Mike and Tony's in South Slope
- Jessica Nepomuceno
As a South Sloper, I can't help but be curious about
the new-ish Italian restaurant that opened recently on
6th Avenue and, I think, 11th St. (could be off by 1 or
Any word on it? Is it just another red sauce joint,
and if it is, does it at least do THAT well? I have
only managed to stop by when the kitchen has been
closed, but it looks like the place has quickly
attracted a tight little group of regulars.
Please post a followup if you have actually eaten there
(rather than gotten tipsy on red wine like I have).
Not Mike and Tony's which is the steak place owed by
the Cucina partners, but COUSIN TONY'S, at 12th St.And
6th Ave. I live at 10th and 6th, so I have eaten there
and got carry-out several times. At first it was great,
a real find, then it got very crowded and they seem to
have not been able to keep up. It is nice and
reasonably priced and the protions are huge, but the
last few times there have been a bit of a
disappointment for me.
It is certainly better than say Tutta Pasta or Aunt
Suzie's, and you may get a good night, which is really
good when you do.

It's me, er, JEssica Nepomuceno, who made the original post. Anyway, you're right, I messed up the name. But I did stop by for dinner one slow night...I had a hankering for lasagna. NASTY NASTY NASTY! Extremely gloppy bechemal sauce, tepid and soggy pasta. Lame all around. The service was very good, however, considering there were several large parties there.
