From the outside, Lenny’s Pizzeria recalls a kitschy boardwalk facade: Tiny lightbulbs outline a faded red, white, and green sign while a cardboard cutout of a cartoon chef greets visitors on the sidewalk. But after putting in your order at the fluorescent-lit counter, you head to a dining room in back with shiny wood tables, exposed brick, and black-and-white photos of Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, and the like. Opened by Gennaro Lucci in 1954 (and run by his son-in-law today), this pizza parlor has a lengthy menu of traditional Italian entrées. Most folks stick to the basic, thin-crust pies, heaped with a variety of toppings, from mushrooms to anchovies.
