Last Gasp: Closing Time at Casanova’s
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
It was an evening of business mixed with pleasure at Casanova Restaurant tonight. I didn’t mind: giving Casanova my business is a pleasure. The Mister talked baseball with the guys and I made gaffes over good vittles.
1. I said Hunter was safe. They disagreed. I reached a compromise:
In New York City Hunter is out, but as far as I’m concerned he was safe. Please do not spit in my food. (laughter)
2. True confession time:
I’m a Met’s fan… but I’d rather see the Yankees win than the Angels. Los Angeles sucks. (more laughter)
Casanova’s food is very nice for the price (TIP: ask for the arugula salad. It’s not on the menu, but if/when it is available order it!). The atmosphere is a delightfully unpretentious. It is one of the last true old school restaurants/hang-outs left in North Brooklyn.
What’s more, they’re great guys (even if they are Yankees fans). You can peruse their menu by clicking here.

Check ’em out if you haven’t already. Tell ’em New York Shitty sent you!
P.S.: If you dine in insist upon being seated in the back room. It is FABULOUS!
