Damn you Artichoke!

guttergourmet | Apr 14, 2008 09:49 AM

Stood in line a half hour Friday evening-gave up (and went around the corner to Luzzo's which is pretty good). Drove back twice Saturday afternoon-closed each time. Staggered in Sunday night at 9:30 PM. Still a long line for the square and artichoke pizzas and artichoke fritters. Cut in front of everyone by agreeing to accept only round slices. Desperately wanted to hate it. Even though I was a little drunk, I wasn't impaired enough not to be able to tell that this was (damn it) comparable to DiFara's. I know that such a comparison is blasphemous and when it was first made on the Slice website I condemned the writer to pizza purgatory. NY Magazine said it was more like the recently departed DeMarco's than DiFara's, of which I was probably the biggest fan. But the round slices were DiFaraesque-even better than DeMarco's (son of DiFara's). And judging by the line of loonies ahead of me, I suspect the squares may be even better. Looks like I'll be standing in line again soon. Damn.
