Last March, Bon Appetit announced
that we are "in a golden age of regional pizza." This summer, City Paper'

Anthony Falco will be popping up at Uptown Social — a TV-laden pub replete with frozen slushies, sportsball, and bar pies — for a special butter crust (think rich, pan-style crust) pizza event Wed. May 22 and Thurs. May 23 starting at 6 p.m., making the square pies "while supplies last."
Before opening, the Social crew enlisted Falco to help with the pizza pie R&D. They even have a pie named after him — their version of a classic margherita, 'The Falco,' comes with aged mozz and Grana Padano.
Falco must've sprinkled some magic on the dough, because of all the personal pans in the city, Charlestonian's voted Uptown "Charleston's Pizza of the Year" for Eater
