Back at the Nook, the nicely curated menu focuses on pizzas, charcuterie, salads, starters and desserts, all prepared in the kitchen Nook shares with Northside Kitchenette. Among the appetizers, we recommend the goat cheese- stuffed dates with bacon jam, as well as the Burrata Bolognese, a super-savory dish that hits all the right notes with an umami-rich explosion of roasted tomatoes and spicy sausage. Of the pizza selections, we sampled the outstanding signature "Nook" with fennel sausage, smoked bacon and red wine-braised mushrooms; and the excellent "Mean Green" with creamy spinach, smoked chicken and a nice flavor punch of house-pickled jalapeños. We were delighted to discover that these crusty, medium-thickness pies travel and reheat exceedingly well, making carrying out any leftovers a realistic option. As is the case with all the Northside restaurants, the wine list is concise and well-vetted with food-friendly, attractively priced choices you won't find at the average grocery store. e house red and white are both available by the carafe. I can think of few more pleasant ways to spend an evening than at the Nook with a couple of friends, a couple of pizzas and a couple glasses of rosé. It would seem that the friendly little space next to the laundromat has finally found its true purpose. sl 6513 N. College Ave., 317.253.0450, nooknorthside.com.
