Man, it's good to be back in New York. My first stop back was at Mike's Pizza in Long Island City. Long Island City is a cool neighborhood in Queens, bordered by the East River on the west and Astoria on the north. I found Mike's online with overall good reviews for the pizza so I wanted to give it a shot. Now, onto the parm - the bread was warm and toasted and had a fresh taste to it. The chicken was chopped up - not like the full cutlet I prefer. The chicken was a little tough and didn't have a tender texture. The sauce had a strong, lively flavor of rich tomatoes. The cheese was the best part - melted, gooey and plentiful. This parm gets a #middlethumb. The guy working was an older Italian man who was friendly. I'd go back to try the pizza - after all, it's named Mike's Pizza, not Mike's Parms.
