This waterfront institution is renowned for its grilled pizza—which makes sense since the owners arguably invented it back in the ‘80s. It also happens to be one of Ina Garten’s favorite restaurants, and everyone knows Ina has fabulous taste. While any pizza on the menu is a good choice, we like the mortadella-topped version that’s crispy, slightly charred, and comes draped with the creamy pink cold cuts. Order a side of fried buffalo mozzarella with salami, a bold glass of red, and try not to get any sauce on the white tablecloths.
