It's a pretty ballsy move, opening up a pizza joint half a block down from EVO, one of Charleston's finest pie spots, but that's what the folks at Park Pizza Co. did. The thing is the two restaurants are so dramatically different that they serve two entirely different needs: EVO caters to the gourmet, local-first crowd who are willing to shell out some cash, while Park Pizza is your more traditional delivery joint. Not that all the pies at Park Pizza are traditional. There are certainly some odd ducks here, from the She-Crab (olive oil, cream cheese, mozzarella, crab, tomato, garlic, green onions, parmesan) to the Thai (olive oil, cream cheese, provolone, Thai chicken, broccoli, cilantro, honey-roasted peanuts) to the Seoul Glo, a one-time special topped with Korean barbecued pork and kimchi. But it's the more traditional pies, like the Three Pigs (marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni, salami, pork sausage) and the Envy (pesto, mozzarella, spinach, artichokes, feta), that have won over our taste buds. Also, two big thumbs up to the joint's garlic and herb breadstrips, the monkey bread, and the house salad dressing, a creamy cucumber wasabi concoction that is both soothing and spicy. —Chris Haire, Dish (Summer 2012)
