Bonanno Bros. Pizzeria
OK, we urbanites actually don’t miss it that much, because we can still get Frank Bonanno’s pies downtown at Osteria Marco. But we sure feel for those wanderers in the culinary desert of the southern suburbs, who must be missing it something fierce.
It’s not so much the place itself as the idea of the place that we miss: how did a cheapo dive not only survive, but thrive beneath the lobby of a landmark hotel in high-rent Boulder, like some crazy relative locked up in the basement for 40 years? Not to knock its swankier successor, License No. 1, but that karaoke-belting, foosball-playing black sheep was one of a kind.
