I’m a foodie…I enjoy no love food! And there are some foods that I can’t get enough of….Pizza being at the top of that list. So when I was invited out for GNO to Wolfgang Puck Pizza Bar, it was a no brainer Yes!
Located in Phillips Place near the Palm Restaurant, it’s a great eclectic restaurant. Parking in the area is not great so get there early to find a spot. The restaurant is nice & large with the bar located up front with limited seating around it & the main dining room is located behind the bar.
The service is good but we didn’t see our waitress too often once the restaurant started to fill up. We met up at 5:30 and by the time we left, a few hours later, the restaurant was booming. The golf after hours event across the street helped bring in the people too.
The drinks were great and the waitress was very knowledgeable in helping us decide what we wanted, with the help with the floor manager. My choice is always vodka so I tried the Razz Ale (vodka, raspberry liquer, fresh raspberries, & ginger ale). It was yum! The waitress got it right! There were other great drinks ordered by the table like The Back 9 and Prosecco cocktail. And all were nicely priced…which always a plus too!
Appetizers followed next like roasted cauliflower and white beans & kale. The roasted cauliflower was very good with bread crumbs and pepperoncini. I enjoyed seconds too! I didn’t care for the kale and white beans as the kale seemed bitter. Normally known to be bitter, either you have to acquire a taste for it or have it cooked where the bitterness goes away. Some good spices like tumerin, red pepper, and some haldi would help in that. But I enjoyed the experience of trying something different. After all, you don’t know what you like unless you try it!
Of course, with it being a pizza bar I had to have a pizza. Wolfgang Puck has an eclectic menu of pizzas like potato & egg, roasted eggplant, clam & garlic to name a few. I gave the goat cheese a try with marina sauce (traditionally served with pesto but as usual I have to change it up). All the pizzas were thin sliced and nice & large, 6 slices with a great toasty crust. I tried a slice of margherita pizza too and yet another delish pie. The basil brought out the taste of the cheese and san marzano tomato sauce. After consuming so much food, there was no space for dessert, that will be next time!
If you’re in the Southpark area, make sure to stop by this great restaurant!
