If you’re wondering whether this is the pizza place where Macaulay Culkin’s band played, then you’d be right. The ‘Home Alone’ star’s troupe did try out some of their pizza-themed Velvet Underground numbers here.
Luckily the pizza went down better than the rest of The Pizza Underground’s tour, so the crowd won’t be booing these dough pies.
They’re served fresh from the oven in either 12-inch or 18-inch stonebaked sourdough rounds. Toppings range from classic margherita to the meat-tastic ‘Full House’, with pepperoni, spicy ground beef and flavoursome slices of own-made fennel sausage.
And if you do want to ‘Take a Bite of the Wild Slice’ specials include pulled-pork pizza with apple sauce and crackling. We were too scared to try that one, though: it sounds almost as ill-conceived as Culkin’s dreadful covers act.
Speaking of covers, there are only a couple of tables and most of the trade is takeaway, but the jazz-funk soundtrack and chatty staff made it a fun place to hang out on our visit.
To get you in the mood for all tomorrow’s parties there’s Asahi beer, Brooklyn Summer Ale or wine. In case you need to bottle a band off stage.
