Flour & Stone describes its pizza as an artisan East Coast pie with chewy thin-crust, filled with bubbles and topped with a tangy sauce. Each pie is cooked in a 600-degree oven and served with simple toppings such as mushrooms, fresh basil or bacon (it may be an import, but they need some Midwestern flavor).
For an oven-to-table experience, pull up a stool at the counter that seats five and overlooks the pizza-prep station as well as the fire-filled oven. Additional seating is available on the ground floor with windows overlooking the street. There are also two more floors with tables and televisions to watch sports.
Each 13-inch pizza serves one to two people. Flour & Stone also serves salads and offers carryout.
