Wood Stack Pizza Kitchen
29 Route 46 East
Open: Lunch, Tues-Fri; dinner, Tues-Sun; brunch, Sat & Sun
Style: Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas and Italian fare from an open kitchen in a big, comfortable space with a large bar.
The Scoop: Founded by brothers Charlie and Giuseppe Badalamenti in 2015, Wood Stack takes its beer as seriously as its pizza. Its 13 draughts all come from Jersey breweries such as Carton, Kane, Bolero Snort, and nearby Magnify and Cricket Hill. Beer flights are offered. Spirits, cocktails and wine are available, but you can bring your own wine for a corkage fee of $20 per bottle.
The Menu: The puffy, charred pizzas are cooked in 90 seconds in the 900-degree oven. They’re terrific—and wallet friendly. The Marmala nicely balances sweet and savory, combining bacon marmalade with arugula, fior di latte mozzarella and extra-virgin olive oil. The iSay Cheese uses four types; the Winter Fell tops brisket with barbecue sauce, fior di latte mozzarella and pickled red onions. For entrées, choose from salmon, chicken, pork shoulder and short rib. The latter, with eggplant purée, kale and fingerling potatoes, was excellent.
Heads Up: During dinner hours, Wood Stack’s parking lot is strictly valet, but the good news is the service is free.Click here to leave a comment
