A real clairvoyant can read the future in a pizza's array of toppings, foretelling diners' distant stock-market boons and immediate upticks in napkin use. Fulfill saucy prophecy with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, pasta, subs, and beverages at Pizan's Pizza in New Bedford.
Pizan's multitudinous menu teems with exciting twists on time-honored Italian culinary darlings. Avant-garde pie admirers will delight at the unorthodox garnishes applied to the golden circlets, which include tortellini and feta cheese, and don their most celebratory berets at the sight of the edgy clam pizza ($16.50), bedecked in garlic, chopped clams, diced tomatoes, red pepper, and fresh herbs. The restaurant's specialty pies also include the Marky Mark ($16.50), a ranch-slathered mélange of spinach, feta, onion, and roasted red pepper, and the chicken saltimboca ($20), a duet of fowl and prosciutto, accompanied by capers, artichoke hearts, and sage. Solo eaters can chow on combos pairing two slices of pizza with a fountain soda ($6+), or sample the eatery's selection of subs, pastas, and leafy delights, such as the dried prosciutto and Gorgonzola cheese salad ($6 for an individual portion). A selection of beer and wine (dine-in only) serve as salve for over-cheesed esophagi.
Seven Yelpers give Pizans an average of 4.5 stars.
Owner Howie Mallowes set up shop across from the Martha's Vineyard ferry terminal, where his restaurant specializes in infusing New York–style pies with gourmet ingredients such as shrimp, gorgonzola, and steak. Amongst the fresh harbor air, staffers shuttle whole pizzas and single slices to tables of visitors and regulars until the wee hours of 2 a.m. every night. The menu plays host to more than a dozen specialty pizzas such as the Pizans "Soon to be Famous" Clam Pizza, which just signed a three-picture deal with DreamWorks. Pizzas share stomach space with pastas, oven-baked grinders, footlong subs, beer, and wine.
