My father is from a Pepe’s family. Not 100% sure if he’s ever been to Sally’s, since it’s one of those families that had strong opinions. My grandfather knew most of the folks at Pepe’s back in the day, and one just did. not. go. to. Sally’s.
I wonder if there were any family politics involved in that little ironclad policy, of if it was simply a matter of taste. It’s not as though the pizzas that Pepe’s and Sally’s put out are dramatically different.
There were exactly three acceptable pizza places in the New Haven area, in a strict order: Pepe’s, The Modern (if one was on a schedule, only!) and Bimonte’s (if one wanted to not drive as far from my aunt’s place in North Haven). I’m not sure I’m fully forgiven for my last trip to Sally’s.
I’m curious. Where exactly was Bimonte’s located?
