Ferrari’s post on this place was nested inside July’s openings+closings thread so I’ll start a new one. We skipped having lunch in Worcester because the timing was not quite right for cipollini and the Ecotarium (we drove up-and-down Shrewsbury Street to kill some time while cipollini napped in the car and there were interesting-looking restaurants, like Volturno Pizza). Food options, as expected at the Ecotarium, were slim pickings.
By the time we reached Arlington, we were famished. After quick stops at Wilson Farm and Berman’s, I suggested pizza from CK. Space is really pleasant, guys behind the counter were awesome. We picked up a giant loaf of sourdough (photo doesn’t do it justice), and 2 pizzas - vegetarian (broccoli rabe, mushrooms, pine nut+thyme gremolata, and a white béchamel sauce) and clambake (clams, bacon, corn, potatoes, white béchamel, and Old Bay crust). Both had thin crusts and big puffy heels (which we both LOVE). My choice was the favorite. I sampled B’s - it was a little light on clams but otherwise delicious. The veggie had all of my favorite, earthy flavors. CK is definitely our favorite new pizza place. We can’t wait to dig into the bread.
