Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour

Although we’ll forgive The Times (Online UK) misnaming of the Dumbo acronym (“Downtown Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass”) and that “Grimaldi’s has nothing on L&B up in Benson-hurst” (you can’t compare the two; they’re both great, different style pizzas), they did a good job summarizing the Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour, which is a guided bus tour of Brooklyn’s best pizzarias, including Grimaldi’s and L&B Spumoni Gardens. The interesting part is the fact that there are actual tours of Brooklyn pizzarias. We Brooklynites have our favorite local pizzas, so there are probably some pizzas that are missing from the tour (what about Totonno’s in Coney Island or DiFara’s in Bay Ridge?), but it’s great to see that foreigners are recognizing one of the best pizzas in the world exist in Brooklyn.

If you have friends or family coming into town, this is a great way to introduce them to real Brooklyn pizza. But you might also want to take them to your favorite pizzaria after the tour. Read some of the reviews on their website.
