This week I take the A train the other way on my way to New Park Pizza and an delicious square slice.
Took a trip up to NYC to get a taste of
one of the classic New York pizza slices from L&B’s –
and boy, was it worth it!
L&B Spumoni Gardens
2725 86th Street
Brooklyn, NY. 11223

From the website:
“In 1938 Ludovico learned from a baker how to make pizza in a garage on West 8th Street, Brooklyn.
To sell his products he decided to peddle them using a horse and wagon.
So he purchased Babe the horse, and a wagon, and sold his products up and down the streets of Gravesend and Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.
In the mid 1950s L&B Spumoni Gardens built the second of the now three buildings, which is now the Pizzeria, selling our famous thick Sicilian pies, as well as our regular round pies.”
