the backspace

This authentic Neapolitan-style pizzeria from restaurateur/chef Shawn Cirkiel is cozy and intimate. Literally housed in the backspace of Cirkiel's parkside, backspace offers pizzas cooked to perfection in a custom oak-fired oven. The menu advises being considerate of other guests waiting for seating, but with that wine list and those pies, I'd prefer to stay put all evening. – Anna Toon
