Pizza Pub: An Abomination

guttergourmet | Feb 28, 2009 04:55 AM

New Pizza Pub on 3rd Avenue. Had meant to try Dafonte's new hero branch down the block but it was closed. Pizza Pub looks to be the pizza equivalent of my new recession favorite place Burger Shot Beer 123 as they offer slice/pint/shot combo deals. The guiness was poured alright (not as good as at Molly's across the street of course). But the pizza...I had a sicilian slice and a margharita slice as a sampling. Now the Guttergourmet never met a slice he didn't like (except for that kosher pizzeria up the block from DiFara's when I was 10, but that's another story). So, with that in mind, let me just say: WARNING, WARNING, DANGER, DANGER!!!! The sicilian looked exactly like the squares served at Lazzara's, one of my favorite grandma slices in the city. Lured into a false sense of complacency, I tasted. BLECH!!!!!!!!Greasy, oily, fishy (yes, I said FISHY), tasteless, cardboard. I thought something was wrong with my palate. Nothing, especially pizza, could be this bad. I choked it down not believing my own tastebuds. Turning to the margharita slice, I took a couple of bites. All I can say is that it made me wish I'd ordered another sicilian instead,t hat's how bad it was. I could barely choke it down with the beer. This country is really going to hell. STAY AWAY. You have been warned.
