Three of Cups

Tastes better the next day.

Overrated by the way. Took a person's recommend. Perhaps it is simply not the style of pizza that my tongue prefers. It is somewhat thin crust, but more in the direction of what I expect from nuevo-esque places.

Very nice atmosphere.

The real treat is downstairs, whether you go for the 3 dollar PBR or their tap selections.

Frank Restaurant relative's pizza place is near this place, am I correct.

I have yet to check that place out, for it never comes to my mind, when I am in the area thinking to eat.

  1. I never found incredible pizza slices in your neck of the woods (Woodhaven-Howard Beach)... there's that walk-in place on the south side of Jamaica just west of Woodhaven that's not bad, D'Aleos:

    Those 2 places in HB that everyone raves about, never craved going back to them.

      pizza is over rated by the way.

      I rarely eat the thing.

      Be it anywhere.

      But I have found good pizza in Bensonhurst.

      One shop poses as old, but the new owners, when they arrived just kept the very old place old, and the pizza is horrible.

      That is open very late, near to the train station 18th (N).

      The other is true to its old decor, as the same owner as old days, speaks Italian.

      Bensolnhurst is still breathing Italian.

      One shoe store I stopped into, there was a woman customer, and the shoe salesman, having a dialogue in Italian.

      Don't let the lousy pizza at the old 'sold to other' venue, or all the Chinese signs make you think otherwise.

        New Park pizza is excellent. but then again this is the Manhattan Board

        1. re: foodwhisperer

          I do not know about New Park Pizza....and I am eagerly awaiting Parking Lot Pizza...

          But since I live in NYC, Parking Lots are outnumbered, by much.

          Imagine a life of your home doorway to the car seat, to the highway, to the parking lot. What a limited existence, all for the melting of the ice in the north.

          No one can give up the car, because they would have all these empty parking lots.

          But pizza, is around every corner, in the NYC.

            it's around every corner, but it's not equally good ... I'm not a big fan of New Park... actually like the place across and down the street better, but the cheese often slides off of it. Quite greasy too, but tasty...

            where's your favorites Jonk?

            1. re: TombstoneShadow

              that is difficult.

              I did like a place that closed, Houston and Bowery. Pulino's.

              Since, I shall scout out a Brooklyn venue that is long talked about.

              Thin crust, is a must, though for simple on the go, I do like A and L Bensonhurst.

              Johnny's & Vinny's is garbage. That is down the block.

              It seems bought from the original owners, or even bought several times, yet they keep the old-look about it, and that makes it a lie, for it makes one think that this is a classic place, still with its original Italian owners.

              Worst pizza I had ever in brooklyn.
