Cactus Club Cafe alumni Sean and Chris Holland, along with La Bodega’s Paul Rivas, pooled their collective industry expertise to launch this Yaletown hotspot where pizza is the house specialty. Certainly not authentic—even the menu boldly declares ‘Not From Naples’— but tasty nonetheless with an inventive slate of toppings. Case in point: the Yaletown pie, with albacore tuna, red and green onion, avocado, cilantro, and spicy aioli. Small plates are hit-and-miss, but stacked short ribs in a hoisin and tamarind marinade, and steelhead salmon ceviche with ponzu aioli, earn a thumbs-up. Seven craft beers on tap and a lineup of cocktails lubricate any evening’s festivities. Raucous and packed to the gills on Friday and Saturday nights, the vibe is considerably more chill during the week.
