March 18, 2014 Area Four
From their website, “Area Four (and A4 outposts) takes its name from neighborhood of our flagship restaurant and cafe; Cambridge’s Area IV. With a rich history as an important transportation hub, Area IV was a major industrial center in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is now a global epicenter of biotech and information firms due to its proximity to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).”
Our waiter was cool and laid back, but didn’t ignore us. We started off with the garlic knots ($12), and made them “supreme”. Pecorino and gremolata, the cast iron skillet is covered in signature red sauce and covered in cheese. Don’t plan on kissing anyone after eating these, they’re packed with garlic (but oh so good).
Craving pizza, we had the large margherita with sausage and a fried egg ($28.50). So good! Maybe even the best pizza we have had in a long time. Check out my buddy in my Favecast video: http://favecast.com/49ADfHknt5
I had the mac and cheese with bacon ($14). It was just the right amount of cheese and came topped with a croissant crumb topping. We were full at the end of our meal, but they had some good looking soft serve sundaes for dessert! Can’t wait to go back and try some of the other items on the menu.
