Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza Restaurant Review

: A frequent misunderstanding, when transplanted New Yorkers rave about the superiority of their native pizza, is to think they're referring to the flopsy overloaded street slices found everywhere in NYC. But they're actually talking about the pies produced by the city's most historic Italian immigrant pizza joints---Lombardi's, Patsy's, Totonno's, John's, etc.---with the thin and crisp burn-blistered crusts that can only come from the ultra-high heat of a coal oven. At this original Anthony's, Brooklyn transplant Anthony Bruno introduced the pies of his childhood to South Florida in 2002, and, as you'll taste for yourself, the result is quite different from lower/slower-cooked wood-oven pizza. Try a specialty pie, like sausage and garlic-sautéed broccoli rabe, or concoct your own based on Anthony's basic pizza (with high-quality mozzarella and imported Italian plum tomatoes plus Romano cheese, basil and olive oil). Other menu items are limited to coal oven wings, sandwiches on coal-cooked focaccia, and several salads, plus one dessert: forgettable New York cheesecake.
