A cheese pizza is a blank canvas just waiting to be decorated with pepperoni to symbolize life, onions to symbolize sorrow, and pineapple to symbolize fruit. Eat something meaningful with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of artisanal pizza and drinks at Crisp Pizza Bar & Lounge.

At Crisp Pizza Bar & Lounge, chefs craft neapolitan pizzas from scratch with locally sourced ingredients, and mixologists shake and stir signature cocktails at a neon-lit bar. Diners can peruse a menu packed with poetic pizza expression before wrapping teeth couplet around 1 of 10 signature slices such as mac 'n' cheese, whose hand-tossed crust snoozes under a blanket of rosemary-and-roasted-garlic cream sauce and classic comfort pasta made with creamy goat cheese ($5/slice; $10–$20/pie). Pizza Picassos can construct build-your-own pies ($10+ for a personal-size pizza, $20+ for a large) from more than 35 toppings such as Nueske's bacon and lamb sausage, 14 cheeses, such as smoked blue, and 11 sauces, including curried coconut. Patrons not in a pie mood can opt for the balsamic BLT ($7) or blackberry salad tossed with baby spinach ($8). Customers who find gluten's pompous elasticity intolerable can ask their servers about gluten-free options.

Guests can stealthily admire fellow patrons’ food, drink, and fashion choices from Crisp’s mezzanine-level balcony, or head downstairs to retrieve mojitos ($9) or microbrews ($4–$5) from the full bar. Or, they can abscond to the outdoor patio to dine under nature's 3-D flat screen, the sky.

Crisp Pizza Bar & Lounge

Crisp Pizza Bar & Lounge’s super-heated Neapolitan-style oven bakes crunchy cracker-like crusts topped with chef-curated ingredient bouquets or build-your-own-pizza creations. The restaurant also transforms into a morning-meal factory for Friday–Sunday brunches, flipping expectations on the heads with funky adaptations of morning classics, such as the breakfast pizza topped with scrambled eggs and a pepperoni-wrapped alarm clock. By night, the eatery doubles as a music venue, with a rotating schedule of DJs setting hips asway with high-octane playlists.

Customer Reviews

The price range seems a little high but the amount of food you get for what you pay is well worth it!

Great food. Our waiter was a bit inattentive and seemed to have trouble multitasking but he may be new so we gave him the benefit of the doubt... More wait staff may have been helpful. Overall a good experience.

The food in general was a little salty for my taste, but still pretty good.
