Baker & Brewer Image

Hours: Lunch, Dinner (daily)

Imagine if Holy City Brewing and EVO Pizzeria had a baby. Oh, wait. That already happened. Born in spring 2019, new arrival Baker & Brewer combines the lofty warehouse space and innovative craft brews you love, with the dough-based sustenance you need. Set just off Huger Street in the old DeSano Pizza Bakery building, the adorable offspring is actually a family affair, as little sister EVO Craft Bakery has her own corner, replete with early morning hours and her own separate entrance. Service is friendly and efficient, and food comes up quickly. While the appetizer offerings skew heavy, the peach salad is a crisp, refreshing bowl of summer. Made with a base of delicate Kurios Farms Bibb lettuce and pungent cilantro leaves, it’s topped with toasted pecans, pickled red peppers, and juicy fresh peaches. Squeeze on some lemon or eat it plain and it’s wholesome summer bliss. Meanwhile, any fan of the original EVO knows all about the eponymous extra virgin ovens. Wood-fired splendors endure at B&B, where the Margherita pizza is every bit as reliable as its predecessor. Wonderfully balanced, it’s all about sweet crushed tomatoes and aromatic basil leaves, tempered by the chewy dough and mellow fresh mozzarella cheese. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Summer 2019)
