2 dudes, 8 chins, 12 slices

January 26, 2009

Should you be a regular visitor to my blog, you may have caught a recent post where I reference some of my favorite pizza joints around Jersey… today, with great respect, I bow down to my neighbors to the east in what I must deem: The greatest pizza I’ve ever had.

I was told over and over again by a group of insistent Staten Islanders  that I need to trek out to Bensonhurst (Bklyn) and give L&B Spumoni Gardens a fair shot… well, I finally did, and, needless to say, for the past three days I have not been able to stop eating… and apologizing for my ignorance.

Fresh, hot, cold, re-heated, microwaved…it just doesn’t matter. This pizza is the truth. It’s safe to assume that below a layer of tomato sauce, beneath a hidden layer of cheese and a crisp, well-done Sicilian crust are the answers to some of the world’s greatest questions.

24 slices... 12 to eat, 12 for later

Do yourself a favor, take the Lincoln to the west side, to the battery park, down the belt, past the Verrazanno,  beneath the D Line and down 86th St.  for a guaranteed appetite pleasing experience. It’s well worth the $25+ in tolls. WoW!
