About Vin 909 Winecafe
Some folks are probably wondering how on earth a bungalow that made its reputation on pizzas could snag a spot so high on this list.
Well, that bungalow is one of the most inviting getaways you’re going to find that doesn’t also cost a small fortune, the mood even on a weekday night has a feel-great buzz, and those brick-oven pizzas are spectacular—the region’s best.
But this isn’t just a pizzeria and wine bar.
The chef, Justin Moore, is a big-time talent, albeit a self-effacing one—one reason you might not know his name. He has a terrific palate and an unerring sense of what goes together, which is why his simple food, such as a warm ball of hand-pulled mozzarella, is so much more satisfying than nearly everyone else’s and why his more involved dishes are never fussy.
