Tastebud's cozy dining room—cabinlike with exposed wood beams and, on a recent visit, aromas of baked herbs—successfully entices hoards of rain-weary and hungry diners. Light, thin and pillowy, the wood-fired pizzas feature seasonal toppings like shiitake mushrooms, delicata squash, fig jam, fennel and farm-fresh eggs.
