I walked into Castor & Pollux in the West Village close to 3 years ago and met the very lovely owner. On her recommendation, I went to Franny's in Brooklyn with Brigham and Hillary during the summer of 2009. I remember eating outside and enjoying the lovely evening. We finished off the night seeing a pseudo-Smiths band at the Bell House with Nick and Chateau. It was a classic evening.
And I knew I needed to return to Franny's to taste the pizza again. I met up with Suvi and Jess last Monday night and barely waited for a table.
Suvi and I split the wood-roasted pork sausage with sweet potatoes but the picture just did not look right enough to post. The pizzas were as good as I remembered. My co-diners couldn't wait for the pictures to be taken before eating.
Suvi and I shared the tomato, mozzarella and sausage.
Jess ate the extra virgin olive oil and sea salt.
I won't compare it to Roberta's because they are different from one another but both are good in their own way.
