Save Money without Sacrificing Flavor with a Classic Pizza and Bar Date
A little slice of heaven (get it?), Antonio’s Pizzeria dates all the way to 1950. There’s no way to miss that retro neon sign when you’re walking down Flatbush Avenue. It’s a neighborhood favorite, but it feeds hungry couples from all around the city every night. You’ll find all of the pizza classics here: grandma, Sicilian, even deep dish if that’s your jam. And if you’re not in the mood for Mozz, you can chow down on a simple pasta dish or a meatball hero. Your cash will go far here—a plain large pizza is just $17.00, and Penne Alla vodka sells for $11.00. Whatever you order, wear something with an elastic waistband. Antonio’s doesn’t cut carb corners. No cauliflower crust here.
Stretch your date night budget even further by finishing up the night at Sharlene’s. After all, pizzerias and dive bars go together like, well, pizza and beer. Sharlene’s is no-frills. This is the place to go for beers on tap and effortless cocktails. It’s simple, in the best way possible. It’s been frequented by Park Slopers for years, so if you’re in the neighborhood, pull up a seat at the bar and get ready to listen to jukebox tunes for as long as the keg keeps flowing.
