Scoozi and Croma
Why does one neighborhood need two places that are exactly the same a block apart from each other?
Anyway, which would you choose in a pinch for yuppie pizzas?
Croma is a chain based in the UK. I have never tried it. I understand that location was closed for some months, maybe for some kind of renovation, or maybe a transfer in ownership of the franchise? I believe it has struggled.
Scoozi is independent, locally-owned, and surprisingly good for Newbury Street. Very nice pizzas, pretty good salads and sandwiches, a pleasant-enough patio. It is also open for lunch, which Croma wasn't, at least when I tried to visit it for that purpose about a year ago.
I had lunch once at Croma, and it was good, if not memorable. I think it was sometime last fall, we were wandering on Newbury Street and decided to stop in. Not necessarily a place I'd run back to, but certainly fit the bill for some people-watching on the patio and decent food.

Thanks for the replies. I'll definitely give the nod to Scoozi for a patio lunch in the future. From their menus I could barely distinguish them. I've had one or two takeout pies from each in the past but never dined in either joint.
