Brick Fire Tavern gives downtown explorers who are on the hunt for some of the best culinary creations a real bang for their buck with its authentic Neapolitan pizzas. To make things even better, Brick Fire puts on a stellar happy hour Monday-Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m. with desirable food and drink specials.
The space is charming yet spacious with a mix of traditional and contemporary accents. The rustic and grand oven for baking pizza sits in view behind the bar for customers to gaze upon. Keep the good vibes rolling as you take a trip into the menu, beginning with the appetizers.
Fresh Pulled Mozzarella ($12) is a light start that graciously tease taste buds for what’s to follow. Owner Matthew Resich divulges that he and his team make the mozzarella fresh, in-house every day. The way they craft the cheese results in soft and juicy bites, adding lovely character to the dish it is paired with whether on pizza or as a side.
The Fresh Pulled Mozzarella is also served with Brick Fire’s focaccia house bread that provides an enjoyable crunch to the pillowy mozzarella.
For the main course, sink your teeth into creative pies like Tony Soprano ($19) or The Lamb-orghini ($19).
The Tony Soprano, Resich shares, was created by his sister — who happens to be a familiar face to Dining Out fans, Ali Resich — when they recently rewatched the popular HBO Series, The Sopranos together. In one episode, Tony goes into a butchery and orders a capicola with ricotta and hot peppers. That’s when Ali suggested that would be great on a pizza.
“We put it as a special and it was so popular that it made it on the menu,” says Resich.
Speaking of specials, you won’t want to miss out on this week’s treat, The Lamb-orghini ($19) — available tomorrow until supplies last. This pizza will have you licking your lips for every last bit of flavor. It stacks Niihau lamb, fresh mozzarella, feta cheese, red onion, tomato and an artichoke cream base. Resich shares he is excited to share this with guests as it takes on delightful hints of Mediterranean cuisine.
Be sure to check out Brick Fire Tavern for a dining experience unlike any other as you bask with delightful selections and exceptional customer service.
