Parlor Pizza Joint launched in Des Moines' Beaverdale neighborhood earlier this month, and I went to check it out on opening night.

What I ate: I started with an order of chickpea fritters ($8) and finished with a "You're So Vain" Detroit-style pizza ($16.50).

Thought bubble: Worthy of your time, especially if you're a fan of thick-crust pizza.

  • The menu has lots of creative options, and the $3 pizza slice happy hour deal offered daily, between 2-5pm, is an affordable way to try a few of them.

Open: Wednesday-Thursday, 2-11pm; Friday-Saturday, 11am-midnight; Sunday, 11am-8pm.
