Great Takeout: Rustico

If the vast beer selection at this brewpub intrigues you, sip a tall one at the bar while waiting for your to-go order. Dubbed Rusti-Go, the takeout menu is similar to one you’d find at any bar, but here you can also get a custom six-pack (or two) of amazing beers to wash down your crisp-crusted Rustico pizza ($11 to $16). Seasonal combos such as a tomato/zucchini/ricotta-salata/country-ham pizza are delicious, but you can’t go wrong with classic pepperoni.

Thoughtfully put-together salads such as tossed baby greens with shaved fennel, ricotta, and a citrus-Champagne vinaigrette ($8) and soups such as cheddar-and-ale ($6) are great takeout options, but the burger and fries ($12) go flabby in a plastic container.
