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.
Unsure on this one. My family is known for having really strong opinions on stuff like this.
I’m curious. Where exactly was Bimonte’s located?
Bimonte’s Pizza Castle. Joe Bimonte was, IIRC, Frank Pepe’s Son-in-Law. His place was on Hamden, on Whitney just north of Dixwell. Decent pizza, but Bimonte died back in 96 or so, and quality dropped after that. That location is now Eli’s Brick Oven. Not bad, but the only real attraction it has it that it’s nearby my aunt’s place.
His son Greg opened up Mr B’s Pizza, but I wasn’t impressed when I visited.
Would you by any chance happen to be related to someone named Yvonne Fortune? She was part Bimonte and part Consiglio, and even a little bit Pepe.
