Happy Hour Review - Sette Pizza
I know that Sette Pizza (7 N 23rd St) is not a new place, but feel like it is a hidden gem. The cozy patio is the perfect place to catch up with friends when the weather is nice and their menu is a great mix of fare for a casual dining experience. They have different specials every night of the week and a regular happy hour deal. Monday through Friday they offer $2 off appetizers, bottled beer and wine from 4-7pm. We took advantage an ordered the Warm Crab Dip to share (regularly $8.50/$6.50 at happy hour) and split the Pulled Chicken Sandwich ($8.95). Coming from Annapolis, this crab dip gets my Marylander stamp of approval. The Pulled Chicken had a nice heat to it with Jamaican jerk seasonings, tomatoes, garlic aioli, carmelized fennel and onions. The house made flat bread, made this an exceptional sandwich that was plenty for the two of us after the decadent crab dip.
Even though the food is tasty, I do not go there for the eats. I go there for the Martini list! I wanted to share a few of my favorites here, but I could only narrow it down to six. That should tell you something about the quality of these mixers. The best way to do the Martinis (if you are not germ-a-phobic) is have everyone order a different one so that you can sample as many as possible. I wish that they would have an actual Martini sampler. I would be all over it. These are ranked in order from absolute favorite to regular favorite.
Pink Panther - Watermelon vodka, cranberry juice and sweet and sour
(also my husband’s favorite because he is not afraid of a fruity cocktail)
Grape Crush – Grape vodka, raspberry liqeur, sour and sprite
Wild Berry – Blueberry vodka, pomegranate liqueur, sweet and sour with sunken blue curaco
Flirtini – Raspberry vodka, crème de cassis and pineapple
Sunsettini –citrus vodka, triple sec, sour, grenadine and rimmed with sugar
Peartini – Pear vodka, licor 43, pineapple juice and a splash of sour
If Martinis aren’t your thing, they do have a nice beer selection (by the bottle only) and wines by the glass at reasonable prices. I like a place that keeps it interesting with different offerings each day. Check out one of their nightly specials from 5-9pm.
Margherita Mondays - $3 House Margaritas and $7 Margherita pizzas
Wine Tuesday - Half Price on all wine bottles
Wine Glass Wednesday - $2 off all wines by the glass
Church Hill Thursday - Half price on all beer and $9 Church Hill Pizzas
Sunday Date Night - Share an appetizer, salad, pizza and dessert for $25.95
