Staten Island Chowhounds were recently depicted as “like the elusive Unicorn, there are so few of us around” by Tay, with a virtual sigh.

Take heart, SI hounds! We’re seeing more of you on the boards all the time, most recently to brag about your pizza. Joe & Pat’s, Denino’s, Nunzio’s, and Goodfella’s are the names we’ve seen the most—names that make us crave a pie-and-Scorsese-flick night, stat!

Staten Island has also come up in a recent thread sure to raise hackles: I’ve done DiFara’s but who is #2. Leaving aside the question of whether Di Fara is really numero uno (Grimaldi’s and Lucali fans have their hackles up), for pizza devotees who don’t fear Staten Island or the free ferry that will get them there, it sounds like a bit of a weekend walkabout might be in order.
