Skeeter - John The Baker and Mario the Baker..All interrelated cousins, brothers, in-breds, whatever. If you go at lunch, they have a special where you get an individual pie (thin..get their sausage) along with the star of the show..Their incredible garlic rolls. No, these are not those lousy knots/twists whatever..These are nothing like that! The best I have ever had. I doubt you will find these in NJ/NYC.
I've never found them any place else than in these restaurants from this particular family. Your pizza (especially for you) will be an after thought. I would not order anything else at Mario's or John The Baker, but the pizza and the garlic rolls.
Try Anthony's wings. They are really special. Made with fresh rosemary, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Just give them a shot one time. And no, this is Florida and not New Haven or Manhattan. But, Anthony's is good enough for a lot of us transplants...Hey, aside from Cuban food, BBQ and perhaps seafood, nothing is going to compare to NYC in Florida is it?
Incidently, if you are near Anthony's again on Federal Highway in Ft. Lauderdale, head north and go to Tom Jenkin's for some of the best BBQ you will ever have. Next to Arthur Bryant's and Big Bob Gibson's, its the best I've ever had. That will most likely be better than NYC! You might like Tark's, too.
One other place you will like coming from Jeerzee...The Rustic Inn on Griffin Road (get the golden crabs if they have them) I don't think you are going to find a place like this in NJ/NY either.
