This modern, Mediterranean-inspired bistro in the heart of Rhinebeck has taken thin crust to a new level. Skinny pizzas they call “Skizzas” are characterized by a crispy crust that’s snappy enough to hold rich toppings — like a velvety ricotta, roasted-garlic spread — as well as the most delicate ones — like seasonal shaved pears. Take a load off with a glass of wine outside at one of the café-style tables, and enjoy the village’s classy, historic culture buzzing around you. Celiac or wheat-sensitive eaters needn’t fear here, either; gluten-free Skizzas are available.
