Communal dining is easy when the food is already divided, like a presliced pizza or a turkey that has already been through a protracted custody battle. Split and share with this Groupon.
Piles of chopped wood rest below the brick pizza ovens at Sianos, waiting to feed the flames that crisp hand-tossed dough, fresh-cut veggies, and meaty toppings sourced from local butchers and markets. The brick façade extends to the walls, which absorb the soft overhead lights that illuminate wooden tables and booths laden with seafood risottos, soups and chowders, and tomato-sauce-covered chicken. Scrawled in multicolored chalk across a blackboard expanse, the day’s Italian-inspired specials pair with delicious pours from the bar, which range from frosty local brews to European imports and extraterrestrial drafts. Refusing to be typecast as a pizza joint, Sianos also dishes out savory breakfast plates such as eggs benedict, pancakes, french toast, and breakfast pizza made with egg sauce.
