On a chilly November evening, Yelp gathered Elites together to celebrate pizza at Yelp's Pizza Mind Elite Event! Amazing pizza, at that. With an award-winning chef who is truly passionate about the pie, Federal Hill Pizza served up some of the most delicious food this group has ever had. Federal Hill Pizza "was cozy, the service was welcoming and the food…man, the food was a fantastic. The pizza's crust was unlike anything" Kisha T's ever had – "the crunch of a thin crust and the fluffiness of a deep dish all in one!""There was a great crowd of people at the event, and the best part of the night" for Jennifer E was when Chef Billy Manzo "came out to give us all a lesson on pizza and how it differs from region to region in Italy." Karen S adds, "he knows what he is doing and it shows in the pizza: nice crispy edges, a delicious sauce and a generous amount of toppings."Jaclyn P thought the Woodstock Inn Autumn Ale, with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and toasted caramel "was amazing." Jason P "very much enjoyed the house Lager 94, and when" he asked who brewed the lager for the the restaurant, was told "it's a secret." Christina V's "first instinct was to go with the autumn brew, but the bartender was helpful and suggested the lighter beer that was fruitier in taste," the Zangari Wandering Star Belgian-style Wit beer."Let's see… Full moon, empty stomach, and an Elite pizza event." For Justin B, these are the "perfect ingredients for a great time. Thank you Billy and Federal Hill Pizza for giving us Yelpers so much attention and so much food, and for making pizza the way it was meant to be." And thank you to Brad Smith for capturing our evening so beautifully in photos, as always!
Until next time, my yelpers… SYOY!
