On Aug. 30, Christine Reid (Red Room, Locavore) opened a new eclectic pizza joint called Cosmic Pizza at 1221 W. Boise Ave., in the space that once housed Chef Roland's Cajun Cuisine.
The formerly Mardi Gras-themed interior got a retro facelift with a smattering of vintage chairs and an old-school videogame console in the corner. The menu continues with a Jetsons-esque space theme, offering creations like the Stardust ($13.25, $17.50, $21.75)—with Italian sausage, sun dried tomatoes, red onion, feta, salami, sunflower seeds and red sauce—or the Galactic Fair ($12, $16, $19.80) with mini corn dogs, chili, red onions and cheddar cheese.
Patrons can also build their own pies from a selection of meats, veggies, sauces and cheeses (including vegan cheese). Though some of The Star Fleet specialty pies can get a bit spendy, the lunch special is a sweet deal with a classic slice and a side salad for $5, served Monday through Friday before 4 p.m. The joint also serves up a selection of microbrews and wine.
