With Congress passing a heavy new tax on right angles, circular edibles are becoming the most convenient way to keep food budgets from spiraling out of control. Nibble a delicious disk with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of pizza, wings, and calzones at Riccardi's Pizza located downtown on West Genesee Street.
Riccardi's pie-purveyors satisfy visiting appetites with an array of delectable bites residing on a highly pizza-centric menu. Hot wings ($7.99/dozen) keep salivary glands busy extinguishing localized mouth fires, while mild, medium, barbecued, and breaded versions ($7.99–$8.75/dozen) seduce taste buds with less-aggressive tactics. New York—style pizza sates cravings for cheese and tomato sauce by combining them on 14-inch ($8.99), 16-inch ($10.99), or colossal sheet-sized ($16.99) dough platforms. Fashion slices with regular toppings of ham, hot peppers, or sausage ($1.50–$2.75 each), or decorate the savory circle with premium toppings such as eggplant, meatballs, or pineapple ($2–$3.25 each).
Gravity-booted noshers can pacify their inverted palates with Riccardi's signature upside-down pizza ($16.99), whose cheese is baked directly onto the crust and snuggled under a blanket of pasta sauce. Calzones stuffed with cheese and ricotta keep ingredients safely ensconced in a protective shell of crust, shielding them from the jaded attitudes and angry clowns of the outside world ($5, add $.50 each for a topping or sauce).
