Reaching in to the Slice mailbag, we've got ...
I travel in and out of NYC via LaGuardia and Delta. After reading that the pizza was going to be upgraded from tasteless Sbarro's to an off shoot of Di Fara, I was looking forward to my next rip into LGA.
My first pizza was about 50 years ago on Ave J in Brooklyn at what I believe was Di Fara or the precursor to Di Fara at the very same location. I can still remember the taste of pizza on a cold winter's day as well as ending up with "pizza mouth" from the burn.
Back to LGA. The pizza is better than Sbarro's, but barely. The taste of the sauce was good, sprinkled with grated Parmesan, and that's about it. The pizza was both soggy at the end and dry on the crust. All in all a disappointment. Next time I will opt for a Pat LaFrieda hamburger.
I just thought you all might be interested.
Keep up the good work,
