800 Degrees

  • Daily, 11-2 a.m.
800 Degrees, a fast-casual pizzeria concept dreamed up by Umami guru Adam Fleischman, serves up sub-$7 Margheritas in record time. Your unbaked pizza works its way down an assembly line, ready to be paved with a plethora of high-quality toppings: Fra' Mani salami, pickled peppadews, charred broccolini and many more. (Expert tip: Go with fewer than three toppings in order to reduce chances of a soggy pie.) Your customized creation slides into the wood-fired oven just long enough to develop a considerable chewiness, a hint of char underneath, and a soft crust rising just over bubbling patches of molten cheese. Would any Neapolitan connoisseur worth his flour have a few technical critiques? Sure, but there's no argument on this point: The world would be a better place with a few more 800 Degrees outlets around.
