Towards the end of the last year, my friends thought that we weren't hanging out enough. It's true, we weren't. So they started Tuesday night get-togethers. Every Tuesday, we'll pick a bar to drink, eat, and hang out for a couple of hours. Whomever can make it will attend. If you're busy, it's okay. There's always next week. So this is Tuesday Nights on Tasty Eating where you will find bars that serve food and how we like them.
This week, we headed out to: John's of Bleecker Street
We started off the night with a couple of pitchers of beer ($17) and some salad ($6.50). Both simple and exactly what we expected, we were satisfied.
And then the pizza started rolling out in their glory. First, one of their specials (#52 or something like that ~$22) which pretty much had everything on it from sausage, meatballs, pepperoni, olives, green peppers, and mushrooms. This was pretty good. All that meat was nicely balanced with the vegetables. Also, I liked that although there were a lot of topping, the crust didn't fail to hold them. No fork and knife here. All hands, baby.
A bit of advice for large groups: they won't sit you until your whole party has arrived. However, we did sit with one person missing because we said we would order right away. Also, if you come as a large party and stand in line, chances are you'll be able to skip some people ahead of you. They do like to sit down large groups first. But, if you can't get a group together, a large pizza could feed 2 people with healthy appetites.
