L&B Spumoni Gardens


L & B specializes, and in New York is supremely famous for, Sicilian style pizza, and the "garden" which is a bounty of outdoor seating in the form of picnic tables. Place an order at the window to the left, which can be slightly off-putting if you delay your wishes even a second or two. Square slices of the Sicilian ($3, below) are what to start with, the crust is as puffy and gooey at the same time as you could ever wish.

This square cost $2.25 when first written about here in 2010.

But hmmm... how to explain? This is good pizza, it is. But pilgrimage worthy pizza? If it was across the street from me, I'd choose it. But the grumpy moods and craziness of all the people in the garden on a nice day are just not a comfortable combination.

Gravesend is fun though, and you can combine a trip out here with some other good eating that you normally would not do. Bring enough friends and order a whole pie, then everyone gets the middle or edges just as they please. That's the way to do it.
