Spotted in #Astoria #Queens #NYC: an old perfectly maintained #Checker cab. Not a working cab — no Checkers remain on the road as taxis. #itsinqueens #queenscapes #thisisnewyorkcity #iloveny #checkercab #checkertaxi #nyctaxi
#weeklypizzalunch No. 2 at #PrinceStreetPizza, whose Spicy Spring slice is A KING AMONG SQUARES. Good lord, is this a phenomenal slice. #pizza #pizzaporn #foodporn #nycpizza #nycpizzagram #soho #manhattan #nyc #thisisnewyorkcity #pepperoni #squareslice #onthetable #nycfood
#weeklypizzalunch with a man I’ve learned a lot from on the pizza front, @johnnydoubleu. Here, the Marlonzola #pizza from Pizza Mezzaluna on Houston & MacDougal. It’s a white pie with mozzarella, Gorgonzola, fontina, and pear. I LOVE Gorgonzola and pear pizza and don’t have it nearly often enough. Great suggestion, Johnny Dubs! Fantastic crust. Crisp, light, chewy, flavorful. To quote the T-800, “I’ll be baaack.” #nycpizza #nycpizzagram #foodporn #omnomnom #nyc #thisisnewyorkcity #eeeeeats #greenwichvillage #manhattan
Congrats to Liz Barrett, editor at large of PMQ magazine (one of the premier pizza trade mags), on the publication of her book! Well-written, engaging, beautifully designed and photographed. And I’m not just saying that because I make a brief appearance in it, lol! I love the cover! #pizza #pizzabook #pizzabooks #books
Accidentally went one stop too far on the train this morning and ended up at 49th Street Station. Which is fine, because it’s one of my favorite stations. I love the red-painted brick and the terrazzo floors. Very cheerful and late-’70s. #thisisnewyorkcity #nyc #mta #nycsubway (at MTA-49th St)
#weeklypizzalunch — I’ve probably eaten slices from Rose & Joe’s more than from anywhere else, and I can say from considerable experience that an edge (but not a corner), on a plate, no reheat is the way to go. It loses something in the reheat, and in fact is best somewhere between warm and not-straight-out-of-the-oven hot. I like to add red pepper flakes, pepper, and oregano — but they’ve hidden that last one lately. Pro tip: If you want a shake of Parmesan on it, ask. Tey keep it in the fridge. #astoria #queens #nyc #thisisnewyorkcity #itsinqueens #queenscapes #foodporn #omnomnom #nycpizzagram #pizza #nycpizza #eeeeeats
#FBF to the early/mid 2000s and the crop of OG foodbloggers circa 2003–2004. Graham Holliday of Noodlepie was based in Vietnam and winning acclaim for his accounts of street food there. Like many of the early foodbloggers did, we struck up an online friendship based on mutual admiration (at least I hope it was mutual) and a sense of “Hey, you’re blogging about food too?!?” Great to see that his book has a cover (and a nice-looking one) and to hear it’s coming out in March 2015 on Anthony Bourdain’s imprint. Congrats, Graham!
Clearing out photos from my phone. Here’s a #latergram of a #FamousOriginalA at #PaulieGees made with my own sausage (leftover from the @MargotsPizza pop-up a couple weeks ago). Fun fact: If Paulie catches you turning up the kitchen lights to get better lighting for a photo, he’ll say, “What is this, Luna Park?” #pizza #nycpizzagram #pizzagram #foodporn #omnomnom #greenpoint #brooklyn #nyc #thisisnewyorkcity
When I worked at a non-profit that handled suicide prevention, I had access to the donation records. Each month, a specific man donated 15$ to our organization. It was like clockwork.. same day, same man, he had been doing this for over 4 years. It always seemed odd to me but I never questioned it… until I saw a note attached one month. "For Noah- Dad"
his donation was once his child’s allowance.
I can promise you, they would miss you for the rest of their lives.
As luck would have it, @caseyspizza was offering its fennel sausage pizza today. I had my fingers crossed that it would be. Sausage and onion is my favorite topping combo, and Casey’s sausage is fantastic. This pie is topped with heritage pork sausage, fennel and anise seed, mozzarella, red onion, grana padano cheese, and olive oil. Overall, Casey’s pizzas would do a brick-and-mortar location proud, ie., it’s not just “good … for a truck” — it’s good, PERIOD. Reminds me in texture and preparation of the New York coal oven or New Haven pizzas — similar crust in that vein. Crisp, chewy in a good chewy way. Some nice charring but not too much. Grabbed my pie and ran (@margotming was getting tired) but inhaled a slice a half block away. I couldn’t wait to get it to the Ferry Building, where I was rendezvousing with my wife. The hot cheese pulled away in oozy thick strings, just like you wanna see. The sauce has a nice balance of sweetness and acidity. Pretty much top tier #pizza. #sfpizzagram #sf #SanFrancisco #foodporn #foodtruck #omnomnom #pizzagram
