IMG_1632After pizza at Flatbread Company in Portsmouth, I’m in need for something sweet. The whoopie pies at Moxy fit the bill. Supposedly a customer favorite, they are not my cup of tea. The filling reminded me of a whipped version of Oreo cream filling (this may be a personal issue, I hate the cream in Oreos). However, the little pot of chocolate they serve the pies with is fantastic! Drizzling it over the pies causes it to harden, textural win! The bartender, Neal, was incredibly welcoming and did not judge us for only ordering dessert (which sometimes happens). I’ll definitely be back for dinner!

Otto Pizza – Brookline

I finally tried Otto! It was totally jammed on a Sunday night. We had a large Apple, Bacon and Red Onion pizza with red sauce and a great pinot noir from 14 Hands. For dessert, mini whoopie pies stuffed with vanilla ice cream. Everything was lovely and I’ll be back! Next time, I’m ordering two small pizzas to share instead of a large so I can try more flavors. I love that you can sit at the bar and order a drink and a slice if you can’t commit to a whole pie. A perfect option before or after a movie at Coolidge Corner Theatre.
