Probably the other kind of mob. The stupid kind that thinks you can't eat different kinds of pizza.
 
2012-06-14 03:39:56 PM
Dago nuts over their sauce recipies.

This is a bullshiat story.

If it was real it would have been "a gang war over a GRAVY recipe"

At least they didn't try to pass off that Chicago crap as pizza.

Mobsters met at Panera Bread? I don't think so...
 
2012-06-14 03:46:35 PM
They had their sit-down at the Panera Bread? Why do I find that so funny?

The mob really has gone suburban. Reminds me of the Sopranos episode where a couple of Tony's gang try, unsuccessfully, to extort money from a Starbucks branch, and Tony sells out the poultry shop property to a developer building a Jamba Juice.

Do they make their living off day care protection money? Drive black mini vans?

"Ex-Colombo capo Anthony Russo delivered delicious testimony about a former mob pal whose blood boiled like a simmering red sauce..."

That's about as far as I got.

Just use ketchup.

Pizza is serious business.

Okay, that shiat might work in college when all you have is a toaster oven and a mini fridge, but once you grow a pair you get some real farking pizza from a mob protected establishment. Capiche?

Having eaten at The Square last month I'm getting a kick... Heard about this then.

Pretty good pizza though.

Doesn't matter as being New York Slices they probably both taste like crap anyway. Why fight over it?

2012-06-14 04:02:46 PM
Recipe ?? You see, you start out with a little bit of oil. Then you fry some

garlic. Then you throw in some tomatoes, tomato paste, you fry it; ya make sure it doesn't

stick. You get it to a boil; you shove in all your sausage and your meatballs; heh?... And a

little bit o' wine. An' a little bit o' sugar, and that's my trick.

Ok, normally I'd make fun of this. But one of the houses around the corner from L&B has been in my family since the 20's, and my family considers their Sicialian pizza sacrosanct. I *totally* understand this.

The average pizza joint on any street corner in NYC will usually have better pizza than the best places outside the
NY tristate area.

I guess its a testament to the effectiveness of RICO that the Colombo's are down to whacking each other over
pizza sauce.

$4k? They settled for $4k!?! Frank should have held out for more, maybe $10k and future royalties of $.02/slice with a pie discount down to $.12. for 8 slice pies.

Queue "I am disappoint".

Let's re-frame this a little. Would $4k settle a trade secret dispute if KFC's original recipe was stolen? How about Coke or Pepsi's recipe? $4k wouldn't even pay for the lawyer time to write the opening paragraph of the complaint letter.

So they went private arbitration. $1500 to the arbitrator, $500 to the org that supplied the arbitrator and $2k to the injured party. What the hell is this Fed lawsuit really about? We're being undercut?

We should give the Mob a new slogan: We're cheaper than Lawyers!

To be fair, if there's to be a fight over pizza, L&B's is well worth it.

Now I'm going to have to go back to NY and go eat there, so I can taste the sauce and try to mentally sort out the flavors in it.

Just because.

Paris1127: It's certainly no Pizza Connection, that's for sure...


I was especially saddened and not exactly surprised by this excerpt, "The case proved especially difficult for the jurors, who were not allowed to take notes and were often asked to leave the court at important times, and for defendants, many of whom could not understand English.
The case was meant to strike a definitive blow to the drug trade in the U.S. and for this reason the costs and the sheer scale of the trial were allowed to escalate. The case ended up costing $50 million. The prosecution case alone took a year to present. Ultimately, however, despite most of the defendants being found guilty, the trial had little impact on the drug problem in the U.S.

The sit down was on Staten Island. That alone should explain why they met at a Panera.

Staten Island is NJ. It has a mall, and you need a car to get anywhere.

I have a wonderful system for the garlic. I use a razor, and I slice it so thin the garlic liquifies in the pan.

McCormick® brand garlic powder, to be specific. You can get it from Sysco.
