CARROLL GARDENS, BROOKLYN NY
Word on the street has it that Mark Iacono of Lucali Pizza in Carroll Gardens,
Brooklyn, New York is set to open his first Slice Shop near to famed Pizzeria Lucali.
Iacono is the darly of America and the World's hottest celebrities, New Yorker's and Foodie mavens of New York and America.
Recent reports state that Iacono is opening a slice shop which will be called Baby Luc's
at 387 Court Street, a couple blocks from Lucali. Iacono has yet to confirm this. Pizza mavens are sure to be happy that they'll be able to roll up and merely get a couple of slices without going the the stiff rigors of securing a table at Lucali, a feat though not as hard as getting an almost impossible reservation at Rao's Italian Restaurant in East Harlem New York. "No," as the late great Frankie No (Frank Pellegrino Senior) used to say, "No, I don't have a table," thus the nickname Frankie No. No it's not as hard to get a table at Lucali's as the impossible task of getting a table at Rao's, which you can't, it is no easy feat getting a table at Lucali's, so being able to go and get a couple slices at iacono's forthcoming slice shop is happy news to many. Though we are sure there will be lines out of Bay Luc's doors, it should be a lot easy to get yourself some Pizza. "Thank you Mar."
Anyway this is one guy (of many) that is happy at the prospect and looking forward to going to Mark Iacono's new place. And while I'm at it, being so close I will certainly get one of my most beloved food items in all of New York, a Vastedda Sandwich at Ferdinando's on nearby Union Street when I get my slice of Pizza at Baby Luc's, it will be an awesome Brooklyn Italian Double Header of Ferdinado's awesome Vasteddi (Beef Spleen Sandwiches), and a couple slices of pizza from Mark place. And while I'm at it, I think I'll have to make it a Carroll Gardens Triple Header and get a Cannoli and some Italian Cookies at Mazzola Bakery on Henry Street. "Now that's what I call eating." Can't wait.
