Teenagers idolize pizza due to its portable nature and refusal to stay in a box, man. Eat your way to independence with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza and drinks at Dick's Pizza and Pleasure.
Chefs at Dick's Pizza and Pleasure work a coal-fired oven to forge a menu of pies that fills the futuristic lounge with enticing aromas. Burning at temperatures in excess of 700 degrees, the oven yields crisp, light crusts, which serve as ideal canvasses for guest-designed pizzas crowned with local produce and toppings such as roasted mushrooms, gorgonzola, and white anchovies ($9+). The house-cured-sausage pizza flaunts red onion, mozzarella, pecorino cheese, and organic tomatoes crushed by hand ($13). Shavings of black-truffle mushrooms embellish the top of the White and Black pizza ($15), along with house-made white sauce and fontina, mozzarella, parmesan, and burrata cheese. Dick's kitchen dispenses cold alcoholic or virgin milkshakes such as the Acapulco Gold, a blend of vanilla ice cream, Kahlua, Nutella, house-made caramel, and chocolate-covered espresso beans ($8), while the seasonal cocktail menu makes use of fresh fruits and top-shelf liquors to fuel revelry without saving up yard clippings to bribe a satyr.
The sleek alabaster interior of the dining room at Dick's surprises eyes with oversized anime prints and crackling splashes of day-glo color. Although this Groupon is not valid for use at the nightclub located on the second and third floors of Dick's, weekly events and DJ nights entertain dinner guests and keep jealous dancing legs from plotting against happy bellies.
