Birroteca - Baltimore, MD

My friend S and I recently met up at Birroteca restaurant in Baltimore, and it was a fun and delicious brunch at a new (to me) spot!

We started with an appetizer of crisp Brussel sprouts, Coppa, and black garlic aioli.  This was delicious, and the crunchy outside of the chopped Brussel sprouts went really well with the aioli.  

We decided to split two pizzas so we could try two different types. On the left is the Double D, with meatballs, fresh Mozzarella, and basil, and on the right is the Locavore with roasted market vegetables, Pecorino, fresh Mozzarella, and EVOO.  I'm glad that we got a meat-centric simple pizza along with a very vegetable-heavy one, it was a nice balance trying both pizzas out! The pizzas were delicious, and even as we were chatting we couldn't stop shoving the tasty slices in our mouths as quickly as possible, haha. I would definitely come back to have more of their delicious pizza, and maybe try a pasta dish next time!  I hear that it gets pretty packed at dinnertime, but when we were here for brunch it was really quiet - so depending on what sort of environment you're in the mood for, be sure to check Birroteca out if you're in the area!
