|Cambridge, 1. (This is the Fenway location at 1381 Boylston St. in Boston. There's also a Harvard Square location at 27 Church St. in Cambridge.)|
The menu features 13 charcoal grilled pizzas along with some salads, pasta, and soup. The pizzas come in half and full sizes; a half size left me satisfied but not uncomfortably stuffed.
A rep from J.K.'s Scrumpy Hard Cider came by and gave us free cider (and t-shirts!) Scrumpy Cider is organic and comes from a small farm in Michigan. We tried the original flavor as well as the seasonal Solstice (brewed with cinnamon, vanilla, and maple syrup). Both were very sweet and tasted virtually non-alcoholic, very similar to apple juice. I generally prefer very dry ciders, but these were a pleasant surprise for a sweeter cider.
We sampled a couple of appetizers; the wings were nice and meaty, and the warm flatbread that came with the meat platter was excellent.
It's a shame I'm writing this post days after going to one of New Haven's famous pizza places - more on that later this week - so I'm currently a bit biased against all other pizzas. If you like ultra-crispy flatbread pizzas, though, Cambridge, 1. is a decent place to go. Joel and I were a little underwhelmed, but he's a major pizza snob with a preference for NY/CT style, and I'm still on a New Haven pizza high, but this is really a very different type of pizza.
