Cheap Eats 2018: Alatri Bros.

At this pizzeria from the guys behind Olazzo and Gringos & Mariachis, we forgo the usual charcuterie platter in favor of the more creative vegetable board. The array—which could itself serve as dinner—includes roasted carrots with salsa verde and quinoa brittle, fried cauliflower, beets with mint, and whipped feta. When it comes to pies, it’s all about the bubbly-crusted Margherita. Also good: Buffalo Brussels sprouts; meatball sliders; fig-Gorgonzola-and-prosciutto flatbread; Alsace pizza with Gruyère and pancetta.
