Trying a slice of pizza is never a problem, so I headed down there a few days ago in the mid-afternoon.
This slice of Margherita at Table 87 reminded me very much of that pizza. I'm not saying it was quite as good - it wasn't - but it was still great: it had the same sweet tomato sauce, high-quality cheese and fresh basil. The crust was wonderful: just pliable enough to fold if you want, but strong enough to hold all the toppings if, like me, you prefer not to fold your slice.
Unlike another place I wrote about last week, the employee at Table 87 was very friendly. He asked me how the slice was when I was halfway done and seemed genuinely happy when I told him it was delicious. I thanked him when I threw away my paper plate and he responded by saying "Thank you sir, have a nice day."
Table 87 probably won't become my go-to place when I want to get a whole pie, but I will absolutely be stopping back in when I want a slice or two.
