Lockeland Table—East Nashville Gourmet Restaurant Makes a Great Pizza

One of the Pizza Snob’s unwritten rules is to only blog about places that specialize in pizza. I therefore typically exclude places where pie is merely a sideline to their main menu. I recently made an exception for East Nashville’s Lockeland Table after getting repeated reports about how good their pizza is. The occasion was […]

UPDATE: Nick’s Italian Deli and Pizzeria in Franklin, TN Quietly Calls It Quits

Someone recently brought to my attention that Nick’s Italian Deli and Pizzeria in my hometown of Franklin had shut down for good. Not much of a fan of their pizza, nor were they on any of my local pizza bud’s radar, it was not surprising that I missed this old news. Word is that the […]

Scarr’s Pizza– Fantastic Pizza in a Hip Vibe on Manhattan’s Lower East Side

The Snob has been at this pizza business for a few years now and has covered New York City fairly well. Focusing on the best known places and sometimes those that simply cross my path, there are still probably a zillion spots left for me to visit. For my latest adventure, I visited a new […]
