Crazy casual Italian cafe crafts Chicago-style pizza and gorgantuan portions of pasta. Among its all-American offerings: The (first) President Bush pizza, a pie topped with artichoke hearts, pepperoni, Canadian (WTF?) bacon, Italian (again, we say WTF?) sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onion and black olives. Tasty, if a little un-American. At Fuzzy's, tables fill up with loud families and even-louder little league teams. Craving conversation? Get your pizza to go.
Vibe: A kids' birthday party where all the youngsters are in the backyard unsupervised and all the grownups are in the living room sipping martinis.
Alison Cook says: Fuzzy's makes its own sauce, its own dough and piles on the fixings. Choose New York-style thin crust or Chicago-style deep pan. Whole-wheat crust is available. Owner Fuzzy Hajjar has several other locations, but Fuzzy fans believe the original Antoine location is the best.
