Paulie Gee’s: 60 Greenpoint Ave., (347) 987-3747
Two Courses: $40 to burn at Paulie Gee’s? Solid! You can get a whole fancy pie for $17, like Anise and A Nephew with braised fennel, anisette cream drizzle, Berkshire guanciale and fresh mozzarella, and still have cash to spare for a bowl of Arnold Brothstein ($8); parmesan-infused pasta, prosciutto and escarole soup.
Wine or Dessert: Mike’s Hot Honey Sundae ($8)is a must — Van Leeuwen ice cream topped with candied walnuts and drizzled with the chile-infused honey made and sold by a former Paulie’s pizzaiolo.
