This past weekend, while in San Francisco, I had the opportunity to eat at Mozzeria, a Deaf owned pizzeria. The restaurant was beautiful, the pizza delectable, and the service lovely.
I went with 3 other people; my partner who knows basic ASL, and my 2 friends who know none. The two servers were hearing, and took our orders. We sat at the bar, since there were no tables, and watched the two chefs made pizzas. They have this enormous oven that runs at 800+degrees, and has to constantly be tended.
We ordered a margherita pizza, and an asparagus blue cheese pizza. They baked ultra fast, and we watched the workers move the pizzas through the different parts of the oven to cook properly.
The prices were excellent and fair, and we had a really good time. There was a painting by Nancy Rourke, and the staff had several iPads which they used to take orders when we came back the next day.
Perhaps the best part, though, was seeing Terrylene eating next to us, and being able to tell her how much her poetry has touched me, and how great her show in San Diego was.
Definitely a spot to stop next S.F. trip!
