L & B Spumoni Garden in Brooklyn NY
« on: March 03, 2014, 06:31:20 PM »
A friend of my wife's wants to bring us to Brooklyn for "some of the best pizza you ever had". Has anyone been here? From what I've been reading on here and elsewhere, Williamsburg is the place for some great pizza. Thanks guys /gals!

chaze,  there is an L&B thread , I think much of it is trying to recreate but you might want to look through that.   Also, there was a pizza crawl a couple years ago and I think L&B was hit.  It might have been titled something like Chau's pizza tour .

Deb, thanks for the links. I did a search and nothing came up on my end. Oh well. Anyway, it looks like L&B is known for their square pie huh?

John, I saw pics of the square pie and the video of when they were on Man v Food. It does look good! I guess I will have to give it a go huh? :-) I'm tempted to go by Williamsburg Pizza and/or Motorino since they are in the area :-D

If you go, don't forget to get a spumoni.

Williamsburg and Spumoni Garden are not very near each other, though Williamsburg pizza is nearer to manhattan. You could consider trying New Park in Howard Beach, its a quick zip on the belt parkway.

L&B is very good, but I wouldn't qualify it as the 'best pizza ever.' To visit Brooklyn and not make it to Williamsburg would be pretty sad, imo.

And New Park is, according to Google maps, a 17 minute drive, but, that's without traffic, and I don't think you're ever going to see the belt parkway without much traffic during daylight hours.

Here it is...the famous square pie at L&B! It was awesome. Very simple but very tasty.
