No Nolita


guess I’m partly to blame for expecting a lot.  First, you have the same people who brought you Borough, which I liked a lot.  Second, it’s fucking New York pizza!  It’s supposed to be the love child of American portions and the pomodoro sauce of New York’s Italian cuisine and it’s usually pretty awesome.

‘ve been having trouble finding a new place to eat because I don’t feel like driving some place too far.  I ended up remembering this new place right beside Charlie’s Grind and Grill in Kapitolyo that I keep seeing, but never really stopped to find out what they serve there, much less try their food.  No better time than now, ...
