The cooks at GiGi's Cafe call their cuisine soul food––and that's true if your soul happens to crave tender beef or pork ribs slathered in housemade hot or mild barbecue sauce, fresh-baked desserts like sweet potato pie, or Broaster chicken, a less greasy alternative to fried chicken. Of course, it's hard to imagine any entity––celestial or otherwise––turning down succulent pulled pork or chicken or neatly cut squares of baked mac & cheese or fresh-cooked corn on the cob. When it comes to universal crowd pleasers, though, the real winner might be GiGi's impressive triple-decker chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, a slice of which makes an especially fitting ending to a decadent meal or a bad first date with a personal trainer.

Michael Merendino grew up hearing stories about his family history. Sitting in his father's pizzeria, he learned how the Merendinos left Sicily for Long Island in the 1900s, and about the bits of Old World culture that they brought along with them. One such touchstone was the rustica: a small, pizza-like creation traditionally made with unused pieces of bread dough. Michael brought the rustica with him when he moved from the East Coast to the East Valley, making it the star of his menus at Crust Restaurants.

Crust's hand-stretched rusticas arrive topped with everything from marinated tomatoes and fresh mozzarella to arugula and prosciutto, and are sized for individual diners. To help feed larger groups, the chefs also bake 20-inch, thin-crust pies as well as square pizzas ideal for diners on a strict Euclidean diet. Hearty entrées such as homemade meatball parmigiana, chicken marsala, and shrimp scampi, round out the menu of comforting Italian-American favorites.
