40 North is yet another food truck-turned-brick and mortar story. Since originally opening in 2014, they’ve made some of the best Neapolitan-style pizza in town, but now, in their new space, the pizzas come out a little faster and you can eat without the fear of a stray cat or pigeon attack. The restaurant is hidden a bit downtown, so it’s not as crowded as you’d expect. And if somehow you’re not in the mood for pizza, or you just want more on your table, order the fried chicken sandwich or the labneh with flatbread.
