Pizza has been a sacred meal since the dawn of Chuck E. Cheese. Serious Pie is where to go to experience the same joy, but with ambience and food fit for grown-ass people. It has an open kitchen and big communal tables, and is dark enough that it has a vibe, but bright enough that you can see your pizza, which is important.
Use Serious Pie as a date spot where you still can appreciate the buzz of a crowd (just note: if you have tickets at the Moore for afterwards, leave yourself some extra time in case there’s a wait). It also works just as well for a post-workweek gathering of your crew - or if you have a giant group, you can reserve the semi-private “kitchen table” for up to 22. When it comes time to order, skip the starters, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Split one of each pizzas on the menu, but you might want to keep the fennel sausage/bell pepper/provolone pie to yourself.
