Stephen Hightower, owner of City Pork restaurants, is painting the town—or at least his new restaurant—red. The newest tenant of the LSU North Gates is City Slice Pints & Pies, a bright red pizza joint offering New Haven-inspired pizza and a whole lot more.
Hightower describes City Slice as a “collections of travels,” focusing on popular dishes from places like Chicago and New York. A New Haven, Connecticut-inspired pizza is the main attraction. The pizzas are distinguished by an imperfectly round, hand-tossed thin crust. Chefs use a lighter hand with melting cheeses and finish off the pizzas with unique toppings. The restaurant offers around eight specialty pizza combinations, as well as a build-your-own pizza option.
