Burrata Wood Fired Pizza has been open since 2012 in Eastchester, NY. We don’t live all that close by, so it took us way too long to get here. But on the advice of a good friend, we finally tried it last month and, well, it was so crazy delicious that we came back again last weekend, but this time with 10 additional family members. Even with such a large, unruly (our party included 4 young kids) group, Burrata Wood Fired Pizza came strong.
The execution of the dishes is what makes Burrata Wood Fired Pizza a great restaurant, but before I even get to what you’re putting in your mouth, I must first give the restaurant credit for its menu. It is simple but elegant. There are Italian basics done extremely well on that menu, along side more interesting, less “safe” offerings done just as well. You can visit this restaurant with picky eaters and adventurous eaters, and everyone will find something to make her happy.Read More
Pizzeria La Rosa has been in a small corner of New Rochelle’s South End for a little over a year. It only came onto my radar recently, when I found myself drooling over its feature on an episode of Restaurant Hunter. We got a chance to visit over the long holiday break and, while I’d normally be hesitant to write a blog post based on just one visit, that’s not the case here. Pizzeria La Rosa was delicious, affordable and kid friendly, and its chef and co-owner, Matt DiGesu was so super warm and friendly on our visit, that it’s just love at first sight for me.
You may be saying to yourself, “Eh I live in CT. This sounds too far.” But that’s not really the case because Pizzeria La Rosa is about half a mile from Exit 15 on I-95 and there’s NO ONE in Westchester or Fairfield counties that hasn’t found himself hungry while driving on I-95 before, amirite??Read More
As a parent, you’re going to be around a lot of pizza. So why not make it really GOOD pizza? There are many ways in which the suburbs are lacking when it comes to food, but good pizza is not one of them. We have several solid options around here, from Neapolitan style to bar pies.
One such very solid option is The Parlor in Dobbs Ferry, NY. If you’ve been, you know that it’s very good; AND, you know that you slice your own pizza pie with scissors provided. What kid wouldn’t love that??Read More
