Shonali and Jasper raved about South Brooklyn Pizza in the East Village, where the old man makes each pizza one at a time and cuts the fresh basil over it after it comes out of the oven. Sounds kinda like the DiFara’s pizza I’m too impatient to go out and try. When I showed up, the old man was there. No line. The pizza was already out. I think it’s been sitting out for a while. It was decent for what it was. Margherita slice $4. Yeah, expensive, but maybe better quality than the Ray’s around town. I told Shonali and Jasper about my experience and they saidÂ every time, it was always fresh out of the oven. Yeah, I think that’s key.
As I was walking around with my slice, I could hear people go crazy with World Cup fever in the nearby bars. I thought people had already forgotten about soccer after US was eliminated …like they forget about Haiti …or Dre.
