Expert dough flingers at Baroni's Pizza translate New York–ified Italian American cuisine from collective family memory into tasty shared reality, letting diners watch as house-made crusts are dramatically tossed by hand. Flighty pie canvases are then anchored down with mounds of fresh toppings procured from local farms and baked in stone ovens. More than 25 specialty combinations include both white and red varietals, the best-selling Big Baroni ($19 for a 16"), a bevy of chicken- and veggie-centric pies, and four steak-based pizzas. The Spicy S.O.B., topped with rib eye, sautéed onions, banana peppers, and homemade buffalo sauce, is named for the stinging tears of gladness it has been known to inspire ($18.75 for a 16").
Hunger pangs may also be cured with calzones, strombolis, and pizza rolls filled with cheese and a choice of toppings-turned-stuffings. Other menu highlights include pasta dishes such as Pasta Fredo with marinated grilled chicken, smoked bacon, broccoli, and alfredo sauce ($10.25), as well as seven gourmet salads and a slew of sandwiches, wraps, and pitas. Cap off garlicky bonanzas with a sweet, creamy, homemade cannoli ($3) or Led Zeppoles: fried dough dusted with cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, or ground-up unicorn dreams ($4.25).
