Inflation hits L&B Spumoni Gardens

Everyone is feeling the pinch of food prices going up as the economy continues to struggle along.
A few months back there was a lot of upset pizza lovers when Di Fara's in Midwood upped the price of a slice to $4. We were surprised that L&B Spumoni Gardens in Bensonhurst, long regarded as one of the best pizza restaurants in the city, was holding on to its $2 price for both its round and famous square slices.
But, L&B gave in on Monday, upping the price for both to $2.25 -- just in time for the spring when things start heating up at the popular pizzeria, which is also a hangout for the young and old when it becomes warm thanks to its ample outdoor seating.
