Best New Restaurant: Yellow Brick Pizza

From the Best New Restaurant: Yellow Brick Pizza edition

Tomato pie munchkins and wizards alike have discovered that if you follow the Yellow Brick road, you get great pizza. Yellow Brick's handmade crispy/chewy, not too thick/not too thin crusts have brought this hot pizzeria citywide distinction. But so have YBP's toppings - which range from all the expected stuff (the Classico) to breakfast burrito fixins (the Pico Blvd.) to a hybrid of pizza and wings (Charles' Red Hot Pie). Toss in an ocean of world-class beers - 16 are on tap - and a hip and fun ambience, and it's obvious why YBP captured this award.
