There is a "pizza party" at Brooklyn Central on 5th Ave. where the "old school" meets the "new school" in a perfect marriage of flavor. The menu at Brooklyn Central offers traditional pizzas with imported ingredients or "new fangled" pizzas with local ingredients. Friendly service offers delicious "wood fired" Neapolitan pies which are pillowy and slightly charred. I started with a kale salad with candied pecans and citrus with some parmesan($9). The salad was fresh, and flavorful offering a tasty tease before the main event. The Colony pie(pictured) is a new school pie. Tomatoes, local mozzarella, local pepperoni, pickled chilies and honey($15). Amazing, pillowy pie, porkly, spicy and balanced with the sweetness of the honey. The menu here is very well thought out and offers something for everyone.
