Parkside serves Neapolitan-style pizzas, along with a long list of house cocktails, a block southeast of Prospect Park. The bar is a good spot to dine solo or with a date, and the tables work for a small group hang. They serve some standard pizzas, as well as some more creative ones like miso cod with parmesan and the Sicilian pineapple with jalapenos - our favorite is the lamb sausage with mozzarella. They’re open till 2am everyday, so keep it in mind for a late-night drink option when you’ll probably end up wanting pizza anyway.
