Damn, they cropped me out of the photo.

We were looking for something cheap and decent between the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the 5 train, and Yelp led us to Joe and Sal's on Franklin Ave. It looks like it's been there for decades, but the first Yelp review says it opened in 2016. One wall is decorated with friendly notes that customers have written on "Hi my name is.." labels. There's a large portrait of a young Michael Jackson in the back, and a paper plate taped up that says "If you're in a rush, you're in the wrong place." And the pizza is very good. I ordered a mushroom slice and was asked to wait a bit, since a fresh pie was coming out soon. I was rewarded with a super-hot slice, with a sauce that was light and fresh (and too salty), very good cheese and a near-perfect crust. I also had a bit of the Sicilian slice, which I didn't like as much, and I seriously considered getting a spinach roll, because it looked excellent, but that would've been crazy. The menu is pretty extensive (the website doesn't list everything), with a nice selection of whole pies, pastas, and subs. Strongly recommend for a quick bite in the area.

I think Eater is just trolling. (I often think this.) Because referring to a restaurant as "frankly a boring way to eat pizza" is just a dumbass thing to say. I don't need an exciting way to eat pizza.

How much did Pauli Gee's pay for that?

The pizza itself is real, but the setting is dulled, like watching a baseball game on television instead of in the stadium.
I love watching baseball on television. Where I can drink my beer for 1/4 of the price of a beer at the stadium, where I can take a leak in 1/10 of the time it takes at the stadium, and where I can pop my own popcorn.

Speaking of pizza, I was in the neighborhood recently, so I stopped in to the relatively new and relatively touted PQR (Pizza Quadrata Romana), on 2nd Avenue at 85th St.
Ate a couple of slices, half standing and half sitting. They're a take on Roman pizza al taglio, as offered by Bonci at Pizzarium. The crust is not quite as light and fluffy as Bonci's, a little crisper and quite tasty. Lots of different toppings offered. I wouldn't mind eating this crust as pizza bianca, sliced in half horizontally and stuffed with mortadella.
Not a bad spot if you're in the 'hood.

I had one slice there standing up and one sitting down.
I'm sorry, but I enjoyed eating the slice sitting down more.
