You're a person of food who thinks a slab of lush, buttery foie gras on fresh-baked brioche is one of mankind's finest achievements. Your significant other is a person of junk who would eat a spare tire if it had enough American cheese and secret sauce on it.
What's a cuisine-challenged couple to eat?
Pizza. Not just any pizza -- Sosta Pizzeria's thin-crust Italian pizza, baked in one of only two pricey Morello Forni pizza ovens in the United States. Washed down with some excellent Italian wine, specially chosen by the Lincoln Road eatery's wine geek-slash-GM, Dragan Savin, to play nice with pizza.
For example, a light and fruity Tasca D'Almerita with the classic Margherita pizza, or the tangy Zenato Valpolicella Superiore with the spicy-hearty capricciosa pie. With pizzas averaging about $15 and wines by the glass $10 or less, both food and junk people can affordably enter into the bonds of holy dining without fear of divorce. You may now feed the bride.
