Big City Tavern is located in the Boca Center. Those of us that have been here long enough remember this location as the Crocker Center. After winning a $50.00 gift certificate, we decided to embark on a journey to eat there.
While the others in my party were comtemplating on what to eat, I noticed on the bottom of the page that they had a pizza section. Its choice of placement was almost univiting, but if there is pizza on the menu I have to try it. Big City Tavern is not known as a “pizza place” so I wasn’t expecting much. When the pizza arrived I was amazed at its presentation. It looked beautiful, with the cheese all melty and gooey.
My first bite wasn’t great, but certainly not terrible. It reminded me of a time in college at a bar when I met what appeared to be this incredible looking chick, based upon the shadow of her body, and ended up getting into her building and seeing what she really looked like. Didn’t stop me from having fun, but the packaging was a bit off. Moral of the story… pizza doesn’t always taste as good as it looks. After seeing this pizza on the table, I thought it would be much better then it was
Big City Tavern had the perfect blend of sauce to cheese for me. The cheese had a wonderful taste to it. The crust was the issue. It did not taste like a good crispy pizza crust. Holding the pizza to my mouth took two hands to keep it from falling over. I would suggest baking your pizzas for at least 2 full minutes more, and possibly try using a new dough recipe. I will give Big City Tavern in Boca Raton 4 out of 8 slices.
