Pizza @ Brooklyn Pizza
Few pizzerias in New Orleans capture the thin crust, lightly topped style of a Northeast-style pizza, and Brooklyn Pizza is one of them. The ingredients all taste like something instead of overwhelming one another. Even individual slices (available all the time) are terrific. The dining room is minimal, but the pizza more than makes up for that.
