Blaze Pizza
By Brett Anderson

611 O'Keefe Ave., New Orleans, 504.208.1028

The first local location of this growing fast-casual chain landed in the South Market District last year. It feels very much like a restaurant conceived in a boardroom. (Blaze was started by the founders of Wetzel's Pretzels, and Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner is one of its investors.)

Blaze is essentially a Neopolitan pizza place married to a Chipotle. The pizzas, developed by chef Bradford Kent of Olio Pizzeria & Café in Los Angeles, are also remarkably consistent: crisp from center-to-edge, with toppings applied sparingly, as they should be.
