Searching for Pie in Columbus, Ohio – Adriatico’s New York Style Pizza

There was a time in the Snob’s real job where his co-workers called him the “Traveling Treasurer.” However, in these days of e-mail, internet and pricy airfares, my business travel has certainly been reduced. (Oh, the adventures the Snob could have had!) Fortunately, duty recently called, and I made a last minute trip to Columbus, […]

Atlantic City NJ Boardwalk Pizza – I Gambled and I Lost

On a recent trip home, Mom and Dad suggested we accept the Borgota’s offer of a free Atlantic City hotel room so that they could spend a day pushing buttons in the casino to win credits on slot machines. (I think slots were more fun when you got to pull the handle and coins poured […]

Broadway Pizza Walk (Bayonne, NJ) Part Two: – Pompei and Pizza Masters

Continuing my walk along Broadway, my third stop was Pompei, a long-established joint that recently had the distinction of winning the inaugural reader’s poll for “Best Regular Pizza” by the Bayonne Community News. I question this poll altogether as it cost a joint $300 to be listed as an entrant. As a result, not all […]

Broadway Pizza Walk (Bayonne, NJ) Part One: Tony’s and San Vito

Thomas Wolfe once said “you can’t go home again.”  The Snob says “sometimes you go home.” Home for me is Bayonne, New Jersey, a peninsula surrounded by Newark and two boroughs of New York City -Manhattan and Staten Island. Mom and Dad still live there in the house I grew up in. It becomes my […]

Thin, Crispy & Crunchy – Staten Island’s Joe & Pat’s

It was the Labor Day holiday, and the Snob planned a trip to the sometimes forgotten New York City borough of Staten Island. Always interested in seeing a good baseball game, I took the short trip over the Bayonne Bridge to see the Staten Island Yankees play. This minor league version of my favorite team […]

Benny Tudino’s – Hoboken’s Home of the Largest Slice

The Snob’s alter ego Music City Mike always includes some live shows in his trips to NYC. This trip he and his old music mate Jersey City Charlie paid a visit to the legendary Maxwell’s in Hoboken to see reunited power poppers The dBs. Over dinner, I introduced Charley to my Snob persona, and he got […]

Ignazio’s Pizza – Why Wait In Brooklyn?

On the latest trip back to the Big Apple, the Snob set his sights on the borough of Brooklyn, and, specifically, the famous Grimaldi’s, a place said to be favored by Frank Sinatra. (Did he really send his private jet from Vegas to bring in pies?) Accompanied by The Kid, his girlfriend, and the Snob’s […]

Alabama Getaway to Famous Joe’s Pizzeria

The Snob’s alter-ego, Music City Mike,  just loves a road trip. He jumped at his friend Monty’s suggestion that they head to Huntsville, Alabama to see Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit record a live record at a local club. As with any road trip, the Snob did his googling and came up with a […]

Music City – Lunch at Joey’s House of Pizza

Like his brother Manny’s, this other House of Pizza owned by Joey is a great go-to place for lunch in Nashville. And lunch it is – Joey’s House of Pizza is only open from 11am to 3pm, Monday through Friday. Word was that he left Brentwood’s Maryland Farms location when he got tired of paying […]

UPDATE – The Famous Roio’s Pizza Gets A Facelift

One of the Snob’s first stories was about the great pizza and crazy history of the original Ray’s Pizza which now operates in Manhattan as The Famous Roio’s. As a first recipient of our “Perfect Slice Award,” I was pleased to get this recent e-mail from them: We would like to thank you for your […]
