You could spend the whole day exploring York Blvd in Highland Park. The three-block radius surrounding Town Pizza is a great representation of the forward-thinking/backward-striving hipster ethos – arts and crafts, vintage instruments, vintage/artisan furniture, actual books! But the true indicator of chillness for the neighborhood-of-the-moment has got to be how legit their local pizza spot is.
TOWN Pizza landed in Highland Park with a bang last year, selling out of their pies consistently every day during their initial opening. It was frustrating and encouraging at the same time. The buzz from the customers was ecstatic; a typical verdict would be, “The line was long. But that crust, tho.”
