⇢ Dine Out Maine: A slab at Slab is a slice of heaven

⇢ Addictive Sicilian slab plus incredible beer & cocktail menu at Slab, Portland

⇢ First look: Slab — the pizza palace that sizzles

The Slab — that pillowy Sicilian pizza once available only at Miccuci Market — is back. And it now has its own restaurant, the creation of chef Jason Loring (of Nosh Kitchen Bar) and Stephen Lanzalotta, who made the iconic pie famous in the first place. Packed from the day it opened, Slab offers huge portions of well-made dishes, including sandwiches and salads as well as the pizzas, served on wooden boards or in paper boats. Be sure to check the blackboards or ask about the day’s specials – and don’t skimp on dessert: The baci (chocolate) and ricciarelli (almond) cookies are extra rich and satisfying. An enormous outdoor patio is the place to be on a summer night. 4 STARS, NOV. 23, 2014
