As you know, if you’ve been following along on the Salads and Spirits Summer 2010 Train; I’ve been hitting up restaurants and bars in Boston for WWCs (Work Week Cocktails) in an effort to go to bars A to Z in one summer.
Well, it’s the week of Labor Day; so this challenge is rapidly coming to an end. Part of this adventure was not only to try new restaurants (drink during the work week), relax with friends (avoid cleaning my apartment) but also to meet new people (talk to cute boys). So although the last few months have been a BLAST; not too many people (cute boys) have been met.
After tallying up some letters at the end of last week to see what was left of this challenge; I laughed out loud to see that after 3 months, 23 bars and endless glasses of champagne; I still needed letters G, U, Y (GUY) to complete this challenge. Of course, I’m trying to find a GUY at the end of this. Irony, its whats for dinner.
Oh well, the (delicious and cocktail filled) search continues! Letter “U” was easily fulfilled last night by Upper Crust Pizza! The weather has taken a turn for the cool here in Boston, so when my friend Beany proposed pizza and a glass of wine at Upper Crust after work; I was all in!
Upper Crust is a local pizza chain specializing in fun and gourmet toppings. What I like most about them is that they’ll put any pizza on whole wheat dough – score! Or make any pizza “white” (no red sauce) – double score!
I walked to the location in my neighborhood to meet Bean. The restaurant itself is pretty casual inside; you serve yourself water, plates and silverware; buts its cozy still.
What’s also nice about Upper Crust is that although its super casual, they do serve beer and wine.
Mmmm I love White Pizza; I’m way more into cheese than I am into sauce.
The dishes are done, man. We did some damage on this pie for sure. Although I loved the flavor combination, something was “missing” for me on this pizza. Not sure if it was the flavorings or crust consistency, but I doctored up my slices with hot sauce and Parmesan; and there was still that missing something, weird, I know. I typically feel this way about Upper Crust; I really want to LOVE them; but I really only LIKE them.
