Land a new client. Sell your new rom-com. Drive half a block on Third Street.
And now: you can get a blazing-hot Chicken Fennel Sausage Pizza, crisped with lightning speed over a roaring 800-degree fire.
Introducing Olio Pizzeria & Café, a sliver of a spot built around an impressively powerful wood-burning oven, opening Friday at the corner of Third and Crescent Heights.
Think of it as a little neighborhood pizzeria with the blinding-hot power of the sun―there are just a few tables inside and out, and basically everything you order comes from the huge oven behind the counter.
You’ll want to come early to warm yourself by the fire with Intelligentsia coffee and a White Peach and Fig Danish, and be back later for a crispy Margherita Pizza cranked out in a scant 180 seconds. (Ideal for back-to-back-to-back power lunches.) Even your salad gets a taste of the flame―the apples and pine nuts are fire-roasted.
And in a few short weeks, they’ll bring in further necessities like beer, wine and Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes.
You demand piping-hot pancakes.
