Azu

Small plates (tomato-and-basil-stuffed artichokes; smoked salmon on baguette) make up the menu at this diminutive tapas bar inspired by chef Laurel Moore’s travels in Spain.

The pizza bakery sells to the West Coast’s Whole Foods. Friday through Sunday, it morphs into a restaurant and serves the pies fresh. Look for toppings like wild chanterelles and nettles.
