Frank Pepe Pizzeria comes to Yonkers --- Sat, 07/25/09 11:14 AM (permalink)
Yonkers is becoming a place to go to,  instead of come from.
 
Central Park Ave in Yonkers has a new building going up that will house-----
 
----(Da-Da)-----------------Frank Pepe's Pizzeria -------
 
Right uppa the street from Uno 1 ---- New Haven vs Chicago.
 
Lotsa dough will be kneeded ------ but that's good for the business. 
The economy of Yonkers issa lookin good.

      According to their website , they're going to open sometime this fall. As we're going back for a visit in early Sept., I have a feeling that we're not going to be able to get a taste on this visit.

        They probably will stay in the Northeast but we sure could use a pizza joint like this in SW Ohio!!!!!

          I am going back in Sept also------as a matter of fact that is how I found out about Pepe moving into a high class neighborhood.  

          I asked Mary if we should take your advice about Xavier's place in Yonkers------it may be a budget buster though. 

          Maybe we will have a Jasper night at Frank Pepe's new joint.

            My guess is a place that served tomato pies like Frank Pepe's wouldn't last a year in Ohio. Ohioans would think there was something wrong with them.

                  The clam pie was very good, but the idea of visiting a pizzeria as good as Pepe’s and walking away without trying tomato sauce would be unthinkable. The Original Tomato Pie with Mozzarella ($14.50) and sausage ($3.55 extra) was even more satisfying, with course cuts of sausage and exactly the right ratio of robust tomato sauce to cheese, which nearly hit the edge of the pie. This was my third trip to Pepe’s, and after my latest visit, it’s looking like August 2008 was an unfortunate hiccup. There’s little doubt that Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana belongs in the pizza Pantheon.

                    Ohioans just do not know what great pizza is supposed to be like I guess, except for those citizens who have settled there from the northeast and other parts of the country where great pizza is the rule and not the exception!

                      I have to both laugh and cry. When I used to go the Pepe's all the time a plain was 40-cents, and if you wanted it with mozzarella it was 60-cents. With mozzarell and sausage -- 80-cents.

                        I used to pay 35 cents for a big slice of regular cheese and tomato sauce pizza in my favorite Yonkers pizzeria on Kimball Ave back in the late 50s and early 60s.

                          [Edit]

                          A: A good and really large slice of pizza with the olive oil running down your arm would cost in Bronx NY 25 cents maybe 30 cents. and worth every penny, not like these so called pizzerias in Connecticut

                              ---60 cent pizza was worth every cent.  But, I was only making $75 a week then and I'm not sure my wife and I could afford a whole pie.

                                Hey! As a teenager in NY during the 50's, a slice almost anywhere was only .25!

                                        We do have some pizza joints in the area that resemble NY pizza pies.

                                        They come close enough so that one does not forget what pizza was meant to taste like.

                                          And we can get baguettes from Toronto that remind us of great French and Italian bread we used to eat in Yonkers growing up.

                                          And Panera Bread sells a damn good sourdough baguette.

                                          Still looking though for a bakery that sells a NY Jewish rye bread that taste likes home.

                                            Still looking though for a bakery that sells a NY Jewish rye bread that taste likes home.


                                            Block's Bagels, East Broad Street, Columbus.
                                             
                                            Not corn rye, though.

                                              Marx Bagels in Blue Ash makes it too but the dough is nothing like I remember it to be in NY - crusty and very chewy with caraway seeds and smells like heaven.

                                                A story today from local media:

                                                Note to Frank Pepe's: Do you know where Yonkers gets their water from? The New York City public water supply. Yaaay! No need to import from New Haven.

                                                  Per this , they're going to open on Nov. 2nd. So the ancient mariner & I don't get a chance to do a trip report in Sept.

                                                    November 2nd----Ma-rone-----it is cold weather time in Yonkers in November ---I'll bet it goes down below 75 some nights----soooooo in November Brother Cavandre and I shall be back in the Sunshine State.   Ah yes, but I shall be in New Haven at Frank Pepe's original hang out in August--------which is only a few days away.

                                                     All-a-so just so I don't forget what good pizza is all about Mary and i will visit the Colonly Inn in Stamford during September. 

                                                    I think the good Jewish Rye Bread, and NY Style Hard Rolls baking people should have fleets of jets dropping off care packages throughout the country.  Like when Frankie yusta have Eye-trall-ion bread sent from Hoboken to Palm Springs every week.  There are somethings in life ya gotta have.

                                                      The Jewish Rye travels OK, but not the Hard Roll. By 3pm of the day it's baked, it's already a ghost of what it was earlier in the day & then goes downhill rapidly.

                                                        I saw on another board that there are signs in front of the place confirming the Nov. 2nd opening.
