    In the days of $45 pastry stout bottles, that sure is nice to see a company be reasonable.

    That's quite reassuring. I get the cost of business in SF and all that, but those were possibly pound-for-pound the most expensive pizzas in the city. Even the $2-lower prices are eyebrow-raising but it's at least less insane. Def won't be eating their regularly, but happy about CHOP being an option now. Might have to break this no eating carbs nonsense next week and hit it up.

    The brussels sprouts is where it's at I think, and yeah I agree the pizza is still pricy, especially when there's so many food choices around the area.

    How does their pizza compare to in terms of other pizza joints in the city?

    I thought it was pretty good, better than Square Pie Guys which is the only other Detroit pizza I've had in SF. I think Tony's does that style too but I haven't tried it.
    It was very fluffy and you could tell the ingredients are quality. Think Golden Boy but more charred and less greasy.

    Do you think it's better than Golden Boy? Cause Golden Boy is my... golden standard.

    I thought the execution was a bit better but Golden Boy holds a special place in my heart. I also have to try all of the flavors to compare since there's a serious lack of clam & garlic at CHOP...

    The crust is basically what makes Golden Boy so good. Also Za's crust is awesome too. Eh... any fucking crust with a cornmeal bottom is really good to me. I really like that texture. The garlic clam is very good.

    And you are usually drunk as fuck when eating Golden Boy. It’s the most delicious thing at that point.

    I love Golden Boy sober too. But that rarely happens

    No hype about the upcoming colab with Great Notion and Toppling Goliath?

    I hope the rain keeps most people away so I don't need to wait in a dumb long line...
