Twin Cities Daily Planet's Jeremy Iggers headed to Pig Ate My Pizza—the new pizza spot from the folks behind Travail—on only its third day open. He only had to wait 15 minutes for a table (noteworthy news in itself), and he came away "impressed" by the pizzeria, which, according to Iggers, has a lot of the same "what-are-these-guys-smoking panache" as Travail while also being "a bit more accessible and family-friendly."
Iggers had the Mussels in Brussels pizza—topped with mussels, brussel sprouts, and chorizo—which "sounds weird but worked beautifully." The accompanying cup of mussel broth (for dipping the crust) was an "inspired" idea, a small plate of salt and pepper pork nuggets was "intensely flavorful," the housemade fettuccine was "perfectly al dente," and the banana split bomb—a liquid nitrogen take on the classic—"brought to mind the mad-scientist Travail of old."
