Well ate at Citizen Kane’s last night. New Argentine red that is an improvement on the Bulgarian red they had before.
Always a f***ing good deal on Mondays. two for the price of one. I love the salmon and caper pizza but what happened to the artichokes and what else did it have before feta cheese? So good value and good hearty food but lacking in sophistication (spices like oregano and a tomato sauce that is veering a bit too closely to ketchup flavor in its sweetness) and not a big deal but I do find the edges a bit too bready and overcooked on occasion so the pizza vote for me is still
Cosi a Cosi 8.25
Alley Cat’s 7.0
Citizen Kane 5.0
And I am basing this on a real 10 point scale not the inflation that goes with other scales where bad starts at 5.0 and not 0 so in my book a 5.0 is still very solid for a pizzeria. I would only give Paris 1930 in Taipei a 10.0 so unless something truly stands out… and before everyone bitches at me regarding the 7.0 score for Alley Cat’s, I have to point out that there is really no service regimen to speak of so that has to count for something, and as much as I like Alley Cat’s, I am still giving Cosi a Cosi a noticeably higher score because their pizza DOES ROCK. That said, there is always room for good new restaurants and Alley Cat’s has my total seal of approval for what they are and offer.
