Dewey's Pizza

This salad is amazing! There is nothing quite like sharing yummy food with family and it helps if your really hungry. For Martin Luther King Day we ate at Dewey's Pizza located in northern Kentucky at Newport on the Levee, on the banks of the Ohio river. We ordered the house salad which contains pine nuts, sun-dried craisins, and goat cheese on a bed of field greens with romaine lettuce. The dressing is Dewey's own house balsamic vinaigrette. Our Pizza was the Bronx Bomber which includes a red sauce with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, green pepper, and black olives. For the kids we ordered the X-Pepperoni and Hawaiian. All of the food was incredibly fresh and delicious. There was a twenty minute wait for a table, but it was worth it.
Before we indulged in the local cuisine we visited the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. We saw a slave pen which is an actual structure found on a farm in Kentucky and rebuilt in the Freedom Center. The exhibit From Slavery to Freedom had a room with the ship names, used in trafficking slaves, carved in stone on the wall. In the center of the room was a column with pebbles, glass beads, and stones to represented all the slaves who died on the voyage. The room was lighted in such a way as to evoke the sea, with greens and blues. It was a very educational way to honor and celebrate diversity.
