted to offer take-away and outdoor dining at lunch and dinner. Like other Michelin stars, the menu has shifted from haute cuisine to simpler food at price points accessible for neighborhood families. At SPQR, the more relaxed and homier offering has been dubbed Accarrino's, after its Executive Chef Matthew Accarrino. Reservations for a table or pick-up can be made by phone (preferred) or via Tock. https://www.exploretock.com/spqr/

Last week I dropped by at lunch time to grab a slice of Alyssa's "Grandpa" pizza, $5, made by one of SPQR's long-time sous chefs. Deep dish style and cut in rectangles, the slice has a light brushing of non-sugary tomato sauce topped with mozzarella, sausage, broccoli and caramelized garlic. Before sealing the package, Chef Accarrino himself added a final dusting of grana and fresh basil leaves. Barely warm for that first bite in the car, I wrapped it back up in the heavy foil to take home to heat more thoroughly. My meal time for the pie stretched to the next morning when the hot slice made terrific breakfast. Reheated till the cheese melted, the thick crust was bouncier and more tender with yeasty overtones. That sausage is pretty wonderful.

This Grandpa pizza slice might be the bargain among meals touched by a Michelin-starred chef. I'm told it usually sells out by 5pm, so go early. For take-out, a table is positioned at the open doorway for transactions. I paid $6.70 in exact change, as there's no credit card terminal at the front for contactless payment.
