It was a rainy Friday evening in Brookline but that did not dissuade patrons of all sorts from finding their way to one of the many hip establishments that are nestled quaintly atop of each other in Brookline’s most popular square, Coolidge Corner. How conveniently named seeing that all the majority of people that frequent this area dress to impress, have a cool bravado and typically do not drop below a 9 on the beauty scale. Coolidge corner basically takes the pages of Vogue Magazine and puts it in motion; great style, beautiful people, and in summary it has an overall exciting energy about it. This aspect did not make Boboli and Tombstone’s jaunt difficult when on their way to meet the guests of the evening Tony Freschetta and Pizza Jefferson. Continue reading

The Slice Guys expectations were high going into the evening as Posto’s inspiration is the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN). Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (“True Neapolitan Pizza Association”), which was founded in 1984, has set the very specific rules that must be followed for an authentic Neapolitan pizza. These include that the pizza must be baked in a wood-fired, domed oven; that the base must be hand-kneaded and must not be rolled with a pin or prepared by any mechanical means and that the pizza must not exceed 35 centimeters in diameter or be more than one-third of a centimeter thick at the center.
