With a team that includes the owners of a local-burger favorite (Juan and Katie Padro of Highland Tap & Burger) and acclaimed former Squeaky Bean chef Max MacKissock, expectations were high and, well, they've definitely delivered. From elegant antipasti like the grilled octopus to house made pastas, hearty mains and flawless wood fired pizzas, every dish is impressive. Order one of their spritzes (try the grapefruit basil) with house made limoncellos and relax. You made the right decision coming here.
Bar Dough has been packing the house since it opened in 2015. It has everything you want from an Italian restaurant: a killer collection of salty, cured meats to get you started; the most perfectly charred wood-fired pizzas topped with delicacies like hen of the woods mushrooms, prosciutto, and fresno chiles; freshly made pastas loaded up with whatever flavor combination—spicy! creamy! seafood-y!—you’re in the mood for; and a wine and cocktail list that makes spending an hour or several here a pleasure.
