Among the swankiest of the wood-fired pizzerias in town is Frasca, with arches reminiscent of a Tuscan wine cellar, sexy red leather banquettes and wallpaper of bare branches climbing up the curved walls. The cavernous space is packed to conversation-inhibiting capacity with twentysomethings chomping on chewy thin-crust pizzas—we like the fennel sausage, onion and mozz Capone—and tossing back reasonably priced wines.
