Pauline's Pizza

Cheap Date: Pauline's Wine Bar

Long before there was a fancy pizzeria on every block, there was Pauline’s, which opened in 1985 and was among the first places to serve “gourmet” pies topped with vegetables the owners grew themselves. Now, 20-some years later, the operation has expanded modestly to include a wine bar located in the alley right around the corner. Though the narrow entryway promises an underground vibe similar to Hôtel Biron, the décor within is more evocative of a Marin County home, circa early ’90s—a mash-up of gaudy tile, several paint colors and bright track lighting.
