Considering that Adam took over 130 pictures of London restaurants we ate at, it was only natural that we start chronicling our thoughts and opinions about the food we eat. We've totally become accidental foodies. It all started out when Sheila started calling Adam "the human trash compactor"; since he eats almost anything. But somewhere along the way we started having discussions about food and seeking out culinary adventures when on travel. We bring a unique perspective to this arena as we're both vegetarians (no meat, poultry, or fish). I suspect we will both have varying opinions on the food, and hope to not only have a record for posterity, but provide some fun, useful if not amateur insight.

zero zero

Magherita Extra $13.95

Ambiance is amazing, a loft like space that reminded us in scale to Dosa on Fillmore. The place is definitely hopping and was completely packed by 6:30 on the Saturday we went; especially the two bars! We both agreed it's a great place for a group meal with close friends given the ability to cater to more that a two person crowd.

On to the pizza, the dough was incredibly chewy after a two-minute bake in the 900-degree oven. The chewiness is undoubtedly a byproduct of the famed Napolitano zero zero flour. Of course the buffalo mozzarella and tomato sauce were top notch. However overall it was not memorable. Similar pizzas are being made all over the city. Instead the inventive cocktails (picco collins and spiced pimms cup), organic beets with faro & pistachios and wild nettle angnotti with chanterelle did steal the show for us.

Bottom line, we'd go back with close friends for happy hour or a nice night out, but won't become regulars.

Next up, Una Pizza Napoletana…
