Just another ridiculously delicious spot - for pizza, no less - from Boston restaurateur Todd English, Figs is one of the better deals in Beacon Hill. Creative pies made with crisp vegetables and a mix of interesting seasonings can please just about anyone. Salads of fruits and cheeses start the meal off right, and even if focaccia before pizza seems a little redundant, we’re quickly forgiving because everything is so amazingly good. Half and half pizzas are the way to go by us - split a meal but get two toppings! Try the namesake prosciutto and fig pizza for a new classic favorite.
The space is a tight squeeze on busy evenings, so consider a late lunch or takeout as other options. The Charlestown location also makes it a bit easier to find a seat. We don’t dismiss the value of The Upper Crustdown the Beacon Hill block, but we revel in the genius of Figs.
