This pizza has some crispness and a little char on the bottom from the oven, but the slices are still flexible with some chewiness. The menu is small: a few signature pizzas such as a Margherita, a Hot Honey, and one with kale, plus weekly specials.

This may be a bar providing Alamo Drafthouse moviegoers with a new foraging alternative, but Chef John Bullington's snacky menu includes interpretations of classic Mexican street food, such as N.Y. Strip alambras and a giant Sonoran hot dog. Brunch is exciting as well, what with tangy avocado tomatilla sauces, and poblanos in the chichimigas.

The dishes are authentically flavored, wonderfully spicy, and cooked with fresh ingredients. The Ma Po Doufu is a lusty temple to the gods of chile and mala: superb and perfect on a nippy day, delightfully sweat-inducing on a hot day. Read our review.
