You should probably know where your closest neighborhood slice place is like it’s an emergency exit on a plane (even if it may be behind you). In Crown Heights, that place is Brooklyn Pizza Crew on Nostrand Avenue. BPC is from the team behind Williamsburg Pizza and like that spot, there are always a mix of thin-crust square and round slices available, but we like the Sophia Loren the best. It’s made with a ton of basil and tomatoes on it, and big patches of mozzarella that look like the cartoon version of spilled white paint.

A Carroll Gardens neighborhood seafood gem, where the chef might throw a lobster at you. God bless this city.
