Come to Magpie for wood-fired pizza in a rustically hip atmosphere. Schoolhouse-style chairs surround thick pine tables and industrial pendants light the space. Simplicity rules the menu with Italian-sourced and fresh ingredients. There are nine different thin-crust options with mouth-watering toppings like caramelized onions and ricotta, and always a[‘]Za of the week. It’s fine to bring kids (service is friendly, but can be slow) and adults can opt to make a meal of oysters, salad, and charcuterie if they’re pizza-ed out. In addition to beer and wine, there are a few apertifs, including Chinotto punch and a house Bloody Mary. Unlike most pizza joints, this one is serious about dessert. Tarte tatin with lemon crème anglaise over almond shortbread? Yes, please! Reservations recommended.
