Eric and I met up and got on the train for what seemed like an eternity getting up to Washington Heights. We talked about the most ridiculous assortment of shit. People abandoning their houses, being an exterminator, leaving your dead friends phone numbers in your phone because you can't bring yourself to delete them, etc. Hangover talk. We got out of the train at 168th Street and were standing in front of Famiglia Pizza. I was like, "I think this is a chain..." but Eric was all, "Fuck it I'm hungry," and walked in.
This place looks like it's in a mall. Because it is a chain. Look at the website. They are in Anchorage, Alaska. They are at airports. But I guess maybe I can visit one location from each chain as a compromise. I won't go to another Famiglia ever again in my life, but this one, whatever. The slice:
Duh, it sucked. I don't even need to tell you that. Probably the best of any chain, though. I'll take this over Dominoes, Pizza Hut or Papa John's any day. This pizza may be as mediocre and soulless as the current, semi-ironic Yacht Rock revival among communities of young urban honkies, but at least it's real pizza.
That's a sad looking sliceReplyDelete
You can also get it at the new Yankee Stadium. Kinda lame that the Yankees went that route.ReplyDelete
there's also one on the corner of mamaroneck ave. and i wanna say maple st. in white plains.ReplyDelete
i would say it's more like sbarro's (not that i've really ever eaten from either) than papa john's and dominos. Chain pizza is different than fast food pizza, ya know?
If you look at the large cheese-blister you will see a face... like a happy killer-klown face.... and damn... I just spotted another face on the left... like a man screaming with fright.ReplyDelete
What is wrong with me???
"pretty sure this is a chain..." what a noob... don't front like you ain't from westchester and you had'nt hit up the one in white plains oh say a dozen times during your teenage yearsReplyDelete
Definitely a chain, although infant sized compared to Pizza Hut and Dominoes. They evenhave a couple of concessions at rest stops on the NYS Thruway. They charge twice as much there per slice, and there is usually a line not worth waiting on.ReplyDelete
I must comment that this pie is not nearly as bad as Sbarro's, which is, in my opinion, inedible. The only time I would ever eat Sbarro's is if it was the only place open at an airport if I am between planes, and I am figuratively starving to death, a happenstance that occurs surprisingly frequently.
