Calling it “just a neighborhood pizza joint” is like calling a penguin “just a bird.” This Penguin proudly wears a tux, so to speak, serving pies laden with duck confit, preserved fig jam, smoked salmon and other toppings fancier than expected for a simple, lo-fi-looking space. Craft beers flow and locals flock for brunch. Yeah, it’s a neighborhood pizza joint—but while looks deceive, taste buds don’t lie.
