The Upper Crust
The original Upper Crust location exudes the charm and warmth of Beacon Hill's lantern-lined streets and passageways. Nestled in one of Boston's most well-known historical areas, Charles Street was the perfect choice for Founder Jordan Tobins when he founded the location, which became an instant neighborhood hit. It wasn't long before the rest of Boston came calling.
Although my son-in-law and especially my daughter may disagree, I was not terribly impressed with Upper Crust Pizza. My complaints are two-fold. First of all, I am not fond of community seating -- which is all that's available. There is one large table that seats perhaps 12 people, and counter seating for about 8. There's also a steady stream of take-out customers that make things even more crowded. Secondly, while the pizza tastes wonderful and all the ingredients are fresh, the entire pizza is razor thin. Thus, it would take 3 or 4 slices of Upper Crust pizza to equal the volume of one slice of pizza from other places. We ordered a large pizza for four of us (2 slices each), and I thought I was going to have to stop for more food within 15 minutes of finishing.
So, the bottom line, I guess, is that Upper Crust is less interested in quantity and more interested in quality. The quantity was far below average, but the quality was above average, leading to an average review.
If you visit Boston and love thin-crust pizza, then you *must* check out The Upper Crust, which is located in the Beacon Hill area of Boston. If you think you've tasted gourmet pizza, then you're in for a big surprise. The crust is thin and crisp; the sauce is a perfect blend of spices and herbs, and they sprinkle the right amount of cheese without overdoing it. My suggestion: the garlic chicken pizza. It's so good, it'll turn you into a repeat customer. The food here is absolutely yummy, but I often have to put myself in check and remind myself not to go crazy. One slice too many will cost you your figure dearly, so proceed with caution and enjoy!
