Stil Studio is great for yoga, but the location in Legacy Place is even better for Starving Yogi’s other favorite pastime… dinner! There’s usually a coin toss between our two favorites, Legal Seafood or Wicked Pizza, and today’s stop was Wicked.
The restaurant is located in the back end of the plaza, near the movie theater and a couple other restaurants. The biggest draw for us (besides the pizza) is the spacious, shaded patio where it’s usually relatively easy to score a table given our typically early dinner time. The restaurant itself is pretty big and includes a large bar area with a few TVs for sports fans. Despite the large bar area, the atmosphere is relatively tame, especially in comparison to its more bumpin’ neighboring restaurants. Unlike some of our other favorite restaurants in this blog, Wicked is slightly more casual given the mall location.
Ok, now let’s talk about the good stuff… Wicked is both a restaurant and wine bar and as you might imagine, the wine list doesn’t disappoint. There’s a wide selection of wines available by the glass, decanter or bottle, with bottle prices ranging from $20-$50. Starving Yogis typically default to a glass of sauvignon blanc, because that’s the classy pairing for pizza… obv.
A few notes about the menu before we get into the specifics: There is an extensive gluten free menu, including the option to make any pizza gluten free. Wicked also uses organic and/or locally sourced produce, cheese and meat as available. Starving Yogis have tried a number of appetizers including the falafel fritters (6.95) and buttermilk ranch wings ($10.50), but we most often start by splitting one of the entrée salads as an appetizer. Our favorite is the organic salmon and citrus salad ($17.65). The salad comes with a large salmon fillet over organic greens with oranges, candied pecans and dried cherries. There’s also slice of warm breaded goat cheese (so, so good) and small fried potatoes (a little random, but also so, so good!). The dressing is a citrus yogurt in just the right amount to add some flavor without leaving dressing puddles in the bowl.
It’s somewhat embarrassing to admit, but we have only tried one pizza here… This is not to say we don’t always order pizza – because we do – we just can’t manage to try something besides the fig and prosciutto pizza ($18.50). The pizza comes on the typical soft, semi-thin crust and is made with Prosciutto de Parma, Fontina cheese, fig puree, baby arugula, diced apricots and a balsamic glaze. It’s amazing, and since there’s arugula on the pizza, it’s practically a salad! =) Leftovers are pretty tasty so if you’re torn between options it might just be worth it to try two pizzas (we saw a couple do it last time we were there – it happens).
It’s tough to go wrong with dessert here. Starving Yogis love the house made mini donuts with crème anglaise and chocolate dipping sauces ($6.95). Another option (which we’ve done a few times) is to hit up JP Licks if you are feeling fro yo or ice cream. A bonus to this is you can pose with a life-like cow statue while holding your frozen treat.
Finally, once you’re full of pizza and donuts (or JP Licks), we recommend a couple laps around Legacy Place to help digest before trying to sit down in your car… the elastic waistband on those yoga pants will really come in handy on a Wicked night.
- Parking can be a little bit of a pain – if it’s a busy night you might want to head for the garage as there’s an exit/stairway on the corner right across the street from the restaurant.
