re: Stephen Kaye
Absolutely there's a great restaurant, Dominick's.
Cash only, no menus, family-style seating. Try going
really early or a bit later as I've always had to wait
for a table. Just tell them what you want or let them
order for you.
For dessert, there's a pastry shop right next door

In our opinion, as wellas that of friends, Dominick's
on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx has got to be one of the
most overrated restaurants we ever encountered. We've
found the food mediocre at best, and have always
marveled at the long lines in the street waiting to get
a table. Obviously tourists from Westchester or God
knows where; the locals stay away.
The only decent places in the Arthur Avenue
1. Tony & Tina's Pizzeria (only for Albanian
burek, which tastes like those one finds in the
2. Pizzeria Margherita (no phone) on E. 187 St.
next to a bakery. Pasta sauce is made from
scratch and one needn't ask for it 'al dente'.
When the owner/chef is there, he will cook
anything. He is fr and a superb cook.om the Bari
3. Gurre. Albanians only. From the 10 seconds I
spent inside, the aroma implied a master chef at
large. But no outsiders are permitted.
The other restaurants are cliche
Italian-American: Albanian waiters, boring menu,
South American cooks. Not bad but not good.
