Island Creek Oyster Bar is known for bivalves, but this Thursday the restaurant morphs into a late-night pizza parlor. Chef Jeremy Sewall and New York City food photographer Michael Harlan Turkell join forces for a pizza throwdown, and proceeds bolster the Island Creek Oysters Foundation's efforts toward promoting sustainable aquaculture. But don't expect simple things like pepperoni and mushrooms. For $15, you'll feast on curiosities like bahn "mizza" and bacon-and-egg pie.
Jeremy Sewall's menu:
Mushroom, Robiola, Potato, Truffle Oil
Local summer tomato sauce, oregano, pepperoni, parm
Smoked Salmon Pizza
Michael Harlan Turkell's menu:
Bacon and Egg
They'll also have antipasti, breadsticks (because nothing goes better with carbs than carbs), and dessert. The pie-slinging commences at 11 p.m.
Island Creek Oyster Bar, 500 Commonwealth Ave., Boston
