brooklyn star and paulie gee's

Biscuits and sausage gravy and scrambled eggs from Brooklyn Star

This doesn't look as good as it tasted, although I think it was probably sitting on the counter for a little bit before it was brought to us, it wasn't as hot as I wanted it to be. The gravy was really rich and creamy, and there was cheese on the biscuit too, so it was a really heavy but delicious lunch. The biscuits were also nice and buttery, right in between flaky and crumbly, but that might have just been the gravy in action. I would prefer the eggs on the side next time though.

Suerynn's torta: pork sausage, refried beans, avocado, pickled onion, over hard egg

Oona's pizza from Paulie Gee's: ricotta, arugula, 2 kinds of sausage, one of which was a fennel sausage

Paulie Gee's has so many kinds of interesting pizzas (even one with pickled grapes??) and in my experience, they've been really good. The best one so far is the pepperoni one with the spicy honey, but I forget what it's called. David ordered it but I accidentally deleted the picture. Pizza crust is maybe my 2nd favorite part of pizza so I ate Oona's crusts. Gross? Paulie Gee's crust is perfectly chewy and soft on the inside, and just a little crispy on the outside.

The "cheek corea" salad" chick peas, pasta, escarole, sliced red onion, olive oil, lemon juice and oven crisped berkshire guanciale

I had to be that loser to order a salad in a pizza place. Not because I didn't want pizza, but I had already eaten biscuits and gravy earlier in the day and I didnt think I should have that much more dairy :-(. But I ordered this salad because it sounded great and also, even when I say I'm not hungry and can't eat, if I'm presented with options, I usually don't say no. It was really simple and light, which was balanced so well with the guanciale. I would order this next time just for the pork.
