After lunch #1, we hopped back onto the bus and had a driving tour of some neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Tony filled us in on some Brooklyn history and also showed us tidbits of films shot around the area.
Before we knew it we were at lunch spot #2 - L&B Spumoni Gardens! We tried Neapolitan-style pizza at Grimaldi's and now we were up to try L&B's Sicilian-style pizza to see which one wins us over. At L&B, the cheese is actually underneath the sauce. We each got 2 slices of pizza and soft drinks, but this pizza is so much thicker! I wound up getting so full I took my 2nd slice to go.

And if you're wondering if Neapolitan or Sicilian pizza won my heart over... I vote Neapolitan! Both were delicious in their own right, but I'm a fan of brick-oven pizza. Can't beat the crust! But I'm curious, what rocks your boat?
Piggy says yes (to all three!)!
