Area Four has been dishing out acclaimed wood-fired, scratch-made pizzas in Cambridge’s Kendall Square since 2011. Now folks on the Boston side of the Charles River can enjoy delectable pies topped with house-made mozzarella—as well as an expanded menu of flame-cooked meat, seafood and veggie options, along with a bar serving eclectic craft cocktails, wine by the glass and local beer—at its new South End branch (264 East Berkeley St., 857-317-4805, areafour.com). As if the food wasn’t enough, artsy types should appreciate the colorful decor, highlighted by an art installation near the bar featuring a dozen vintage black and white televisions.
