Am I really that weird? Was I really the only kid who desperately wanted a local pizzeria hangout? There's something just so awesome about a regular spot, a place where without planning it, you'd just know to go there to meet up with your buddies, hang out, and enjoy some Good ol' Grub … basically, I wanted to hit up The Max after study hall. Well listen to me, and listen close … thanks to my buddy Phil I., I've finally found my spot, and ten years in the making, The Good Grub brings to you, Mulberry Street Pizzeria. If you're following me this far, you pretty much know what to expect … a laid-back, nothing fancy, just plain delicious pizzeria … but oh, it's so much more. When you walk in the door, you're met face to face with a carousel-o-pizza-by-the-slice. So many tasty concoctions to choose from … Will it be the white spinach? The BBQ chicken? The eggplant Parmesan? Or the good-old, simple and pure Pepperoni? Whatever it is, after you place your order, they'll through it back in the oven to give it that last blast of fire, bringing the crust to a crunchy-goodness and prepping the taste-bud-ferries to do their magic. As we ordered at the counter and went to pay, we got the reassuring smile … don't worry, pay when you're done … it's my first time here, and already I feel like I'm one step away from being a regular … the wheels are in motion ... the dream is starting to come true. And yeah, I know that I sorta-maybe-kinda threw thin crust pizza under the bus a few weeks back during our post of Prizzi's Piazza's thick crust pie … but in all fairness, it really is a thing of beauty to fold that paper thin NY-slice in half, and create your own hand-formed calzone … that crispy, slightly-salty dough encasing the core of cheese and toppings that are ready to tickle your GRUB bone. As I mentioned above, adding to the greatness that is the pizza, is just the general vibe of Mulberry Street. Autographed celebrity headshots and old-school action movie posters line the walls … it's just that place to kick back, enjoy a slice … or four … and gaze up at Steven Segal's 1991 thriller … Out For Justice … now available on Blue Ray. So I think it goes without saying … see you after class for a slice at the pizzeria … you know which one … it'll be the one dishing out GRUB.
