If you’re looking for a slice of authentic New York pizza, you can’t go wrong with Fascati’s in Brooklyn.
Despite their unassuming storefront, Fascati’s has some of the best slices and pies in the neighborhood. It’s a much different beast than Grimaldi’s a few blocks away, but still delicious in its own way. The slices are simple and quick. In the warmer months, they open up their giant window and sell slices to people passing by, so you don’t even have to go in.
The guys behind the counter are incredibly nice and huge Yankees fans, so the game is always on in the background which is an added bonus (unless the Yankees are losing).
It’s just a few blocks away from the Brooklyn Bridge, so I always treat myself to a slice after a long walk across the bridge.
The most painful time of year is always August, when Fascati’s goes on vacation for the full month. This year, I think I’ll have to start hoarding their pizza in late July!
