This midtown pizzeria is housed inside seven 40-foot-long shipping containers that are welded together to create an airy, indoor-outdoor restaurant emitting a decidedly hip vibe that might make any Hamilton fan smile, with elk antlers mounted above the kitchen, quotes from Thomas Jefferson on the walls and American history facts written on the table place cards. From brunch hour to bar crawls, diners gather at communal picnic benches with pints of local craft beer to wolf down wood-fired pies, like the popular Southside with roasted pork chorizo or the Ben Franklin Deluxe topped with a sunny-side-up egg. If your tribe has varying taste buds, there are also hearty sandwiches, salads and a dessert menu touting items like an ice cream float with River City root beer. Bonus: Check out the artificial turf bocce ball court for late-night pickup games.
