Fodor's Review

Hoxton locals seem to have taken up residence at this knockabout gourmet pizza parlor, which serves up chewy, 10-inch, wood-fired, thin-crust, crispy pizzas in Hoxton's converted Tea Building—a boisterous and achingly au courant 170-seat setting of exposed concrete walls, raw brickwork, pipes, pillars, and ducting. Amid a soundscape of Bow Wow Wow and X-Ray Spex, mix things up at long refectory-style shared tables with a starter of sea bass carpaccio with fennel and chili, or broad beans with Italian pecorino, before tearing into one of the 11 semolina-crust pizzas, which might be topped with veal meatballs or San Daniele ham, ricotta, and pesto. There's wine by the tap, cocktails by the jug, plus karaoke, slam poetry, hip-hop, or old-school vinyl sessions in the Concrete basement bar.
