Basil is a pretty solid pizza place in Crown Heights that happens to be kosher. It’s a nice space with hardwood floors and a pizza oven behind a long marble bar, and it’s good for a casual date or a weeknight meal with a friend. They make crispy, thin-crust pizzas (all of which are vegetarian) topped with plenty of chewy mozzarella, and there are also a bunch of pastas and small plates. But just stick to the pizzas. They’re the best things here, and they’re why you come to Basil.
