Adventure #44: Arpeggio Grill

I must admit that I've been terribly neglectful in getting this post up.  You know how it goes, you get really excited about a thing and a year later life seems to take some of the shiny away.  Don't get me wrong though, places like Arpeggio Grill are what makes this whole thing worthwhile.  Before now, you'd probably think the same thing we did, "Mediterranean place that serves pizza?  Ehh, it's probably bad.  They're trying to please too many people." You'd be mostly wrong.

There have been times when the sum of the parts was greater than the whole; when good ingredients just didn't add up to a good pizza.  This is not that pizza.  Even though the vegetables were just ok, the sauce was ok, and the crust was ok, the pizza was satisfying and there weren't any complaints around the table.

We got the "Greek Pizza" which has feta cheese, tomato, onion, gyro meat, green pepper, mushrooms, green olives, black olives, and extra cheese.  The standout ingredient was the gyro meat which was delicious and just a touch crispy.

In the end, this is going to go down as a forgettable pizza, but if your car dies right in front of Arpeggios (because otherwise, you'd clearly be hobbling to House, Eastside Pies, or Little Deli, all of which are in the vacinity) or you want some pizza and your companions want hummus, go right on in!


PS.  The staff is super-friendly!
