Based on recommendations from friends like UltraClay, I decided to finally try Waldy’s for their wood fired pizza. They’re right on. It’s some good high end pizza, counter service style. Sam and I split a small braised lamb and a mushroom pizza at $9 each. Quality toppings and nice char on the bottom.
I haven’t had a pizza shaped like that before. Closest thing was the pizza I ate in New Haven that my band almost broke up over. We drove up there to play with Ted Leo & the Pharmacists at Bar Night Club, where they offered us two squarish-circle shaped pies. I was interested in getting one with all the weird stuff like mashed potatoes, little neck clams and a maybe four/five more toppings. Somehow that became a big deal and we almost broke up over mashed potato pizza. Instead we got really drunk and played really loud and bad.
