Instead of making some of the best pasta in the city like its older sibling Flour + Water, Flour + Water Pizzeria makes white and red pizzas topped with things like braised cabbage and speck ham or eggplant and smoked mozzarella. It’s a much more casual spot that’s easy to drop into in the middle of the week, instead of having to make plans for a month in advance. If you don’t feel like eating at the actual restaurant though, the entire menu is available for takeout and delivery, so you can eat your pizza in the comfort of your own Netflix-binging rabbit hole. If you’re set on taking out, they also have a “Big Slice,” a constantly-changing daily slice that’s only available from a special takeout window, along with a few other things like their soft serve, which is worth coming here for on its own.

Don't come with your torches and pitchforks, but, dare we say...Delfina is not that exciting?
We can always rely on Cotogna in the Financial District for an excellent upscale Italian meal.

The Mill in Nopa is the place you keep hearing about with the fancy toast, and it’s worth paying for, especially to hang out here a little longer.
Del Popolo’s pizza is just as good at their brick and mortar Nob Hill spot as it is from their roving truck.
