Lucali in Carroll Gardens
My family and the beautiful Castronovo family had a stupendous meal the other night....Much has been said about this new Carroll Gardens pizza place--pizza is SERIOUS business in New York and Lucali is SERIOUS, I MEAN, mouth watering, crunchy, perfectly thin, exquisitely sauced & the fresh Mozzarella is all you need to die and go to pizza heaven. I can't even get into the ricotta calzone cuz I might start to cry; it bordered on dessert, OK?!@#? We all sat at a giant wood table, feeling as if we were in some tiny town in Italy in the 1800's: twenty-foot ceilings with a dim glow emanating from the massive hand-made brick oven and beautifully melted candles on all the tabletops. Now, should we talk about how super nice everyone was? SO NICE!...the kinda nice that makes you proud to live in the neighborhood (or next door at least). Mark even made our girl (Addie, 2) a little mini pizza (fresh mozzarella and all!). Can you tell I am in love? I might just give up my sleazy pizza ways and only eat at Lucali...I'm serious.
PS If you dig wine with your meal make sure to bring a bottle or two to wash away each delectable bite! (oh, this will lead me to my next LONG overdue post)
