PIZZA SNOB RATING ****1/2 Nearer Perfection
My posting yesterday about the demise of Mario’s Pizza, brought with it the sad news from my friends on the You Know You Grew Up in Bayonne When …. Facebook page that Tony’s Pizza also closed about a month ago.
The Snob usually checks on these things whenever I can. But strangely enough, when I was home last week, there was construction on Broadway right in front of Tony’s creating a detour that kept me from driving by.
This is a hard one for the Snob to take since in the days of the twenty-five cent slice, I practically cut my teeth on Tony’s great pie. It will be missed.
It just keeps getting sadder every time I go back to Bayonne. There are just fewer and fewer reminders of the good old days, and there are way too many vacant storefronts on the once vibrant Broadway.
All around this country of ours—let’s do our best to support the local businesses that once-defined America. I pick unique and special over cheap and corporate.
NEW PIZZA SNOB RATING R.I.P
