When the Moon Hits Your Eye....

We all know how much New Yorkers LOVE their pizza and Patricia's II, in Throggs Neck, is a great bet when you're in the mood for a slice of Heaven. Currently located 3764 East Tremont (they will be moving a few blocks up any time now so stayed tuned for a much larger and "fresher" space), Patricia's is a favorite among locals.

Vintage murals, red checkered tablecloths and framed photographs of diners and celebs, give this eatery that comfy (nearly kitschy) atmosphere (all that's missing are chianti bottles hanging from the ceiling!) I hope the new place retains the same cozy, old-fashioned charm! An authentic brick oven (pictured with manager Mark Coragliano) makes for a fantastic pizza like the one I had (pictured). Topped with gorgonzola cheese, asparagus, onions and capers (my swap for black olives), this MINI was $8.95 - now THAT'S Amore!!
