When it comes to ordering takeout, I love a meal deal. And the one I’ve turned to time and again to liven up sad quarantine birthdays and average Tuesday nights is this pizza, ice cream, salad, and wine package. It’s a parade of simple pleasures done extremely well that feeds and waters up to four people for $68.

Antico opened in mid-2019, but was really just hitting its stride when the first lockdown went into effect. Chad Colby nimbly pivoted from pasta to foccacia pizzas, which the restaurant had never served before. The rectangular pies loudly strike both fluffy and crispy pleasure centers. Hand-cranked ice creams created by former pastry chef Brad Ray are some of the best in the city. The breadcrumb-dusted Caesar is more than a veggie afterthought, and the wines are fun and funky. No matter what the state of the world, pizza and ice cream make for a good night.
