Had dinner tonight at a new restaurant in Davis Square called Posto Pizzeria and was impressed on all fronts. There is really nothing like it in the area as far as dinner options go. The loft-like space manages to feel large and cozy at the same time with high ceilings, exposed beams and a wall of windows that open in nice weather. There is a separate bar area with a few tastefully placed flat screen TV's and dining room with views of the open kitchen, where you can watch pizzas being made before they make a visit to the brick oven. I had the Spring Salad with an expertly seasoned Roasted Tomato Vinaigrette to start and then the Margherita DOC pizza with San Marzano tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella cheese, that had just a touch of char to its deliciously crisp, slightly chewy crust. Posto boasts a stellar wine list with many options available by the glass, half or full bottle, a wide variety of local beers and a cocktail menu that includes inventive classics like the Aperol Spritz and the Mistaken Negroni. You can tell that everything is freshly made using quality ingredients and I think the expansive selection of drool-worthy menu options is reason enough to keep coming back.
What can I say, I love food. Trying a new recipe, food or restaurant is my all-time favorite hobby. For me, a 29 year old public relations professional and self-taught cook, cooking is essential to staying healthy and sane. I am an avid reader of Food&Wine, Bon Appetit and Everyday Food. Mark Bittman is my food hero. I tend to gravitate towards healthy cooking but also believe in occasionally eating for pure pleasure. Creating a food blog has been a goal of mine for such a long time. The purpose of Give 'N Taste is for me to share my passion for good food and some of my favorite finds with friends and family. Hope you enjoy it!
