L&B Spumoni Gardens

2725 86th St
Brooklyn, NY 11223


In the land of floppy triangles, the square-shaped pizza is king. L&B Spumoni Gardens is one of those great historic pizzerias peculiar to Brooklyn, but L&B serves a uniquely satisfying Sicilian slice (familiarly called a "square" here): thick slabs of crust, with a layer of mozzarella below a hefty serving of tomato sauce and olive oil with a sprinkling of Pecorino Romano cheese. In a word: perfection. There's technically an adjoining restaurant at L&B, too, where you can get a selection of heroes, pasta dishes and other entrées—but why would you do a crazy thing like that when you can sit outside at the shaded picnic tables, gobbling squares and pistachio spumoni?
