Bravo Pizza: "These places just get worse and worse."
If you recall, way back in the day (in April) when I ate pizza with my friend Jeff Lewis, in the wilds of Midtown, Bravo Pizza was sort of bad. I subsequently visited in another Bravo location with three quarters of Jacob The Terrible way back in the summer of 2010, and it was a little worse. And then last week I ate at a third Bravo Pizza with my friend Tonie from Berlin and it was straight up disgusting! This one was like that one.
This slice looked wet and disgusting. The sauce poking through like seeping blood at the top of the slice was the color of dollar store tomato soup and it didn't taste no better. Joe took one bite and said, "yep... that's bad." and then just sat at the table shaking his head while I took further tentative bites. This slice was totally disgusting and so not worth it ever. Unless...
The thing about this place is that they have this asinine system where you order your pizza at the front of the of the store, and pay in the back, which means you could, THEORETICALLY, get your slice at the front of the place, eat it in the middle, and walk back out the front without ever enter the back area of the establishment. So if you want to buy a decent slice of pizza, go to Pizza Paradise around the corner, but if you want a shitty slice of pizza "for free," go here.
