New Haven Pizza 101: It's apizza. Say it "uh pizz." Say the cheese "mootz-uh-rell-ah" or "mootz," but only if you're from here. If you're not, say "cheese." If you don't say "cheese," they'll leave it off.
Modern Apizza opened in the 1930s. BAR popped up in the 90s. BAR feels like a brewpub. (It is.) Modern feels like a pizza place. Pizzas were comparably delicious Neopolitan-style pies. We gave BAR a slightly higher score, but they were nearly identical. BAR had slightly less grease, less slice-flop.
