It's always a controversial topic when you ask someone about the best pizza or the best burger...
Readers of Serious Eats, SliceNY or A Hamburger Today know that there's no shortage of new information, outting of poseurs, and praises sung to these foods we love.
Two quick hits:
1. The debate about sending back an overcooked burger and the retrospective on burgers of 2008 reminded me of the stunningly good burger I had on my birthday - at Neptune Oyster!
That's right. That's why I forget about how good they are there. But really, this is a godsend. You know those nights when you want to go eat with a mixed group? Some who want - must have seafood - and others who don't eat it or won't eat it. Neptune's your spot.
- My votes for Boston's Best Burgers: Neptune Oyster, Pop's, Kingston Station.
2. From SliceNY - new data uncovered about whether Boston or New York first served pizza.
- Pizza - that's Amore!
- I'm going to call best pizza in Boston: Emma's, Picco...And SliceNY noticed my last post on Emma's and it started another great thread.
And for New York readers:
The NYT reports that an Italian pizza school is opening in NYC in February. This will be sure to stir up the debates!
A fun detour for me, hope it was good for you too!
