We finally made it to Delancey on Saturday, the same day I opened my latest issue of Sunset magazine to find the restaurant noted as one of best pizza places in the West.
Booked a table for a group weeks ago to avoid the two-hour wait. Indulged in wood-fired thin-crust goodness.
To die for (IMHO):
Starter: Wood oven-roasted radicchio – preserved Meyer lemon, garlic breadcrumbs, anchovy vinaigrette.
Pizzas: the Brooklyn, the Sausage, the Crimini and even the Romana (though very spicy)
Dessert: Meyer lemon budino with candied pistachios, anise caramel and sable cookie
Value wine: Chateau Jouclary Cabardes Cuvee Tradition, France 2006
