Nicky’s Coal Fired is our nomination for the best SCRPRTCUWFF in The Nations. What’s a SCRPRTCUWFF, you might ask? It’s a Super Cute Reasonably Priced Restaurant To Catch Up With A Few Friends, and Nicky’s checks every box. The pizzas and pastas are consistently excellent and hover around the $20-25 mark, the space isn’t too big—but is always lively enough—and the food is never boring. 

Get a plate of cavatelli bolognese, a Hey Paisano pizza with capicola and spicy honey, and an order of meatballs for good measure. Their bagel shop also makes this place really feel like a neighborhood icon, with woodfired bagels and a calabrian chile cream cheese that’s up there with GPS when it comes to great inventions of the 21st century.
