Quick: what’s round and cheesy, cooked in a wood-burning oven and frequently topped with various meats and vegetables?

...

Yeah, you’re right. That was a pretty terrible riddle.

Nonetheless, get thee to Pizza Beach, what an Upper East Side pizza place would look like if it were right on a beach and not here, in the middle of February. It’s open now.

The men behind Brinkley’s and the East Pole are responsible for this. And those have worked out pretty swimmingly for you in the past. So let’s take a look at what’s going on this time around:

For one, Thai coconut curry and rock shrimp is a Neapolitan pizza now. So’s lamb merguez with oaxaca cheese. Grabbing the spot on the wood-plank banquette right under the surfboard and ordering one, if not both, of those is a good place to start here with, oh, let’s say a first date. Yes, this place is for those.

Ipso facto, drinks ought to make an appearance. They take the whole “beach” part pretty seriously, so you’re looking at vanilla coladas and limoncello mojitos as far as those are concerned.

Whiskey drinks finally snapped and moved to LA.
