If you’re looking for good, fresh food from a true neighborhood spot, you need to check out Dee’s Pizza on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills. A neighborhood fixture for over 20 years, Dee’s has managed to stay true to the concept of using fresh ingredients to provide quality food at reasonable prices despite the economic landslide this city has experienced over the last few years. We had a chance to sit down for lunch at Dee’s to really learn about his story and, of course, try their brick oven pizza.
Dee started out in the industry as a busboy, and eventually worked his way up to prep cook. But he wasn’t satisfied. He went to culinary school and there he learned the importance of using fresh ingredients in food. When the opportunity came to buy the restaurant he once worked in as a busboy, he couldn’t pass it up, and turned it into Dee’s Pizza.The food at Dee’s is amazing. The pizza is made to order in their custom made brick oven. Their foccacia bread is also made to order, is just as delicious, and comes in four varieties. But Dee’s is not only about great pizza. The menu has a full list of gourmet burgers, entrees, and a long list of pastas. Their kids menu has tons of options too, which I found refreshing. Kids should have more choices, and Dee’s provides them, with four pasta choices, a salad option, and three pizzas to choose from. Plus, each option also includes a drink and dessert.
Dee’s also offers take out, catering, and private events. For more information, you can visit their website, but I suggest you head over to Dee’s and experience the great food and atmosphere for yourself.
Their hours are:
Sunday: 12 – 9:30pm
Tuesday — Thursday: 12 – 10pm
Friday — Saturday: 12 – 11pm
Dee’s is located at 107-23 Metropolitan Ave. in Forest Hills.
