Rather than continue the very long thread about this subject, I thought I would create a new one, this time to provide a brief review of Modern Apizza in New Haven, as it relates to Pizzeria Regina in Boston.
As stated in the original thread, we got around to going to Regina a week ago Friday and it was AWESOME!! I went so far as to say it was the second best pizza I had ever had. With that very positive experience (and tasty pizza) under our belts, we eagerly anticipated our trip to New Haven and Modern Apizza. After all the hype of seeing it on a number of Food Network shows (Man vs. Food, etc.) we figured we were headed for pizza nirvana. How wrong we were. I have to say, I don't recall ever being so let down by a pizza in my life. Especially after all the anticipation. But this apizza thing was nothing short of awful. The crust was mushy, floppy and just plain bad. The sauce was salty (I was still tasting salt for the rest of the day) and the cheese and toppings were only so-so. To even begin to compare this slop to Pizzeria Regina is laughable. I will also post this on the Southern New England board in order to warn others about the ahorrible apizza that awaits through the doors of Modern Apizza. Needless to say, Pizzeria Regina was our hands-down favorite.
By the way, we ended our New England tour to Gennaro's in Quincy and we thought the food was quite good. It may not be the best in the Boston area, but it was good! My wife's pumpkin and lobster ravioli was tremendous. And the whoopie pie we took home from Gennaro's was the best we had on the trip.
