They got screwed by NIMBYs. Should have probably done their homework better, but still a bummer.
Yeah like you would want a rowdy beer garden in your back yard.
Actually, that is precisely my vision of a perfect back yard
i just want a neighborhood full of entitled NIMBYs who get their revenge on the world through blog comments
Oh still not open?
I wonder how their business will do now that there aren’t a bunch of drunks staring out the door of a bar pointed right at a pizza joint.
Just tossing in my two cents… this place is crazy tasty! It’s a little out of our normal budget, but we hope they can stick around. Great pieces and good beer.
It’s got a solid pizza, might be a little more costly than normal. Too bad they couldn’t get the proper permitting to open the back up. Would have made for a nice spot
It’s mediocre, overpriced pizza in an uninspiring location.
I think Yelp is the website you’re looking for.
Using the term “uninspiring” is an instant tip-off that you are a total ass hat.
I was unimpressed with their slices. The Pizza Shop on 24th is way more tasty.
I agree, the Pizza Shop has much better pizza. Rustic’s advantage was supposed to be that they served beer outside and had bocce. Until that happens, there’s no reason to come here.
Once you put “artisan” in the description you know it can’t be that good. Safeway sells “artisan” items; I make “artisan” items in my “country kitchen”; I even went to summer camp with Artie Zahn; if the waitstaff refer to it as artisaaan (accent on the last syllable), then you know it’s not the real deal. My Italian nonna made pizza “from scratch” and didn’t call it “artisan”. She grew grapes in the backyard and we all crushed the grapes with our feet. We didn’t call it locally-sourced (from our backyard) and sustainable. We simply enjoyed it and relished the time spent with our families.
You’re sometimes right, which means you’re a lot wrong.
Doesn’t help that it smells like piss right outside the door.. Is that the Artisan part?
Some artisanal, some artisurinal.
What’s the deal? Can someone explain? Is this about some pathetic swine complaining about noise? I’m okay with that for late night places but a little beer garden? Just give the swine some free beer once in a while and they’ll be happy bacon soon enough… silly humans.
I would pay SO much if I could only have steaming hot pizza AND bocce. Why OH WHY can this not be so?? God, is this Poughkeepsie or what?
The blog so nice they named it twice.
