Austin’s pizza renaissance continues with the addition of Bridget Dunlap’s newest venture Burn Pizza + Bar to east 6th. One of the more refreshing aspects of the pizzeria is how well it fits in with the neighborhood, from its casual setting to its approachable dishes and low prices. It’s the perfect spot to drop in with friends for a beer and a slice.

The Fried Artichoke is served on a block of wood with the restaurant's logo burned into it.

Kick things off with a starter plate. We tried the delicious Fried Artichoke, but the Arancini (a fried rice ball stuffed with mozzarella and pea puree) sounds equally as appetizing.

Part of Burn’s appeal is its famous purveyor, and the menu playfully pays homage to its sister spots. Some of the original pizzas include the 96er (topped with broccoli and sausage), the Clive (topped with nduja, fontina, mozzarella, and truffle oil), and the Lustre Pearl (topped with chicory, olive, chile, and mozzarella). During our visit we tried the peppery Devil, which is topped with spicy salami, tomato, and mozzarella.

While the menu is pretty minimal, it does offer a few pasta and entree dishes. Some standouts include the Pappardelle (featuring wild boar sausage, egg pasta, and rosemary) and the Beef Cheek (prepared Roman style with potato puree and celery-tomato sauce). Burn has also launched a lunch time menu which includes more soups, salads and paninis.

The diner’s interior is an eclectic mix of industrial and cozy dive bar. There are a few booths with luxurious tufted leather seats contrasting with heavy metal inspired murals of howling wolves and flames. When the weather becomes more reliable, you can also take advantage of the patio area, which was not enclosed or covered during our visit. 

This weekend, make your way to Burn for some casual Italian cuisine!
