Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Worth a second look: ABC News Nightline's Slice of Heaven: Pizza Wars; Best pizza in Broward County

ABC News Nightline: It's On!: Pizza Wars, December 8, 2010

ABC News Correspondent John Berman on a "Slice of Heaven,"
December 8, 2010:
The fight for slice supremacy as the humble pie becomes a recession powerhouse.

Story at:

When I lived in Evanston and Wilmette in the mid-1980's, I used to go with friends to an Unos after every third Cubs game we went to at Wrigley Field.

The best pizza in Evanston back then was Carmen's, on Church Street, which wasn't cheap, but was delicious. http://www.carmenspizza.net/

In the Washington, D.C. area, where I lived for 15 years, I was partial to Armand's Pizza, usually the one on Mass. Avenue on Capitol Hill, that was located next to The Heritage Foundation and near the U.S. Senate buildings and Union Station, or the one in Tenleytown on Wisconsin Avenue near American University.

Not surprisingly, my friends and I were partial to their all-you-can-eat deals with salad.


From this you can deduce that my favorite kind of pizza is Chicago Deep Dish style.

There are currently no
Unos in South Florida, which is a shame. Only wish there was one here in Hallandale Beach at the Village at Gulfstream Park or in nearby Hollywood.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
