Ann Arbor isn't really known as a pizza-eating destination. It's easy to understand why: It's a college town, and you can make a fast buck pumping out a pie with inexpensive pizza if you're either a chain or a place in the style of a chain. Thank goodness for Neopapalis, which hand-crafts thin crust pizzas and fires them up for you in their giant stone oven. Just thinking about their crispy pizza makes our stomachs growl. Their large dining area is somehow suitable for both a fancy date and a family night out, and their wine selection is far better than you'd expect.
