Park Road Shopping Center’s Flour Shop may have gotten its name from a pasta-oriented menu, but our favorite starchy-fresh shared plate makes a good case for a focaccia focus. Embracing Provençal flavors and techniques, the dish tops coal-roasted butternut squash and fresh ricotta with pumpkin seed pistou and pistachio. The real heart of this starter item, though, is its base: crunchy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside focaccia, which was probably just baked in front of you. That’s right: Flour Shop’s whole concept insists on an open kitchen format. This cloud-like bread appears in many forms on the restaurant’s menu. We don’t really care which option you go with, so long as you try it fresh—and with plenty of olive oil.
