Local: Pizzeria Toro (@pizzeriatoro) - Durham, NC

Had the chance to check out this great spot in downtown Durham to celebrate Emily's first publication.

We walked in on a Wednesday evening to find the place bumpin'! There was a 30-45 minute wait at 7:30 at night and that seemed pretty conservative. The nice lady at the door sent us over to the bar for some amazing drinks though, and I highly recommend their signature drinks.

We ordered 2 appetizers and 4 pizzas between the 4 of us and that was more than plenty. Actually, it would have been fine with 2 apps and 2 pizzas.

The style here is wood fire oven done the right way with really fresh ingredients. We had the egg, goat sausage, the pistachio and onion (thanks to a twitter recommendations), and the buffalo mozz. and the stand out was for me was the egg.

All in all I can't wait to go back to this spot and proud that its in Durham.
