Day 17, 2003: L'Allegria Brick Oven Pizza (Hell's Kitchen, NYC)

DAY 17: October 17th
LOCATION: Brick Oven Pizza (44th St and 9th Ave., NYC).
GUEST(S): Kirk Damato, Angela DeManti, Erin Foley, Erika Kern
ORDER: 5 slices of an individual cheese pizza, 1 slice of an individual mushroom pizza

PIZZA REPORT: Soft and delicious. This aptly named eating establishment is cozy and tasty. The chef takes your order and prepares the pizza from scratch right in front of you. What the man-behind-the-counter lacks in ordertaking etiquette, he more than makes up for in pizzamaking expertise. With just the right amount of cheese, sauce, and toppings, his creations are consistently delicious. The brick oven results in a soft warm crust that will make you think twice before not-eating it.
  • Erika thinks that the guidelines and requirements for becoming a saint are a bit too broad and have resulted in the dubbing of too many saints.
  • Kirk is the only person I've ever met that has sold blue prints to a decommissioned EPCOT center rollercoaster ride on ebay.
  • Angela gets much better service when she mentions her Sicilian ancestors...despite them having closer ties to the Catholic church than the mafia.
  • Erin makes good catfight noises and hopes the state of Maine is eventually recognized for more than just being the home for Stephen King, former President Bush, and numerous lobsters.
