City Slice brings East Coast flavors to BR pizza
What does the perfect combination of local pride, seasoned travels and restaurant skills produce? Baton Rouge, welcome to City Slice: the second act to owner Stephen Hightower’s City Pork. The new restaurant is located on 164 W. Chimes Street near LSU and features New Haven-inspired whole pizzas, pizza by the slice, beer on tap and numerous other unique dishes with a flavor that Baton Rouge has yet to taste.
The goal is tradition, not trendy, Hightower said. A trip to the northeast ten years ago was the driving force behind City Slice and the inspiration for a New Haven-inspired palette.
“I’ve always remembered that flavor. New Haven is famous for the white clam sauce, so that is [exciting to] incorporate.”
