I just read some terrible news: My favorite pizzeria, Totonno’s in Coney Island, has suffered major damage from a fire this morning. I’ve had a lot of great pizza in New York, but Totonno’s was, at its best, the best in the city, and it’s also the most consistent of the great joints. I might go so far as to say that Totonno’s is my favorite restaurant, period. Needless to say, I feel awful about the whole thing.
Here are some links to articles about the fire. Each has a little different take on how bad the damage is, but they all agree that the place won’t be up and running anytime soon.

- WNBC has a video
- Another video, this one from WABC
Here’s a picture from my birthday, when I ended up eating a whole pie. Whoops.
Come back soon, Totonno’s!
With Dominick DeMarco breaking his knee, it has been a rough year for NY pizza!
You ain’t kidding, dude.
