Bazan's the Polish bakery on Lincoln Ave. made my wedding cake. They never rebuilt after the fire. Also loved the handmade pierogis made by the Ukranian Church next door to Munson Williams.Jeans Beans had the best mac and cheese and would be a goldmine if they were still open. Is Manny's still around? I use to go to Symeons when it was across the street from Manny's after skiing and the only person working there was Symeon!

For something sweet, almost forgot about HOLLAND FARMS, Florentine Bakery, Carusos. Holland Farms, of course, is still open and just as good as it ever was! Visited there a few years ago for the first time in years, and we were not disappointed! We went to all the old bakeries. There was an Italian bakery on James street that was also excellent, but alas, is no longer there. And the grocery stores had the finest Italian hot sausage anywhere! Wasn't the large chain called, "Chicago Market?" No longer in business. However, ROMA DELI still delivers the best Hot sausage in the entire USA. Really miss those places - and one more excellent place to eat that is still in business is O'Scugnizzo's Pizza.
You got it, Paulie, Holland Farms and the italian bakeries are great. The Holland Farms half moons are the best in my opinion. And an O'Scugnizzo's large #8 is out of this world.

My first job was at the Alesbury Inn on Seneca Turnpike. The girls there wore these great "wench" outfits!
Oh yeah, Better, Alesbury was a great joint. I nailed that cute little Tammy who used to work there. Right in the parking lot while she was still wearing the wench outfit. Awesome - what a night!!!

You mean O'Scugnizzo's on Bleeker St., Jimmy. I like the large #8 myself (cheese and sausage). Check out their website, they ship pizza's all over the country!!

Mr steak on commercial drive. They surely had the best waitresses in the early 80s. There was a girl that worked the seating and made drinks. Not sure of the name. Maybe Mary. At this time it was owned by Zyb and run by Mike B. Cooks were Wizy, bowers, old man, gadziala and malloy. Gosh what a blast.

Meghan, Was the Seafare and the Bowling ally one in the same, or was the Seafare on Clinton St between Main St and the Blvd, far too many years have gone by my memory is fuzzy. Sqeezer, I remember an old guy selling clams from a cart just off Baggs Sq near Donaltys. Anyone on remember the Regal on Bleeker and Jefferson?? Good pizza and Italian food there.
I was a foster child back in the 50's from St. Johns. One of the owners of the Seafare (David Braun) was my foster father. Remember the place well. Also a pizza place I believe the name was Nofis. I used to play with Patty Nofis as a chold, we lived on the same strett (Palmer Ave) in Whitesboro. Moved to Miami in the early 60's, also went to Main Street Elem.
