Tonight the Mister, I and a good friend finally got around to trying out the Garden Spot’s newest dining establishment: Paulie Gee’s. The first thing that struck me was how vegetarian friendly the menu (which you can see by clicking here) was. Truth be told, it was difficult to make a choice— but choose I did: I opted for the Marianna and an arugula salad.

Make that two arugula salads. As it would happen the waitress had noted we had debated as to whether purchase one or two. They had an extra one so they gave it to us. Both were dispatched pretty quickly. Then came a surprise from Mr. Gee himself:

The first working model of the “Miss Heather Special” a little culinary joint venture we have been working on. We dug in.

And dug in. It should be noted that the Mister ate his entire pie: the Kuban.*


All in all we had a great time and my Marianna pie was garlicky and delicious. A glass of wine would have been a nice accompaniment, but Paulie assured me they were anticipating their liquor license in a week or so.

Paulie G’s Pizzeria
60 Greenpoint Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222

As for what will constitute a “Miss Heather Special”?  That’s for me to know and you to find out! I am more than certain Paulie will come up with something fantastic! In the meantime, check it out! You will not be disappointed.

60gptaveTHUMBJust shy of two weeks ago I posted a rumor about 60 Greenpoint Avenue becoming an Italian restaurant. This week I have learned this is, in fact true. TWICE. The first time was from a reader (thanks Margot!). The second time was from the proprietor of said establishment himself: Paulie Gee. He writes:

Hi Miss Heather,

I’m sorry that I did not get this information to you sooner.  Since the Slice item came out I’ve been swamped with emails.  I’m not a PR pro, so I hope you understand.  I hope you find this to be noteworthy:


The best way to learn more about me is the most obvious:


But if you want to know more, just ask.


Paulie Gee

I asked Paulie one question: when will this establishment open? He is aiming for December 15 but is more or less at the mercy of the city (to get all his paperwork in order). I wish him the best of luck in this endeavor. He’ll need it!

Miss Heather

P.S.: I wonder what is going to happen to Paloma’s old sign? I for one hope Paulie keeps it.
