FRANK PEPE PIZZERIA NAPOLETANA
Italian New Haven’s legendary pizzeria serves up savory “tomato pies.” The simple original with or without mozzarella is nothing to be scoffed at, but the menu also extends to signatures like the white clam pizza and the quattro formaggio. Don’t let long lines deter you—this meal is worth a wait. L and D (daily). The Shops at Chestnut Hill, 199 Boylston St., Brookline, 617.964.7373.
