They don’t make ’em like this anymore. At Sam’s, established in 1930, the stained-wood walls are accented by pink silk flowers and the booths are upholstered in candy-red vinyl. Your waiter will likely greet you with a booming “How youse doin’?” before placing the giant menu in your hands. Sam’s crisp brick-oven pizza is the way to go, though old-school Italian classics (chicken cacciatore, veal scaloppine, baked ziti) are fine choices too. Carbophobes will have a hard time devising a protein-only meal. But then, why would you want to?
