In Response to: The Pies That Bind [6]

In the early ’70s, undergraduate pizza options seemed to be focused on the Colonial Diner (until it burned down), the Grotto on Witherspoon Street, the Kingston Inn, and maybe for slices, A&S Luncheonette (aka “The Porn Shop”). Conte’s was often lauded by Tommy Sullivan, Bobby Sinkler, and some of the other trainers and staff at Caldwell Field House as a place they liked to have beers after games or on other evenings. Not sure how many undergrads actually ventured down Witherspoon Street to discover it.

Many years later it became a go-to spot after games and other visits to campus with our kids and other Princeton friends. Taking home a Conte’s pizza, lasagna from Teresa’s, or a dinner from Tiger Noodles has often been part of the “special dispensation” required to enable me to come to campus for a football or lacrosse game.
