Emeryville, California, United States

Rottenest City on the Pacific Coast

Rotten City Pizza is a throwback to Emeryville’s rotten past and the long lost days of gambling, speakeasies, and burlesque houses. It was Earl Warren, Chief Justice of the US, who dubbed it as “the rottenest city on the Pacific Coast” in 1927. These days all that’s left of the rotten trace is Rotten City Pizza, a thin crust New York style pizza joint that strives to use local and sustainable ingredients whenever possible. Grab a quick slice and enjoy it across the street at Prizefighter or have it delivered to the comfort of your own home.

I swear it’s not actually rotten, just highly addictive and habit forming
