best white pie in ny other than louie & ernie's?

It seems like white pies have fallen out of fashion. I grew up on long island and made pizzas there for over seven years growing up in the 90s, when white pies were plentiful and perpetual best sellers. In the past few years however they, along with its cousins the ricotta spinach slice, have all but vanished. Happily however grandma slices continue to spread far and wide.

JJ's Asian Fusion (Astoria)?

Really good sushi, the lunch specials are a great value. You must try the wasabi cream edemame pot stickers- one of a kind.

Opinion on some Buenos Aires restaurants

I second that, We just got back last week and La Cabrera was the best. I preffered it to Cabanas las lilas as well.

Tomoe Sushi-The real deal?

Hey so what is the real deal? is it worth the hype was it once better? Or is it like the neighboring Lupa and all hype?

Lupa-A Bad Time

Wow It was a stunner. Rude staff and horrible crowd. Foood extremely mediocre ie. gnocci and particularly the dry chicken. Anybody know what is good there? Is it possible the place is all hype?

bacci Abracci Vs. Fornina

My vote is for Bacci although is it just me or does this place always seem kind of empty?

Bamontes update-grimm goings

Bamontes is really slipping if todays visit is to be used as any barometer. The service was hostile and poor. Firstly the server didnt inform us of the dinein brooklyn menu and then acted pained when we inquired about it. Our initial order was obviously forgotten about and we waited at least 20 minutes for out appetizers. Later we waited a long time for dessert only to recieve the wrong ones and then were forced to wait a considerable time for the replacement. Yet more waiting for the check, and you can see how it went. Quite distressing it really seems to be slipping.

Brooklyn Hound stranded in Vero beach over the holidays-Please help!

Please hook me up with an excellent spot within a 20 or so minute drive I am near the disney resort here if that means anything to you. My mother just moved here so I will be coming back many more times, she was down in Boyton before and i was able to find many great spots around there, thanks in large part to zagat. So far this seems like a culinary wasteland. Prove me wrong!

The most under the rader treat out there in the hood is Bahia which has amazing and dirt cheap Salvadorean taste sensations. Anybody else know of any other great relativly unknown spots in the area?

Pizza Grupo-

Wow maybe i wnet on an off night but the problem wasnt the thinness of the crust which I, as a native new yorker with 7 years of professional pizzamaking in my past can greatly appreiate. The problems I had were with the supstandard sauce, cheese and ingredients, in this case bieng artichokes and sausage.

Pizza Grupo-

Absolutly horrible. As of now the most overrated in the zagat which gies it a 26 rating for food. Something id expect in a pizzaria in Michigan or Upstate. Nearly as bad & also overrated-though not in Zagat guide- Brick oven piiza in Williamsburg. Everyone agree?

Williamsburg Brooklyn Best Pizza Pie?

I second that my experience, and it will be the only one, with Brick oven resulted in pies nothing short of disgusting.
