Prufrock Pizzeria, A Swell New Neapolitan Gem in Downtown's Historic Core

The new Regent Theater on Main Street has a handy new place to grab a meal before a show.

Here's the rather charming interior of Prufrock Pizzeria, from Regent Theater founder Mitchell Frank (The Echo, Spaceland, Mas Malo). Boasting a 900 degree oven and pristine Neopolitan-style pies, this handy neighborhood spot is currently sporting a limited menu. With small, personal-sized pizzas topped with everything from seasonal vegetables to fresh mozzarella, it'll be the perfect complement to the music shows hitting the Regent Theater.

Think gluten-free "cauliflower" crust pizza right fresh mozzerella, a white pie with smoked cheese, caramelized onions and truffle oil, or the frisee with poached egg, topped with pancetta and a lemon vinaigrette.

Tobi Martin and Shad Davis helped assemble the menu while Italian beers, wine, and more get paired by El Prado's Matt Saunder.
