Old Greg's

The sourdough pizza spot Old Greg’s has graduated from pop-up to brick and mortar. And even though ordering from Greg’s was sort of impossible during their pop-up days, we've had no trouble getting a table here so far. They’re operating out of the former Ghee space in the Design District, selling square pies and (a new addition to the menu) really nice round pies with big sprigs of basil. And while we do enjoy the pizza, the best thing on the menu is actually the hoagies, a selection of generously-stuffed subs that include a ridiculously good chicken caesar sandwich and what just might be the best Italian sub in town.

The first-come-first-served counter-service spot also has wine, beer, some salads, and a very cool alligator mural (plus an equally great bathroom). It's casual in here—no need for a reservation or fancy clothes. Still, it's a great spot to split a bottle of wine and eat way too much pizza with a few friends.

Chicken Caesar Hoagie

Greg’s hoagies are the sleeper hit of the menu. The chicken parm might catch your eye first, but go for the chicken caesar. It is a chicken caesar salad that saw a shooting star and wished to become a sandwich. Thin, tender chicken cutlets are stuffed between a perfectly crunchy house-baked hoagie roll. But what really makes this sandwich is the outstanding caesar dressing that acts as a condiment. Ask nicely for extra on the side.

Italian Hoagie

What a perfect Italian hoagie this is. They bake the bread themselves, and it's the perfect combination of soft and sturdy. And the ratios of sweet soppressata, hot coppa, mortadella, provolone, onion, shredded lettuce, and pickled banana peppers are just perfect. We've used the word "perfect" in every sentence of this paragraph, which should tell you how we feel about this hoagie.

Veggie Supreme

We love a pepperoni cup as much as the next person, but the best pizza at Old Greg’s has zero meat. The veggie supreme is almost like if you took an excellent chopped salad and dumped it on a pizza. It’s topped with red onions, green bell peppers, olives, pickled banana peppers, and maitake and oyster mushrooms, which stand in wonderfully for protein. We like this best on the square pie because all those toppings need a thick, stable crust.
