Mozzeria

$25-$30/groups of six to eight

Melody Stein grew up in a Chinese home eating all her meals family-style, and wanted to bring the experience to the pizzeria she runs with her husband, Russ Stein. At Mozzeria, groups of six to eight choose between two menus.

To start, there’s house-made burrata, eggplant Parmesan and the signature Mozzeria Bar, Stein’s Goliath version of a mozzarella stick. Neapolitan-style pizzas follow, with toppings that span traditional Margherita to Peking duck with English cucumbers and hoisin sauce. Dessert is for dunkers — bomboloni (round Italian doughnuts) filled with apple-lemon curd with a dipping sauce of melted chocolate. The menu changes seasonally.
