Though I love all kinds of food, every once in a while only a good slice of pizza will do. In Boonton at the Reservoir Tavern, I found some really great pizza.
First, I tried an order of the Shrimp Calabrese appetizer that was out of this world. This dish was highly recommended, and I couldn’t resist ordering it to check it out for myself. The chewy bread and tender shrimp were scrumptious, and once I tasted the spicy and savory broth, I knew why it was such a favorite. (If the pizza wasn’t already on its way out, I would have asked for more bread to finish up the broth!)
Then came the pizza. Since this was my first time at the Reservoir Tavern, I figured I should try some of their plain pizza. So, I went with half plain and a half broccoli rabe and sun-dried tomato combination (not one of their specials, but ingredients from the build-your-own menu).
Piping hot when it was delivered to the table, the crust was crispy, the aroma intoxicating, and it was everything you would want a fresh pizza to be. I tried a slice each of the plain and the toppings, and both were delicious!
I am looking forward to heading back to try a different variety of pizza – guess which appetizer I’m going to start off with when I do?
