The former Italiano's is now Town, a funky New York-style pizza parlor serving counter slices like mole with housemade pulled pork, corn, and queso fresco. Founded by Joram Young (who opened a burger joint called Little Woody's in Seattle), Scott Lunceford, and Sean Kelly, Town soft open yesterday, with the interior featuring classic subway tile, raw wood and cement floors. Highland Park hasn't had a takeaway, by-the-slice pizzeria like this for quite some time, and with burgeoning activity on York, it's about time that something like this hit the boulevard.
Also on the menu, house-made fennel sausage, vegan roasted garlic, pepperoni, and pesto slices. Delivery is coming soon while the larger dining room in next door hasn't opened yet, but the partners are planning to do full dinner service in a few months.
