    I like Patricia's on Morris Park Avenue. They have all sorts of pizza, some brick oven varieties plus a great chicken marsala. Definitely worth trying.

      OK, I'll bite. At the risk of showing my ignorance, where in NYC is Middletown?

        okay, it may not be what you're looking for, but i have to recommend emilio's on morris park. they have great pasta fagiole (sp?) soup. their pizza slices are gargantuan, and come in multiple kooky nontraditional varieties that are surprisingly delicious. i really like the grilled chicken (nice garlicky smokiness, not greasy) over tangy pink vodka sauce over mozzarella cheese over pizza crust. the chicken francese pizza is also good (but could use a bit more wine or lemon).

        please report back on what you find in your bronx chowing!
