Famed Brooklyn Pizzeria L&B Spumoni Gardens Opening 2nd Location

Spumoni GardensLast week I wrote about Una Pizza Napoletana expanding with a second location and now a famed Brooklyn pizzeria will be following suit.

In the near future, you’ll be able to get L&B Spumoni Gardens saucy squares at a new location in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

The 80 year-old pizzeria, famed for their squares and spumoni will be expanding for the first time.Spumoni GardensL&B Spumoni Gardens is most famous for their pillowy squares which feature the sauce on the top, cheese on the bottom. I can count the amount of times I’ve ordered a regular slice there on one hand. (I only ordered it a few times for Lucas since he didn’t want saucy pizza.)

At the Gravesend location, there’s lots of outdoor seating, a walk-up window where you can get spumoni, Italian ices and ice cream. If you’re looking for a sit-down meal of Italian food, there’s also a restaurant.

What’s interesting about the upcoming new location is that it will be just a stone’s throw from two legendary pizzerias, the original Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s (who recently expanded with a second location a couple of blocks away).

At first I thought it sounded odd that Spumoni Gardens would open directly across the street from the other two shops but the more I thought about it, the more genius the idea sounded. Let me explain…

Juliana’s and Grimaldi’s are places where you can only order a pie. There are no slices served and lines can get pretty crazy at these shops which are located next door to each other.

At Spumoni Gardens, you can order a slice. My guess is that many visitors and tourists coming to DUMBO for Juliana’s or Grimaldi’s will also now opt to grab a slice at Spumoni Gardens. Let’s say you’re waiting on a long line, waiting for some famous pizza. While you wait, maybe your buddy runs across the street to grab a few slices of the famed squares!

There was no information as to when the new location of L&B Spumoni Gardens would be opening but I’ll definitely stop by to see how it compares to the original once it does.
