Barstool Sport’s Dave Portnoy stops by two more New Jersey pizza joints
We shouldn’t be surprised that Dave Portnoy keeps stopping by the Garden State to review our pizza joints, we leave other states in the dust when it comes to a good slice.
For anyone unfamiliar, Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, reviews pizza from around the country for his web series “One Bite with Davey Pageviews.”
Earlier this week he reviewed Blue Steel Pizza Company, in Bloomfield, NJ.
Portnoy then continued his way through New Jersey, stopping by Teglia Pizza Bar in Montclair and Lombardi’s Bar & Restaurant in Cedar Grove.
His review of Teglia’s goes fairly smooth. Portnoy is quick to compliment the undercarriage of the pizza, which he holds a lot of investment in.
Portnoy spills some behind-the-scenes gossip on a restauranteur who didn’t take his review well (keeping it anonymous), shares his pie with onlookers, and ultimately ranked the slice a 7.9 out of 10.
His next stop doesn’t go as smoothly.
Portnoy set out to review the bar-style pie from Lombardi’s but is immediately derailed by his own neuroses.
He can’t get out of his own head regarding the size of his hoodie. It’s a hilarious look inside Portnoy’s mind.
Trying to keep the show on track, he goes for his famed one-bite review.
“I just burned my face,” he says upon taking a bite, “things are going from bad to worse.”
After some time for the pizza to cool he goes in for another bite and determines that the pizza is good. It earns a 7.3 out of 10.
That’s when he starts getting heckled by children.
Watching Portnoy manage to continue his review despite children seemingly on an ice cream-induced sugar rush is an incredible showing of restraint.
Check out his full review of Lombardi’s (as well as his impromptu review of Sonny’s Frozen Desserts) for a real treat.
