When I told her about the new restaurants (she has a young baby, lunch in the big city isn't high on the to-do list :) Proof opened a couple of years ago) by Carly Groben in downtown, she got excited about Flour and off we went!
Arriving in Flour at 12:30, it was pretty busy. The setup of the restaurant is large tables and benches, so you grab a spot when you can next to strangers (new friends!).
At the counter, you can see all of the freshly made pizzas and the azucar breads. When I've done previous reading about the restaurant, there has always been a veggie pizza option, but when I walked in, there was not (by the end of the meal, there was a blue cheese pizza option though). Mushroom Pepperoni, BBQ Chicken, Clams and (something...). Slightly disappointed, I moved over to the azucar breads. One option was the slightly sweet bread topped with hummous, cucumbers, roasted red peppers, brie cheese and some hearty leafy green lettuce. Yum!
I was so glad that there wasn't a veggie pizza because I otherwise would have skipped over the azucar breads!
We managed to find some seats (and a spot for the 8mos old in a highchair-so happy they had one!). Wait was pretty short and food was out. Delicious! The slight sweetness of the bread worked great with the hummous and brie. There was plenty of food, but I wonder if I should have gotten a salad. I'm on a lettuce kick right now.
I wish I'd taken a picture, because I'm not sure that bread is the right word. Imagine a long ciabatta bread and the stuff piled on top. It wasn't a sandwich and yet, not really a pizza.
Overall, I give Flour a big yes! I bet if I had waited, they could have given me a veggie pizza, but I was very happy with my bread. I also must say they were great with the little one; granted, she is wonderful (no crying or screaming) but everyone was all smiles and helpful with the highchair which made lunch a lot easier!
