Last weekend I met up with friends to celebrate an old friend’s birthday. We met in North Hollywood’s artsy NoHo district, which is delightful. I’ll have to take Marco back there for some walking and window shopping. We ate at Pitfire Artisan Pizza, which started off a bit questionable, but ended up being great. Two of my friends asked for draft beer, which the restaurant advertises, but they were informed that there was no beer available on draft. They had a minimal selection of bottled beers in an open cooler next to the cash register, but they were closer to luke warm than cold. The waitress jokingly said they were also out of pizza and pasta, so she scored points with us! Since I was driving, I had a root beer. It turned out to be a “microbrew” root beer, which has a much stronger flavor than mass market root beer.
The birthday boy and I ordered the same type of pizza, and it was wonderful! It was simple pepperoni, but the sauce, cheese, meat and dough were all delicious. I don’t recommend the flatbread, though. It’s a little to crispy for my taste.
Here we are after a good meal, despite his less-than-cold beer.
