That looks like Dominos.

Need to try Alex and Theresas - I think they live in your nabe Mike. We went there on afternoon for quick slices and a waiter came out to read the specials. I think you can only do “casual” before a certain time there?

Got to see him in action in 2010, my review is linked (I used to be Bmateo): Stoked about a Pizza adventure (Posts 8 & 9 for the pictures)

This man was "in the zone". He took pizzas out of the oven with his bare hands. Part of it was "the experience", but I still have high hopes for this one.

We ate at Alex and Teresa's last night but did not have pizza. Looks like they planned on a light evening but got hit by a few large parties. Service was affected but they called someone in to help. Food was good, Alex is funny.

I watched him once and everyone just watched in silence. He is revered.

They were shut down by the health department numerous times, partially because he didn't wear gloves, and he also kept the basil on the windowsill. I'm sure I've eaten under much worse conditions.

Anyone know if Di Fara is considered coal fired or brick oven? I'm just curious as I don't think I ever made it there. I didn't see it mentioned on their original site...
I'm hoping the price of a pie will be lower here. $30 seems a lot, even for NY!

The one in Brooklyn is NOT coal fired, it's a traditional pizza oven, pictured below. (lack of gloves noted)

I think it was bad timing (or perhaps him wincing from the heat). I was the one who took the picture, he didn't mind. This dude was/is stoic. He went at his own pace, nothing flustered him.

As others who have seen him work will say, he's a living legend in the pizza world. Not his first photo, I'm sure.
