The creators of Japanese-made-accessible Blue C Sushi and Boom Noodle have given us the crowd-pleasing Elemental, a slammed, shiny joint bringing fire-bubbled, thin-but-pillowy-crusted pizza to the U Village hordes. We’d rather the crusts had bit more oil, but we do like that pies this ambitious have come to the heart of familyville—check the pizza tossers—and we really like the caprese salads, the BBQ-pulled-pork pie, and the brightly bitter sausage-rapini topping.
