Pizza in the D
After much success at Fort Street Galley last year, the pizzeria, Michigan & Trumbull, is finally in its permanent home at 1441 W. Elizabeth Street, Detroit and opened in late January. The restaurant brings back two Michigan natives, Kristen Calverley and Nate Peck, who were serving the city of Pittsburgh the D’s infamous pizza before returning home. So far, Calverley said the most surprising thing is how much people have been loving their selections of sides, which have both roasted and fried sections on the menu, and the most popular pizza they have been serving has been the Long Drive Home, topped with a vodka sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, sausage, and banana peppers. They’ve recently acquired a liquor license, so a full bar menu is now available to quench that pizza thirst.
