Best Take-Out

Brooklyn Pizza

READERS' PICK: Make the phone call, then listen to one of your favorite LPs before picking up your pizza. Brooklyn doesn't rush its product and that's good. The hand-tossed, stone-fired, bigger-than-the-record-you-just-put-on-your-turntable pizza is #1 with a bullet. Choose from more than 20 fresh toppings; the combinations are almost endless. (Chicken, spinach and onion is one recommended trifecta.) Though you don't have to have guests, your album choice remains important. And Brooklyn Pizza will also deliver within a certain radius just in case you want to keep playing records.

B-SIDE: Feast, 4122 E.

A perfectly balanced medley of lobster, corn and scallions, topped with a Parmesan cream sauce, comprise the delectable "bread pudding" appetizer. The pork chops in whiskey, maple and pecan sauce can give eyesight to the blind. Chef/owner Doug Levy honed his chops at Boccata, The Dish and Lume before deciding to start a revolution in takeout food. Like Béla Bartók, Levy takes the common, combines it with the exotic and creates something new and sublime. And you can take it
