Fairfield, CT area pizza

Years ago I fell in love with the Pinky Pie from Gregory's in Monroe and now that it's closed I'm looking to find something similar. I haven't seen anything comparable on menus in Fairfield (town, haven't really checked the rest of the county).

If you've never had it, the pizza was a pink vodka sauce base with parmesan cheese (I think) and literal globs of ricotta. It was delicious and I'm craving another! Does anybody know where I can find a similar pie?

Birthday Dinner Party Suggestions

I'm trying to plan a party at a nice restaurant for my Dad's 60th birthday. I'm looking for someplace that will allow us to bring our own cake and is willing to either section off an area of their restaurant or give us a private room for only 15 people. Anyplace around New Hope, Lahaska, Doylestown, Lansdale, Ambler....basically not in or around the city. Preferably a little closer to the NJ border since we have family coming from there.

We've looked at Baci but they sadly don't allow outside cakes, and Dettera in Ambler (who I assume due to recent water damage is busy and not responding). It can't be Middle Eastern cuisine, Mexican or Sushi...I realize that limits us but we're trying to accomodate all family dietary restrictions.

The party is set for October 15 and we desperately need to make a reservation this weekend! Any suggestion are welcome! Thanks!

Suggestions for 60th Anniversary - Italian - Brooklyn

I know that Little Italy seems like a tacky place to send someone for such a milestone anniversary, but Benito II is by far the best Italian restaurant I've eaten in stateside. I spent four months living in Italy and this place is the most authentic food and meal style (aka relaxed and prolonged) I've had since I've been back in the US. It looks like a little hole in the wall but it's delicious and I highly recommend this place, here's the website.
