Paulie Gee's

Paulie Gee's could be the best pizza joint in the city. Bold, yes. Me care, no. I regretfully don't go there often enough. But tonight, walking around Greenpoint for some last minute holiday shopping, landed us 1 sweet block away just around dinner time.

On today's visit, the owner (Paulie, I'm guessing) walked around greeting all the patrons and making sure they were happy with their food... what a gentleman. I talked to him briefly about how much I'd like to shoot there in the daylight (they're only open for dinner). He responded "You know you could always come in June... there's daylight until 8:30"... well sir, the thing is... I'm an idiot. So yes, I'll be there in June (and hopefully many times in between.)

As for the food, we got the Greenpointer (Fior di Latte, Baby Arugula, Olive Oil, Fresh Lemon Juice and Shaved Parmigiano Reggiano) and the Regina (Fior di Latte, Italian Tomatoes, Pecorino Romano, Olive Oil and Fresh Basil). As always, the crust was a charred/chewy slice of perfection. Sauce is a great balance of salty and sweet. Cheese is good (I'm not sure I'm capable of describing the nuances of cheese, so we'll leave it at that.)

And aside from all that, I'm super impressed at my camera's low light capability. Shots are at 1600 and 3200 ISO.
