Is this for real? Despite being one of America’s greatest pizza cities, believe it or not, there is still a Domino’s in my home town of Bayonne, NJ. With all the great slices available around town, who would eat here is a mystery to me.
Here’s a brief recap of the year’s pizza news in the Peninsula City with links to the Pizza Snob’s original stories:
The old vacant Broadway location of the legendary Tony’s Pizza was taken over by 3 Brothers from Italy who moved downtown from their former home on the Boulevard.
The former Cottage Street home of the Venice reopened as Bayonne Patio & Grille, but it just wasn’t the same. With a former Venice chef at the helm, The Starting Point now seems to serve the best thin crust bar pie in town.
As the year closed, we were still waiting for the resurrection of the thin-crust and chicken wings specialist the Big Apple. It is slated to become a part of the El Aquila Dorado Mexican restaurant moving from uptown into the old Big Apple Broadway location. Originally planned for March 2017, activity is underway, but for some unknown reason this move has been long delayed.
Likewise, the famous Joe’s Pizzeria has been readying a move to a new location a few blocks south of its current one on uptown Broadway. Again, this one was started months ago, but was still in the works last time we checked.
Well, here’s to a great “Two-Oh-One-Eight” and a big thank you goes out to all the current and former Bayonne residents who supported the Pizza Snob in 2017.
By now, I think I’ve been to just about every pizza joint in Bayonne. I’m sure there’s one hiding somewhere that I’ll find in 2018! If I’ve missed one, please let me know!
