Pizzas and old-fashioned atmosphere; avoid other food

For juke boxes on the tables with Frank Sinatra, waiters who seem as if they've been there since the pizza place opened, it's fun if you go when there's no line. They seem to have been the original wood-burning oven pizza place, a Village favorite, but recent pizza parlors may be cutting into their business. It's a fun place for a kids' birthday party. Cheap, almost undrinkable wine, long menu of various combinations (sausage, meatballs, mushrooms, onion and peppers). Prices are fair and you can eat cheaply, but don't venture into the food section of the menu as it's truly mediocre.

"Large cheese pie with fresh garlic." Five words spoken by me at least once a week to one of the guys at John's on Bleecker throughout my three years at NYU law school. Didn't matter who was with me--the order never varied. Still doesn't. Manna from heaven, nectar of the gods, call it what you will...it's the perfect pie.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
