Okay, so let's use the following formula to kick off this review:
Über-Yumness to the Nth degree...
Throw in some beer, the wife, two monkeys and our friends with their cutie little baby girl....and the experience becomes even better.
This wasn't our first time at the 2 Amy's, but my fat ass finally got around to writing a well deserved review. From our first visit, I was impressed with the quality of the food, the tasty brews and an environment/restaurant that didn't wince at the arrival of two adults with children....nay, they rejoiced and welcome us with smiles and high chairs.
If you're a "breeder" (a loving term given to us people that have shared DNA in order to create little ones by those without their own monkeys), then you'll enjoy the 2 Amy's. Not only is the food tasty and creative, but the restaurant welcomes parents with kids. You'll look around and see families after families enjoying their tasty pizzas with their younger DNA-combos sitting right next to them.
Anytime we arrive at the 2 Amy's our boys are given crayons and paper to keep them busy while Mommy and Daddy scan the pizza menus and while Daddy chooses a tasty brew. The pizza is cooked in their oven to perfection; the crust is always crispy and fresh tasting while the ingredients of whatever pizza ordered is top top top quality.
On this most recent occasion I ordered the Etna pizza which was topped with (pulled directly off their website's menu) Eggplant confit, olives, capers, oregano and grana....can you say UMMMM!??!?!?
The boss lady ordered a pizza (don't remember the name) with zucchini flowers, thin zucchini, squash and beautiful blobs of mozzarella cheese bulbs that to me (on first look) appeared to be small quail eggs. Her pizza was beautiful and who's beauty was only surpassed by the flavor.
Both pizzas were delicious and I'm glad that I hadn't listened to my wife who initially wanted to share a single pizza. We each destroyed our pizzas, sharing a few slices of one another's pizza to taste the other pizza. OMG...I missed you two gals...my 2 Amys.
We'll definitely be back and will happily make the multi-light heavy traffic voyage into the city for some pizza goodness. :-)
