Sliver PIzzeria and other new pizza places in Berkeley

Has anyone tried Silver yet? I haven't, but it looks to me almost exactly like Cheeseboard..!

I was reading this short article which mentions some new pizza places to come this Spring:

        Just to confirms, Pizza Moda is a "real restaurant" that does not do single slices, right?

        1. re: psb

          Currently just dinner and whole 12" and 15" pies.

      2. Sliver's having an opening party tomorrow 2/20 5-6. Free slivers of pizza, live music.

        1. Sliver PIzzeria

          2132 Center St. Berkeley

          1. went in here for lunch today. slices are $2.75. and yes, you get the CB obligatory bonus slice (or sliver, perhaps). Half and whole pie prices are same as cheeseboard. also have the option of bringing home half baked pies at $10 (half) and $20 (whole). As the report in this thread alluded to, the concept is basically a copycat of cheeseboard. However, the crust is a bit different, although as psb noted, it's likely due to the oven rather than the ingredients. Basically, this place is a cross between cheeseboard and bobby g's - cheeseboard like pizza with a bar like feel (several televisions in the restaurant showing sporting events and, of course, the bar with noted happy hour).

              I looked in the other day and they were cooking in a gas deck oven. Did they replace the wood oven?

                It's a lively addition to that area of Berkeley.

                Running late for a 7pm Saturday show at Berkeley rep. a few weeks back, Sliver seemed the best bet for a quick dinner. Like CB, the line quickly dissipated and the music inside was so loud we had to grab seats outside. Lots of seating. The crust was a bit different than your modal CB slice, but within the boundaries of normal variation--- it had some blackened bits on the bottom, not just desirable char, but I've had that happen before at CB before. Toppings were indistinguishable from what you get at CB (cheese, no sauce, lots of olive oil, other stuff).
