Prosciutto e Rucola

Spacca Napoli, Chicago 

The prosciutto and arugula pizza at Spacca Napoli is a flavor all its own. The chewy crust with charred bubbles balance perfectly with the fresh bitter arugula and sweet prosciutto crudo. The magic that pulls these flavors in to an experience all its own is the smokiness from the wood-fired oven.

Crab Sandwich and Clam Chowder

Spud Point Crab Company, Bodega Bay, Calif.

What’s better than eating crab sandwiches across from the boats that pull them in? The Dungeness crab sandwich is worth a trip and the chowder is worth coming back again the next day. The flavor of the Dungeness crab is so sweet, rich, and deep that you will fight yourself to not wait in line for another taste. The sandwich is a lesson in simplicity and restraint. Quality ingredients showcased in their best light.
