What I Love About Slice Pizzeria:
1. Great salads. My favorite is the Mescalun, shown below. It features organic petite greens, chevre goat cheese (which is wonderful, by the way), toasted walnuts and local berries. Depending on the day, I have gotten blueberries, strawberries and blackberries in it which are always fresh and sweet. Much appreciated. I've never been served a served a bad berry. The caesar has a proper dressing and is topped with roasted red pepper, shaved peccorino, a crostini and a lemon wedge. I wish the romaine leaves were served whole, but it's not a deal breaker. Best part is that the salads can be ordered in Half ($3.95) or Whole ($6.95) which is a pretty nice price considering the quality of the ingredients.
2. Really nice pizza by the slice. New Orleans doesn't have great pizza. Honestly, this isn't great pizza either, but it is pretty good. Nice toppings options like Chesesi ham, andouille, capers, caramellized onions, and gorgonzola are a treat.
3. Newly opened second location at Magazine and Joseph, across from Whole Foods in the old Italian Pie location. Convenient!
What I Don't Like About Slice Pizzeria
Last night, we made the mistake of deviating from pizza and salad and ordered the cheese ravioli. Despite being cute, with yellow and green striped pasta, it was flavorless and disappointing. Six raviolis, swimming in sauce that tasted like it was straight out of the can, with dried out pasta and an unimpressive 4 cheese filling.... Bust. Next time, I'll stick with the pizza.
