Gretchen Kurtz had good luck with the pizzas at Lucky Pie Pizza & Tap House, which opened this past winter in (part of) the former home of Dixons and is reviewed this week. But a diner who's eaten at the Lucky Pie in Louisville wasn't as impressed with the cheesy original.
Interesting, the pizza in the picture looks nothing whatsoever like the pies I've had at Lucky Pie's Louisville location. Those pies are flat, a bit greasy, very chewy and have (in my opinion) way too much cheese applied, to the point where it glops off onto the plate when you pick up a slice. Not terrible - they seem to be trying, and the ingredients are good - but I just can't get enthusiastic about them. I also found their "roasted vegetable plate" to be pretty insulting -- something like $10 for barely-cooked bell peppers and red onion, with a scant couple of pieces of still-chewy fennel. Maybe the Lodo location has these execution issues better worked out.
Did LoDo get lucky with Lucky Pie, even if Louisville didn't? Post your thoughts below.
