I WILL BE BACK SOON!

First I would like to thank all of the people who viewed my blogs, at this point, it's at 80.000 views and counting, also for all the nice comments! But I'm about to start producing a documentary, which will take up all my time. I do promise to be back writing restaurant blogs and videos after the holidays! Until then I will be tweeting my past work so my blogs will stay active until I'm back blogging again. I pray that these holidays will be blessed with joy, happiness, and family in Jesus name.

Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY DoTube's Pick Of The Week!

Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY
My mother has a brother named Jonzi, I don't know why she didn't name me after him? She's always saying, oh you remind me of your uncle Jonzi so much! Oh, your uncle Jonzi would have said the same thing! You and you uncle Jonzi are twins! Which is a compliment, because he is a fun loving guy, when uncle Jonzi walks in a room he owns it! So I could definitely see why people would say we are a lot alike, some might even say we have the same style!


The truth is my uncle Jonzi and I are very close, I love him and aunt Polly very much! So when my dad told me that they were coming to visit from Maine I was very happy! I told my dad I wanted to take them to a nice Italian restaurant, somewhere they have never been before, my dad asked me what about Gino's on 5th in Brooklyn? I told him I have only had the pizza there and it was delicious! He told me the food in the restaurant is great! So we R.S.V.P for Saturday 6 adults at 8 pm!

Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria is Family owned and been serving 
Bay Ridge Brooklyn some of the best Italian food since 1964!

As you walk in Gino's, you will enter to the Pizzeria, the amazing aroma of old world style pizza tempted me to grab a quick slice on my way to the restaurant in the back, but my family said I would spoil my appetite! I guess they don't know me very well?

If you can make it past the pizzeria without stopping for a slice, 
      you will come to a full-service bar. You can choose from two their dining areas, one the right and one to the left.

Just a few feet away is their wall of fame! where you can look 
at all the famous people who love the food at Gino's restaurant!

The dining area to the right has a more classic feel to it, in shades of gray with silver metal trimmings around the lamps, mirrors, and light fixtures.

The dining area to the left has an old world feel to it, with brick walls, terracotta 
wall frames and dark copper light fixtures. I let me uncle Jonzi decide 
which dining area he wanted to dine in? Of course, he chose this dining area because he's an old world type of guy himself!

At Gino's, they don't just serve a pitcher of water, but also a small bowl of ice 
for your own refills. Little touches like this score big points for me when I'm blogging!

I wanted to try the salad that was on the daily special menu, which was an Asparagus, Beets, Red Potatoes, and Goat Cheese Arugula salad in a mustard vinaigrette, It truly was delicious! Note, we were there on a Saturday night.

For true Italian food lovers, no explanation is needed!
 But to fulfill my blogger duty I will give it a title.THE ITALIAN ANTIPASTO! 
Fresh Mozzarella, Roasted Peppers, Green Olives and premium Italian cold cuts 
make up this delicious appetizer. This is a great dish the whole table will enjoy!



Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY.
Next we had the Fried Calamari! These were very light and crisp with a side 
of sweet marinara sauce.I usually order rings only because 
I don't eat the body and legs, but my uncle Jonzi does, so I didn't make the special request this time and we both enjoyed them! 



Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY.
Next, we had the Baked Clams! The breadcrumb was nice and toasty and the clams were juicy in a butter sauce, of course coming from Maine, uncle Jonzi knows a good baked clam when he tastes one, he said they were delicious and I must agree! Yes, the portion is just enough for one, but he manage to share them with us.



Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY.
My mom and dad had the Chicken Cutlet Parmigiana, Nice size chicken cutlets with light marinara and Mozzarella! I'm not sure about your family? But my family always orders food with the intentions to share with the rest of the family! And I'm glad they did because the portion they give me was delicious! 



Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY.
Aunt Polly order the Shrimp Scampi over Linguine! I guess you can take the lady out of Maine but you can't take the Maine out of the lady? She orders some extra dishes and handed me a nice spoonful of this amazing entree! The shrimp were a nice size and clean, the linguine was full and robust and the scampi sauce was rich! 



Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY.
My uncle Jonzi and I are steak and potato men so we order the Grilled Shell Steak 
with Roasted Potatoes! This is a real men's meal! Thick juicy steak, burnt in all the right spots with no need for steak sauce because the little metal cup had a delicious steak juice in it! My uncle Jonzi and I both like our steaks medium well 
( I guess we really are just alike? ) 
The roasted potatoes had just the right seasoning to make this a complete meal! 



Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY.
Now, of course, it's time for dessert! These mini chocolate chip cannoli's come 3 in an order, sprinkle with cinnamon and powdered sugar with a dollop of whip cream and a fresh sliced strawberry. This is Brooklyn's finest! They are the perfect size when you just want a little something sweet to end a great dinner!

This is the Italian cheesecake! Now to be very honest I actually prefer the NY style cheesecake which is made without ricotta cheese, 
but it seems like everyone at the table really enjoyed it! So if you're a fan of Italian cheesecake my family say's it's delicious! 



Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY.
Now this is the mamma mia of Italian Dessert! Of course, this is what I ordered, 
the Tartufo is an ice cream lovers dream! Vanilla and chocolate ice cream with a peanut center, covered in a rich chocolate shell! This is truly a dessert that can't be beaten, it may take a few minutes to defrost but it's worth the wait! 



Gino's Restaurant & Pizzeria Bay Ridge Brooklyn NY
We order Cappuccino's & Espresso topped with whip cream from 
our wonderful server to wash it all down! 

There is nothing worse than taking someone out to dinner and the food or service is really bad!! Well, I'm happy to say that my whole family really enjoyed Gino's, and I'm more than happy that my uncle Jonzi loved it also! So I waved our waiter down to get the check, but he informed me that when my uncle went to wash his hands after dessert he paid the bill!! Of course, there was a 2-minute family ruckus to pay him back the money, but he was not hearing it from anyone, so we just give him a very humble thank you, and told him the next family dinner was on me!

5 Boro Burger NYC! DoTube's Pick Of The Week


It's not always easy trying a new restaurant, people don't want to spend their money because they're not sure how is the food? if the place is clean? how the service is? But you see that's what I'm here for! And I found a place in NYC where you can get an amazing burger!

Yes! I know what your thinking, not another burger joint? Well as you may or may not know? I'm a big advocate when it comes to specialty restaurants, if I'm in the mood for lobster I'm going to choose a restaurant where their specialty is the lobster!

 A sure way to get me to try a restaurant is if the specialty food is in the title of the restaurant! Since the name of this restaurant is 5 Boro burger, guess where I'm going when I'm in the mood for a good burger in NYC? Ahh, you guys know me well!

5 Boro Burger is on the corner of 36 st and 6th ave, the orange neon trimming on the walls give the restaurant an ultra modern feel, and is surrounded by windows for the perfect view of the city!

The place is clean and comfortable and has a flat screen TV on every wall. As soon as I walked in, the hosted set my down at a table of my choice, of course, I chose a table facing the window so I could enjoy the view of the city! The waiter came, but I told him I needed a few minutes to check the menu.The menu has a pretty good verity of different types of food for people who may not what a burger.

Like Chicken Quesadilla, Crispy Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap, Classic Reuben, and Fried Green Plantain
With mojito (garlic sauce)

But for all the great visuals, 
fun music, and full restaurant review, 
watch my video at the bottom of the blog!
