Recently, we went to The Parlor because my mom was running a half marathon and she wanted carbs before the race. The Parlor is a pizza place in Dobbs Ferry. It's a very unique pizza place because the pizza is made in a wood fire oven. We were sitting at a wooden table so if felt like a picnic. Next to the oven, they were projecting a movie onto the wall which was cool because usually it is on a screen. Another cool thing about The Parlor is that you get to cut your own pizzas with scissors that they give you instead of having them cut the pizza for you. Before we had pizzas, we had two appetizers. We had a brussels sprout salad that had fried brussels sprouts, rice krispies, chili honey, and parmigiano in it. It was crunchy because of the brussels sprouts and the rice krispies. I didn't even know it had parmigiano in it. All those those ingredients together taste heavenly. Next we had...wait for it....wait for it...wood fired oysters! The oysters were smeared with brown butter and had lemon and pickled parsley on top. When I had the oyster, the lemon and parsley hit my mouth and the brown butter was awesome + awesome = totally awesome (I'm a math and food expert). For the entrees, we had three pizzas. First we had the special which was an "After Easter" egg-sausage pizza. Let's talk about this pizza - it was yolky from the egg which made it taste like breakfast. The sausage was beyond good. The crust, I can't even begin to explain. It's crunchy because it's wood fired. Awesomely fantastic. It was my favorite one. Next we had a ramps pizza. Ramps are just like spinach but garlicky. I thought it was OK. The ramps were good but I didn't like the cheese that was on it. The last pizza we had was a margarita pizza with meatballs on it which was delicious. The meatballs were nice and soft. Last, we had dessert. My dad and I shared a salted caramel panna cotta with a bacon crumble on top. It was really good. The caramel was creamy and the bacon crumble was delicious. It was a good experience and I want to go again!
