For my first visit to Hugo & Sons, just a short walk from my apartment, we met my parents for brunch. Although the zucchini frittata and the roasted eggplant both sounded good, I only had eyes for the pizza. I got a Hugo, basically your classic Margherita, and it was incredible. A light and crispy crust, good sauce, and incredibly creamy fior di latte mozzarella all made for something greater than the sum of its parts and one of the best pizzas I’ve had in a while. I ate it so quickly I forgot to top it with some of the house chili oil. Oh well, there’s always next time.
