At the Counter of L&B Spumoni Gardens, in Bensonhurst

L&B Spumoni, at the counter Photo by myself at L and B Spumoni Gardens at 86th and West 10th Streets, in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.

At the counter of L&B Spumoni Gardens in Bensonhurst, I asked the fellow taking my order whether I could take a photo. He said to me gruffly, 'Okay, but don't expect me to smile.'

Haha. This tough exterior is typical of this neighborhood, a tell-it-like-it-is attitude. The deep dish Scilian pizzas here are possibly the best in Brooklyn. And we loves and knows our pizzas!

My fiance Mark returned from LA on Friday and one of the first things he said to me was 'L and B Spumoni'. Hence our trek out to Bensonhurst, a 15-minute ride east by car from Park Slope.

The pizza is light, fluffy and doughy, with a wondrous layer of sauce. I know it sounds odd to wax poetic about pizza, but I cannot help myself. A half-tray of Sicilian (12 slices) costs $19. Somehow, we resisted digging in until we got home.

Why make them square, only to fit in the box?

You're making me hungry. Of course, fire hydrants and old shoes make me hungry . . .

I love his comment, just what I would expect from a busy guy in NY.
