Verde Coal Oven
What You Should Order: Lucky Charlie Pizza, their cheapest red wine
We’ve given a lot of lip service to Verde in the past, and with good reason. There aren’t a lot of places where you can settle indefinitely into a huge booth, washing authentic coal oven pizza down with red wine and listening to more Frank Sinatra than you’ve heard in one sitting maybe ever. These kinds of restaurants are few and far between. The delicate crust here tends to get overwhelmed by the addition of too many toppings, so best to stick with their “Lucky Charlie,” a mouth-watering white pizza with gorgonzola that’s been on their menu since the very beginning.
