Old School: L&B Spumoni Gardens
Generations of Brooklynites continue to flock to this family owned, 70-year-old pizzeria in Gravesend for homemade spumoni, ices, and the infamous Sicilian-style pies. The dense and deeply browned crusts are topped with cheese and then sauce, and finished with freshly grated Romano and a lug of good olive oil. Summer is definitely the best time to indulge in a full or half sheet of squares (only novices go for the round) in the open-air courtyard. There’s also an excellent sit-down restaurant in addition to the pizza parlor, but unless you have an “in” with the owners, better prepare yourself for a serious wait.
