Stunt magician David Blaine loves Di Fara Pizza. He must have gone there after his latest trick, in which he submerged himself in a water-filled bubble:
While in the sphere, Blaine said, "I passed the time by pretending to be an astronaut, floating freely in space."
He dreamed of his favorite restaurant, Di Fara's Pizzeria in the Midwood section of Brooklyn, where he goes after every stunt.
And here's from a wonderful interview Jeff Vandam did with Di Fara proprietor Dom Demarco for the New York Times:
"You want to know something? A lot of people, they pay more for a slice than they have to. That guy David Blaine, the guy who does the magic tricks? He was over here the other day. His bill was $75, but he gave me $100. He comes here all the time."
