In April, news broke that chef Michael Leviton and the team behind Kendall Square's Area Four — home to a very excellent bacon pretzel nugget, among other savories — would open a straight-up pizza place in Somerville. That day is nearly here: Urban Daddy has a slideshow capturing the sparse beauty of A4 Pizzeria. It's slated to open the first week of July at 445 Somerville Ave. Update: Reps for the restaurant tell us they're "hoping for a July opening." Leviton tells us that the restaurant will sell nothing but pizza and antipasti (no pretzel nuggets, sorry). Most interesting to us: The pizzeria is on a pretty quiet stretch of Somerville Avenue, food-wise. But, since Urban Daddy notes a profusion of barrel whiskey, local pints, and Fat Boys LPs adorning the walls (always an interesting decorative choice), that might not be the case much longer. Stay tuned for a definite opening date.
