What do you like about the St. Louis style pizza you found in New York? What's different about it?

This is it. It's the "Saint Louie" pizza from Speedy Romeo in Brooklyn, which was right up the street from me. The two guys that own it (or at least one for sure) are Missouri guys, but they might be from Kansas City rather than St. Louis. In my opinion, the crust is better and the sauce has higher quality tomatoes. It's their traditional Neopolitan crust that's a bit fluffier and dry, whereas the traditional St. Louis style crust from Imo's is relatively denser, more cracker-ish, and more oily. It's like it got steamrolled. But the nice thing about the one at Speedy Romeo is that it's very neutral tasting, so the cheese is more prominent. They also offer pickled chilis on your table which I take full advantage of.

Perfect day.

Can't wait to see you at the restaurant. Heading there now!

That's a very fluffy crust; the crackerish crust on the Imo's pizza is one of my favorite parts. Still, I'll make sure to try Speedy Romeo next time I'm in Brooklyn.

You should treat yourselves to some Imo's!

11 years ago I was on a first date and with a dinner of quail and venison at a restaurant at a W Hotel in NYC. We then headed to uptown for a quick stop at Opal's uptown to meet up with some of her friends who were at a birthday party. Everyone then decided the Village Idiot (which is the greatest bar that has ever existed) was a great idea, where I educated everyone (all city girls) on the difference in bourbons (over numerous pitchers of beer and shots) and classic country music (Conway Twitty, David Allen Coe, and Hank Williams Jr.) until the bar made everyone leave at 4. Too much alcohol was consumed by all.... but somehow that was my last first date.

Through the years there have been ups, downs and everything in between. Somehow, no matter how bad the fight, the things said, or me just being a general ass (I am a raging ass at times), we are still here. After all this time, I can't imagine anyone else being in her place. When I fall, she is there to help me up... even if I deserve to be left in a heap. When I am crushed and depressed, she is there with a drink and to tell me that things are not hopeless. No matter what, she is always there for me, my best friend and partner in crime.

This year looks to be a big one for us and I hope I can live up to being the man and husband she deserves.

If I had a vagina, the tear that welled up in my eye would have just fallen.

I tried to see if anyone in chicago would sell a st louis style pizza.
Nobody does, but I actually kind of like the place that people say comes the closest.

Unfortunately the modifications that they suggest to make it more authentic make it sound like a terrible pizza (namely, scrape the cheese off and replace it with white american cheese and then slide that whole mess off the crust and on to a piece of cardboard that has been sauced with ketchup)

Okay, I will admit I literally lol'ed at that.

I think they use zoning to keep St. Louis style pizza out of Chicago because they know it will "catch on like wildfire" and take over the local scene (rent-seeking behavior).

I never liked the cracker crusts. Donato's had them around where I grew up. Never could get into the pizza. Need some crust. Plus what am I gonna give the Albert? (my dog who loves pizza crusts).

EDIT: I do love me some Tony's frozen pizza for nostalgia sake. I had one every Saturday growing up.
