  • A Slice of Brooklyn Bus Tours
    Tony Muia takes guests on a "personal journey" that transcends pizza, using the dish as a gateway to an authentic Brooklyn experience. On top of his two favorite pizzerias (Grimaldi's and L&B Spumoni Gardens), the tour incorporates local landmarks and movie locations—it's a love letter to Kings County. For example, he takes the bus past Lenny's Pizza on 86th Street, where John Travolta's character buys a couple of slices during the opening credits of Saturday Night Fever (Tony plays the clip, to boot). As for the pizza itself, Tony makes time to sit and eat like a New Yorker. "We really experience the pizzerias with the locals," he says. But given visitors' time constraints, some things are different (and better): his guests bypass the mammoth line at Grimaldi's, which is as much a legend as the joint's coal-fired brick-oven pies.
