Re: “It's More Than Just Dynamite Sandwiches That Keep Fans Coming Back to Express Deli

Pierre said "Hello my friend!" on my first visit 15 years ago and again every time since. Always a smile and a handshake and the most positive outlook on life in general. The food is always great and quickly became the default location when the office couldn't decide where to get lunch from. When we mentioned that we were having trouble with a client in the Middle East, Pierre quickly asked "What's the address? I'll be there in 5 minutes." He came to our office, picked up the phone and had the issue cleared up in two minutes and we got the sale. He would accept nothing but our gratitude for his help. We bought corned beef for 30 for our St Patrick's Day party every year which got rave reviews from our Irish family and friends. When we bought a restaurant and needed to now cook 300 pounds of corned beef, we again asked Pierre for guidance and he was again happy to help. You can buy a sandwich anywhere but there are few that can be this genuine of a good person on both sides of the counter.

Re: “It's Hard Not to Love George's Kitchen, a Westside Mainstay for Almost 40 Years

Don't forget those great platters of fried fish, a wonderful offering that is often lost in a sea (excuse the pun) of other neighborhood fish fries at this time of year.

Re: “Suzy Pacifico, Server at Guarino's for Half of Its 100 Years

Suzy (Mary) Pacifico is am amazing strong women who lives to touch others hearts through food. As a young wife I moved in the home next door to her and she and her family quickly became like an extension of mine. One of my fondest memories is a day when I was outside in the yard all day working and she came over with a enough food to feed a small village. Pasta, chicken piccata, potatoes, green beans, and other good eats, nicely separated in little foils boats within a huge foil tray pan. It was nothing unusual for her to invite my husband and I for their family dinners. Her husband Joe taught my husband to grow a garden and drink homemade wine. To say they are good people would be an understatement. And that chicken piccata she makes us to die for! Miss you all and am so blessed to have felt your love! Marcy & Steve Feather

Re: “Lucy Brings Tasty Ethiopian to Old Brooklyn in an Odd Setting

We enjoyed the food at Lucy both meat and vegetarian. We did not mind the shared bar space. The music videos that were playing showed traditional Ethiopian dancing which was a fun and interesting addition to our experience. The owner stopped by to make sure we enjoyed our meal. We would definitely go back again.

Re: “It's Hard Not to Love George's Kitchen, a Westside Mainstay for Almost 40 Years

It seems as though it's been longer than 40 years. As a very young kid, my dad would work a lot of twelve hour shifts at American Tank And Fabricating just down the road from Georges Kitchen. When working twelve hours the company would buy their employees dinner from Georges and my dad would get two burgers and fries and bring them home for my sister and me. That had to have been as early as the late sixties, early seventies.

Re: “Detroit-Shoreway Pizza Joint Il Rione Wants to Revive Cleveland's Littler Italy

idk, excellent gourmet pizza definitely has a place in this city. but more affordable pizza is what REALLY makes a neighborhood spot. I like the pizza slices at XYZ and it would be great if you could get them at a pizza shop and not a ferociously busy bar. We need more shops like Pizza Roma. If there was like, Pizza Roma but also with a pleasant low key dinner atmosphere and beer for $4 or less, I'd be eating out every time I went to the Detroit-Shoreway area.

Re: “Detroit-Shoreway Pizza Joint Il Rione Wants to Revive Cleveland's Littler Italy

My wife used to go to NYC for business a lot, and she LOVES New York-style pizza.
Took one look at the prices on the menu and said:
"No f'kin way...fuhgeddaboudit....not even at four o'clock on a Tuesday afternoon...."
Have to agree...stand around or go to another bar (WTF?) and get buzzed?
While waiting for a table?
Ya gotta be kiddin' me, pal...not for a pizza...even one that sounds as good as these...

We live around the corner and Il Rione is a welcome addition to our neighborhood. Excellent pizza and kind service. We love that there is NO TV - hopefully that's a trend that more places will pick up on!
