Pete’s Brooklyn

I don’t know where this guy came from, but he jumped right into the frame as I was composing this shot of  The Brooklyn Bridge!  Folks in Brooklyn are aggressive!

Pete’s is a landmark restaurant for four generations of service since 1894. They offer exceptional Italian fare and warm service. Located in Brooklyn along the East River, it has one of the most spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. The first generation restaurateur was the owner’s great  grandfather Dominick Servino. He started out at 289 Hudson Ave, Brooklyn. The second restaurateur Peter Della Rocca married the daughter of  Dominick Servino, Rachel. He opened his first restaurant on York Street and then later moved to 328 Myrtle Ave and Carlton. That restaurant has remained a popular eatery for 60 years.

Pizza is NOT on the menu at Pete’s! Afterall, you would not want to compete with Grimaldi’s which has arguably the Best Pie (Pizza that is) EVER  from it’s coal fired ovens!

  1. I really like this image. The contrasts are great. The color in the background really compliments the orange of the sign.
