The overwhelming favorite to become New York City's next mayor has weighed in on the city's most divisive topic. Bill de Blasio has announced he is a Di Fara's man. During a Reddit Ask Me Anything De Blasio was asked which type of New York pizza he preferred and it wasn't even close:
Di Fara Pizzeria in Midwood, Brooklyn. And to all the Manhattan foodies out there: it's not even close. This is clearly the best. And yes I'm from Brooklyn. PS: They use buffalo milk mozzarella, which is beloved in my grandfather's provence in Italy.
Did you catch that? He managed to drop Italian cred and neg snooty Manhattanites at the same time.
The kind of pizza that someone prefers is as divisive a topic as you'll find in Manhattan. Never trust anyone that doesn't have Totonno's in their top three, and if you want to never see your baby again, give it to the person who takes their visiting family to Famiglia. De Blasio's Di Fara endorsement may put him at odds with anyone that prefers Grimaldi's, John's, Roberta's (the Clintons!), Lucali or Lombardi's. Despite his firm stance Di Fara's stance, we think he'll survive this. After all, this guy said he liked the Red Sox and still won the primary.
