I’ve heard Cash Rules Everything Around Me, and even been to C.R.E.A.M. (Cookies Rule Everything Around Me) in SF but I was superrrrrrrrrrrr excited to try the brand new, much anticipated: PIZZA / Rules / Everything / Around / Me!


Perfect day to sit outside and enjoy the summer ambiance… there was an exciting 10 minutes ogling the feud between Trimet/ angry bus riders, and a taxi sitting on the corner. There was some yelling and threats made– taxi driver doesn’t care. Even our host got pulled into the fray. The bus driver finally decided to use common sense and pass the immovable taxi.


On first inspection of the menu there were definitely pies that sounded good, but everything had just one aspect to it that I did not care for. It appeared to be rational combinations and then a twist: let’s throw this weird thing in there to be “innovative” and hip Portland. After being walked through our menu by our really awesome host we still needed more time. We were all so hungry, we got the Meatball (Appetizers called Hook on this menu) which had an Amish butter polenta, arrabbiata, fried shallots, and parmesan. It was really scrumptious 🙂 One meatball for each of us and it was a good thing too, that Rootbeer Flip drink was stiff!


Ended up trying the KALE pie (Entree AKA Chorus): Lardo, smoked mozzarella, onion, honey, chili ($17). Yes, that’s right HONEY. I’m not normally one to mix savory and super sweet on my dinner plate and this was (in the end) no different.

Woodfired pizza? Great. Flaky crust: awesome. Burnt flaky crust, no thanks!


This is no photoshop trickery, and no filters have been applied. Presentation is definitely a part of it, black has never been that appetizing to me. I will say that I thought the kale on top was tasty. But when I go out for pizza do I want a salad on the side? Heck no! Do I want it on my pizza dripping with honey? NO–
Will I be back? Honestly, probably not. Service a little slow, prices a bit much for a so-so pizza.
