I've been following the recent developments within and around my favorite dive bar—Mulberry Street Bar on Mulberry between Grand and Broome—with great interest. It's always a little frightening when one of your favorite haunts comes under new ownership, especially when it's a relatively recently discovered new haunt. I mean, we were still in our honeymoon phase before she up and changed on me. So how do the new pizzas stack up?

When Mulberry Street Bar recently opened after renovations, I was afraid it would become another Little Italy tourist-trap red sauce Italian joint complete with menu hawker and cheesy Italian music. Thankfully, it's still got it where it counts, and, as it turns out, cooks a mean burger to boot.
