Be still, my heart: Ancora Pizzeria (4508 Freret Street, 504.324.1636) is opening for lunch on Fridays and Saturdays, starting December 2. Plus, Ancora is offering cured meat gift baskets during the holiday season, priced at $40 and $60. Who wouldn’t love a gift basket of salumi? I know I would.
At right is a buffalo mozzarella pie I ate at Ancora back in October.
