Is Di Fara Pizza Worth The Wait? (Remembering Dom DeMarco)

Ever waited in a crazy long line for some famous pizza or doughnuts or barbecue? Was it worth it? This week Dan goes to Di Fara Pizza with Serious Eats founder Ed Levine. Di Fara is a legendary Brooklyn pizzeria that’s famous for its slices – and its line. Along the way, Dan talks with scientists to find out when a long wait makes your food taste better — or worse. Plus he spends some time with the legendary Dom DeMarco, who ran Di Fara for more than half a century. We’re replaying this episode from 2016 in honor of Dom, who died last month.

This episode originally aired on August 11, 2016, and was produced by Dan Pashman, Anne Saini, and Caitlin Pierce, with editing help from Shoshana Gold. Special thanks to Arwa Gunja.
