Levante is a modern space in LIC serving a long menu of Neapolitan pizzas, pastas, salads, and more Italian food. But you come here for the pizza, which ranges from a simple spicy pepperoni (their best one) to a burrata, mozzarella, mushroom, and truffle pie. It’s good pizza (not great pizza), and it’s also a little pricey. But if you’re in the neighborhood and want to eat a pizza at the bar, this place would work well. At the moment, they don’t have a liquor license.

John Brown Smokehouse
While we enjoyed our time with John Brown Smokehouse, we didn’t quite go crazy over the BBQ the way others have. Though if you and your crew appreciate trays full of BBQ and massive bootfuls of beer, John Brown should be on the radar.
