Day 23, 2005: Li'l Frankie's (E. Village, NYC)

DAY 23: October 23rd
LOCATION: Li'l Frankie's (1st Ave and Houston St, NYC)
GUEST(S): Nate Shelkey
ORDER: 1 individual pizza margharita

PIZZA REPORT: Good enough for Sophia Coppola, good enough for me. One time when I went to Li'l Frankie's, Sophia Coppola was there and my pizza was delicious. This time, no Sophia, but yes delicious. My favorite part of a Li'l Frankie's pizza is the wood fired brick oven consistency. It leaves the pie crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. I ordered Buffala mozzarella on my margharita instead of the standard mozzarella just because once you've had the cheese made with the milk of a water buffalo, it's hard to go back. The sauce was well distributed and was very well integrated into the water buffalo cheese and basil. Also, the portions were just about perfect. An individual pie is about 16" in diameter and sliced into 6 pieces. It really hits the spot (the "spot" being the empty 8(pi) square inches space in your stomach).
  • In addition to being really funny, Nate Shelkey is a musician ( While discussing the topic of engaging your audience during a concert he informed me of the term "shoe gazing". This is the trend among indie bands that refuse to talk inbetween songs and instead prefer to look straight their shoes.
