The first time I ever had it was in Carcassonne in a castle. I figured if they had an entire castle devoted to making the stuff, than this probably wasn't going to be something to replicate on a busy Tuesday night.

BTW the address and map for Bravo here are wrong. They were automatically attached.

Hi all, I was wondering if any other local pizza people knew what happened to Bravo Pizza in Allston? Back in grad school that place was a staple and a genuinely good one at that. However, I stopped by there recently and I didn't recognize anyone behind the counter and the pizza wasn't as good.

Fortunately, I recently "discovered" Pino's in Cleveland Circle, which has virtually the same recipe as Bravo's used to have. I say discovered in quotes b/c my father has been telling me about this great pizza place he went to in college called Pino's for year. I didn't think in a million years it'd still be there. Maybe it's genetic.

Detroit and Michigan traditions?

Thanks again! I grew up in both regions, (NJ and MI) so when I got to MI, I always thought they were talking about the same thing that my Grandparents back east were talking about.

The internet is a great place to learn that you are wrong before you say something IRL!

And Jan, if you'd like me to link to or post something on my blog about this, I'm happy to!

Detroit and Michigan traditions?

Well I'll be!

Thanks for setting me straight!

I'm thinking that the Coney Dog originated.... um, on Coney Island?

Anyway, put me down dor the loose burger as a contentder for MI tradition.
