Ignazio's Pizza

I went last night with some friends.

Shared three pies: the white pizza, so delicious, and my favorite.
the bacon, avocado, and tomato, i think it was strange to have avocado.
the shrimp specialty pizza, also yummy.

we drank a red wine from brooklyn oenology club, soft and good with the pizza.

grimaldi's can't compare. why wait on that long line?

passover dinner in a restaurant

Hi everyone,

I have to say that:

yes it was crazy (in a fun, kitschy way)
it was quite yummy
and although not cheap, the portions were big, and I have an entire portion of their skirt steak in my freezer because the appetizers filled me up.

my group had lots of fun!

Had dinner at Thomas Beisl yesterday. Have been there several times over the past year and must say that the food is an improvement from a year ago.

We both ate the chicken liver terrine, I had the chicken paprika with spaetzle, friend had goulash with spaetzle. Desert was apple strudel and kaiserschmarren.

everything was tasty and authentic, portions were good. at $23 a person, with quality and portion size it was a good deal.

Thanks everyone.

I decided on Sammy's Roumanian in the LES, it should be nicely crazy and hopefully the food will be good.

a good pesach to everyone!

Carroll Gardens rut...its a good thing!!!

Interesting Carol Gardens,

I have to say, having been to pit stop several times, that it wouldnt be a loss if it closed for good. The food isnt great, service lackluster, and the play area seems dangerous.

Fairway's Lobster Roll - a report


Just went to Jordan's 2 weeks ago, looking forward to a lobster roll.
was very disappointed with having to squeeze out the mayo from a packet, that is ridiculous. I wouldn't tell people to go there for a lobster roll.

i havent tried the other places mentioned, but fairway and mary will be on my list!

I am new to bk heights and wondered if anyone has any favorites in the area.
