This post got lost in the shuffle with our move! On our “to eat” list before we moved was Revolution Pizza up in NoDa. We’d been there before for beer after our dinner at Boudreaux’s Louisiana Kitchen, but hadn’t yet had the opportunity to eat dinner. One night, the Husband and I made it a point to head north to check it out.
Parking can sometimes be a pain in NoDa so we were happy to see a spot behind the restaurant. Apparently, it’s $1 to park for 24 hours. The machine to collect the money? Not at all technical You just roll up your dollar and stick it in the corresponding numbered hole. There’s even a tool to help you out.
The Husband and I were hungry and decided to go with an appetizer. We ordered the Farmhouse Bruschetta. It was tomato, basil, basil oil, parmigiano reggiano, and a balsamic reduction over grilled ciabatta. This dish was delicious! We were very glad we ordered it. The balsamic reduction went nicely with the rest of it and the ciabatta was crispy on the outside and warm and soft on the inside. Great choice!
Before our entrees came out, the Husband and I ordered some beers. We had debated about whether to get any, but with the great selection they have, we couldn’t turn it down. The Husband went with the Catawba Firewater from Morganton. It was an IPA with citrus and caramel flavors. He thought it was fine, but didn’t love it. I decided to try the Duck-Rabbit Imperial Stout from Farmville. While cold, I didn’t like it. At 10% alcohol, the alcohol after-taste was just too strong. As it got warmer, I liked it better but don’t expect to order it again.
Since we were going there for pizza, that’s what we were going to get The Husband and I each designed a small pizza to share. My pizza was red sauce, mozzarella, fresh mushrooms, roasted garlic, and truffle oil. I have fallen in love with truffle oil and now order it whenever I have an opportunity to (and it’s not insanely priced). The truffle oil and roasted garlic were perfect on this pizza.
The Husband ordered a white pizza with provolone and prosciutto. His was less flavorful than mine, but not bad.
Overall, we enjoyed both of our pizzas and are disappointed that we didn’t make it there until right before we moved. The pizza crust was crispy on the ends and the right amount of doughy. Our waitress was a sweetheart, and we love the beer selection. What more could you ask for?
