Roast Social Kitchen
The latest venture by Nick and Jen Pencis, of Stanley’s barbecue fame, promises to be every bit as good as its older sibling. Just as the key to good barbecue is the pit, the secret of excellent pizza (along with the skill of the chef) is the pizza oven, which the Pencises imported from Italy. We found the caramelized onion dip (supplied with both veggies and thin pita crackers) delightful, and the Meat Haters Pizza was exquisite, with caramelized onions, roasted cremini mushrooms, red peppers, rosemary gremolata, and spinach with mozzarella and manchego. Equally as impressive are the creative craft cocktails. Request a seat in the restaurant if your intent is to converse, as the bar music is rather loud.
