I’d heard a lot about “Bricks” and Its gourmet pizzas.
However, I’d had an awful experience with these peculiar pizzas years ago in another restaurant. I went for a Margherita and I was welcomed by harsh waiters, no flexibility in doing small changes to pizzas on the menu and some other unpleasant behaviors.
So I was frightened. But I was also curious to give “gourmet pizzerias” another chance.
Everyone was welcoming, warm and discreet at the same time. The waiter guided me through the menu explaining the origin of special ingredients (I finally learned that Cantabrian anchovies have bigger fillets and greater taste).
I chose one “tapas” to tickle my stomach: Bufala Mozzarella Nighiri with Cantabrian Anchovies and Caramelised red onion – the right amount of food to please but not enough to stuff you before eating your main course.
There is a great choice of regular pizzas and a monthly list of gourmet ones. This month I found some really great products:
For example, one pizza with asparagus, lardo (like bacon but not smoked and made with almost only pork fat and herbs) and pecorino (sheep milk cheese).
It was seasonal, delicate but savory at the same time.
Quite a blast.
There are also a lot of other pizzas (jamon serrano, fresh fruit just to mention some other ingredients).
The atmosphere is modern but romantic. It’s also affordable but do not expect a regular pizza price if you choose a gourmet one.
You need to try It.
