PLAN DATE: THURS / AUG. 15
Nothing hits the spot quite like a fluffy, flavorful Neapolitan pizza, and a brand new joint MidiCi, they get it right. Modern, spacious and bright, it’s a pizzeria that strives to be upbeat and quick. Go for the classics, like Double Pepperoni and Margherita, or make it fashion with daring discs of Shrimp Scampi, Truffle and Prosciutto or their bestseller, The Devil. Simple, fresh ingredients like these won’t let you down. It’s so satisfying, that you and your person will have to decide who gets the last slice.
Fresh, cool cocktails and a casual ambiance await you both at at laidback and lovely bar, The Exley. Their affordable array of options doesn’t skimp on the wild and wonderful, with drinkable creations that’ll blow your mind. Think concoctions like Eastern Rodeo (Bourbon, ginger, Chinese 5 spice, lemon), Smoke & Stone (Mescal, Apricot liquor, salers, lemon orange bitters), and Inclement Weather (Vodka, lemon, Clementine & clement). Always seasonal and new, these selections will kick that pizza date night up a nice, boozy notch.
