Freskada's open kitchen flaunts the 6-foot wood-fired grill and stone pizza oven, which yield the menu's freshly made pies. Patrons schlep their own beer, wine, and silk bibs to accompany the BBQ chicken pizza's parade of poultry and red onions steeped in a smoky house sauce ($13.99). Beneath paintings of Italian landscapes, char-grilled veggie pizzas loaded with seared zucchini, eggplant, and mushrooms ($13.99) harness the power of both timber-fueled cookers. Knives plunge through the Drunken Shroomy filet, an 8-ounce center-cut steak overlaid with a three-mushroom brandy sauce, grilled asparagus, and potatoes smashed to a consistency fluffier than a pillow filled with shredded spoken-word poetry ($26.99).
