This terrific slice spot is counter-service-only, but happens to specialize in crunchy-edged square pies you’ll want to share with friends over a few drinks. Happily, there’s a workaround. Their sister spot Lucille’s, a plant-filled coffee and cocktail bar with a solid all-day menu, is located just two doors down. And they really don’t mind if you bring your pizza over. Order the broccoli rabe and sweet sausage or the pepperoni cup-packed grandma square pie to-go, then head down the block for martinis, rum punch, and craft beers. And if for some reason you aren’t in the mood for pizza, the kale caesar salad and baby back ribs on Lucille’s dinner menu are both good choices.
