Katie's Pizza & Pasta

Normally I try to follow the unwritten rule of not writing about a place that has just opened but I am hoping that it's OK to break the rule if you think the food is just fantastic!

And since this is Katie's second location, it's not totally "brand new", but I was excited to try Katie's pasta, which is new at this location.
 
I was thrilled to see several burrata listed on the menu and started my lunch with the Mixed Wood Mushroom Burrata, all lightly covered with a balsamic dressing. 
 
Then I tried the artichoke salad and the artichokes looked just like flowers amongst all the feta cheese and greens. It was almost too pretty to eat and I am kicking myself for not taking a picture of it.
 
Those two together were probably enough for a proper lunch, but I wasn't done yet. The Tagliatelle with prawns, mussels, clams, monkfish, and chili peppers caught my attention. The noodles were a dark color and had a bite at the end, catching me off guard, from the chili peppers mixed in.

My coworker was also kind enough to share a bite of his cured meat pizza. If you love meat on every inch of your pizza, this is for you!
 
The inside of the space is just beautiful. Different tables and chairs, paper lamp shades, living walls, and an open kitchen. What a wonderful spot!
