True to its name, San Gennaro Wood Fired Brick Oven Pizza & Ristorante churns out crispy, bubbly, Old World–style pies from a brick-lined, wood-fired kiln. Guests gather at wraparound communal benches surrounded by rustic, bare-brick walls, watching chefs toss disks of dough high into the air and cover pizzas in Italian tomatoes, chicken, and shaved prosciutto. Like the Roman empire, San Gennaro's culinary authority extends beyond Italy. Diners can opt for chicken wings with inventive sauces such as buffalo blue, a blend of buffalo sauce and blue cheese.
