On July 8, 2010 Jeff Eats got the following email…
“Hi Jeff, I was hoping I could get u 2 do a review? I have reviews from worstpizza.com, Urbanspoon, Boca Magazine, we where on channel 12 news and many others. If u have any questions u can call me Alan 305-747-6330.”
About an hour ago, I gave “mom & pop–red sauce” pizza joint, Authentic Brooklyn Pizza a shot. Authentic’s menu is loaded and I do mean loaded with all kinds of special pizza combinations. In addition there are calzones, soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas, meat-seafood-chicken entrees. When I arrived, the restaurant was busy with 6 booths filled and my table for 2. As I waited for my large plain pizza to arrive, I “noticed” some real- nice looking subs, calzones and pizzas coming out of the kitchen.
Based on the extensive menu, the fact that the joint was busy, the dynamite review that my pals at www.worstpizza.com had given this joint’s pizza and the “visual”— I thought that I would soon be devouring some outrageously good pizza…but au contraire—the pizza that I got was nothing special. The sauce was kinda bland–the crust wasn’t crispy and was flakey like a croissant.
Based on the pizza “alone”- I wouldn’t be running back to this joint so fast.
As I mentioned, prior to my sojourn to Authentic Brooklyn Pizza–I did some checking and took a look at www.worstpizza.com…I also checked-out Urbanspoon and Boca Raton Magazine and the “reviews” on these sites were good for this joint.
So it only goes to show, “different strokes for different folks.” Just maybe I caught an “off day”…but that’s the way this review game is played.
Alan, (the owner): For now, that’s the best I can do for you in the review department. Feel free to write- me and tell me what “i might be missing.”
