Brooklyn Boy Comes Back Home For a Visit!
Born and bred, Brooklyn! Los Angeleno now (the Italian food sucks!) -- going back to NYC and wanna visit the Old World for a great italian meal. I hear that IL COLESEO is fantastic -- an Italian friend of mine swears by it.. is it really still great??? Any other ideas? Bensonhurst or Bay Ridge or Park Slope (I hear al di la, you can wait for hours and the food is hit or miss).... If you guys need ideas for LA, hit me up. I'll return the favor if you visit in the near future. Thanks guys... Joey
You can't go wrong with Queen on Court Street in downtown Brooklyn. Order from the daily special menu (and don't miss the fresh mozzarella, their signature dish), and enjoy a nice bottle of Italian wine.
Do a search here on the Outer Boroughs board for Queen and you'll see what I mean.
I do not think they will closing Nathans in Coney because I believe the building is a landmark.
If you are looking for good spots in Bensonhurst, I second La Palina and also recommend Ortobello restaurant on 6401 Bay Parkway. Excellent food for a reasonable price. You'll feel like you are in a time warp when you goto this place!
