Saying Papa Johns is the McDonalds of pizza is an insult to McDonalds.

New Member from Brooklyn

Brooklyn boys are joksters. Lewd, vulgar joksters.

We already know that

There's a lot of bad pizza in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island...
The old adage that if it's from Brooklyn, it's better than if it's from anywhere else hasn't been true in a long time.
Having said that, some of the REAL places that have been around for ages - still do it right.
And there are plenty of new places the have popped up in recent years that know how to do it right.

There used to be a good place on 3rd avenue and 80 something street in BK. I can't seem to find it now, either closed or opened under a new name.

Spumoni Gardens is often considered one of the best.
Down the block from where I work are two pizza places - quite literally at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Grimaldis' and Juliana's - both are excellent.

Since I'm in downtown bk, I'm close to Juliana's and Grimaldi's. They're both great. But TBH, I just order Papa John's instead cause I'm lazy. And they have that butter garlic sauce. Mmmmm.

Never been to Spumoni. Might have to venture there at some point.

All this talk makes me wish I was back in NYC.

There is some interest for a meet in Oceanside, NY at a coffee shop called 'Caffeine' which is also at a train station so there is plenty of parking on the weekend. The owner of that shop drives a MK7 R and has suggested a meet on Feb 2 or 3rd. Mind you it will be cold but he says the coffee shop has room for us to hang out in...as long as it's not a crazy amount of people anyway.

About 4 have already expressed interest including navindralr, myself and the coffee shop owner.

Here is a link to the thread on vortex, please join if you haven't and chime in on which day you prefer.

I personalize like Elegante on 69th and 3rd in Bay Ridge. I've had Grimaldi's and Spumoni which are both good.

I think people in NYC go for places like Papa Johns for the convince and price. I mean it's a way cheaper and you know what you are getting. If I want pizza I head to Elegante since I'm close to them but still have to pass other pizza places to get to them. For me they have the right amount of sauce and cheese and just have a great taste. But everyone is different and not all NYC pizza is good that's for sure.

I used to live 2 blocks from that pizza place. Bay Ridge Sushi (3rd between 69th and Ovington) is a good place, btw.

I don't mess with Papa John's... anymore. Not since I found those delicious Red Baron frozen pizzas. Best in Brooklyn.

Nice, any other good food spots you recommend in Bay Ridge?

Yeah, good point about making it for that Saturday. I suggested a 9am-12pm time as well.

Red Baron, no way. Tombstone FTW. Lol.

If you all ever find yourselves on the UES, check out Mariellas Pizza.
That was my favorite spot. Also lived over it hah.


EDIT:
Plus one of the dudes that worked there (maybe like a manager or something?) drove a MK6 GTI (when he drove).

I like sushi a lot, so I recommend Fushimi on 4th ave and 90 something street. It's a little more expensive ($$$), but they have some great rolls. And I think it has a full bar.

Not in Bay Ridge, but Chikurin Sushi on Kings Hwy and in Sheepshead Bay are pretty nice places too.

Now there was an Italian food store on the corner of 3rd and Ovington, don't know if it's still there. They had theeeee bestest garlic knots. And they baked their own bread which was great.
