Pizza Problems- Where Did The Great Pizza Shops Go?

Ric Zoon | Jul 21, 2000 02:31 PM

Just venting here-

I remember being a kid in NY and eating regularly at
these great Pizza shops. The kinds where the front
part is an oasis of pizzas by the slice, italian ices,
zeppoles and in the back is the "dining room" where
the italian wait staff in their black vests serve up
hearty italian red sauced fare along with (if you wish)
pizza in the dining room.

Where did these places go? Do they exist anymore?
It's a sad case to always walk into a place (especially in Manhattan) and think it has potential
to grab some of that old magic and then leave sorrowly
disappointed with a bad taste in your mouth of the
fake mozzarella cheese and sauce from a jar.
