Luigi’s Pizza–A Perfect New York Slice on the Brooklyn Side

When I told my friend MW that I was heading to Brooklyn’s Park Slope to investigate the Joe’s Pizza War, he told me that it was a must that I also visit Luigi’s Pizza. Little did I know that it was just one block over and across the street, and little did I know just […]

Famous Joe’s of the Village–Now Joe’s Pizza of Park Slope

If it weren’t for the recent news of the latest New York City Pizza War, I may have never gotten to visit what is now called Joe’s Pizza of Park Slope. Following similar battles involving the names Patsy and Ray, this one was about the use of the name Joe’s in Brooklyn by the guy […]

There is just something I like about a Monday morning in Manhattan. Maybe the best way to sum it up is that the “City That Never Sleeps” seems a little sleepy after the weekend. Nonetheless, you can feel the city starting to come awake for another week, but it just doesn’t seem to be in […]

New York City’s Rubirosa Ristorante– The Best Pizza I Have Ever Had!

But, I spent at least a few hours before first making this declaration on Facebook, and it’s now been a few months since I ate at Rubirosa Ristorante. There’s no changing my mind. In fact, after now visiting over 300 pizza joints across the […]
