Well now that Im all caught up on my travel recaps, things can get back to normal around here!
Today I thought I'd show you a little bit more of Brooklyn. I've already shared a couple of neighborhood tours, a fab flea market, the cutest coffee shop ever and a few other fav spots. But today is different.
I'm always quick to point out that Brooklyn is so completely different than what most people expect. But there are some things that are so absolutely old school that they define the stereotype and can't be argued. Not that I want to argue with them, if you know what I mean.
Case in point, Lioni's. An institution so unapologetically old world Brooklyn that you can not resist its charms and travel back to a different time the minute you cross the threshold. The meat, the bread, the italian specialities are all here just like you remember them.
Located in (where else?) Bensonhurst, it spits in the face of every hipster/yuppie establishment that has become the norm here. And while I'm all about appreciating progress, sometimes its nice to just have a good ol' sandwich and take in the scenary. They don't take themselves too seriously if this sign is any indication.

Anyone else share my appreciation for this place? Where is your favorite old school food?
