Hot Box

It’s not just sharing beers with friends that we miss while Massachusetts bars are closed. We also pine for the days of splitting bar pies, that South Shore munchie made for pairing with pitchers of cold suds. Luckily, Somerville’s Hot Box, a takeout window tucked into open-air Bow Market, keeps the tradition alive nearby, dispensing gobble-worthy wheels of sauce, artisanal toppings (including wild-harvested mushrooms from Martha’s Vineyard), and cheese melted right to the electric-oven-crisped edge.
