So much more than a pizza joint. The big tiled oven in the corner is eye-catching and the pizzas are terrific, but Chef Mike Richey’s little kitchen at Fireside on Regent turns out superlatives in every department, from salads to soft-serve, proving that a great restaurant doesn’t have to be big, pretentious or humorless. In fact, this great restaurant is as welcoming as a soda fountain.
