Like a neighborhood-style pizzeria, the Brick Oven on 35th Street serves homestyle, thin-crust pizzas and pastas with a personal touch. Red sauces dominate the pastas, while most pizzas also tend toward the traditional, with the notable exception of chipotle pesto chicken pizza. Unlike a neighborhood pizzeria, the Brick Oven gives equal time to pasta and pizza. Fresh baked bread and cool salads with every meal add inches at the waistline, but make for a terrific pocketbook regime. The September 2000 change in ownership hasn't affected the menu or the quality -- the Brick Oven still serves some of the best pizza in town.
