It’s National Pizza Day and that got the office talking about a long-standing debate: When you think classic Glens Falls region pizza, do you favor Harvest or Talk of the Town?
We asked this once before in 2013, and there were definite opinions on both sides! Once owned by the same family, there are similarities between the two. For me, both places bring back fond memories of growing up in the Glens Falls area, and I am always hard-pressed to pick a favorite.
My oldest sister took me to the Harvest for pizza and a healthy glass of wine before I headed off to college. At various times when I was home, we’d gather there, sometimes just us, sometimes with others. When I brought my son and my husband there many years later, it felt like time had (wonderfully) stood still, and for just a moment, I was 18 again and heading off on my own, 1500 miles away.
On visits back to the area, my best friend and our respective boyfriends would head to Talk of the Town for the beginning of a night out. It was one of those nights out that I met her future husband. In fact, Talk of the Town is where my father-in-law planned a very relaxed and fun rehearsal dinner the night before my own wedding. The pizza, the beer and the laughs were a nice casual break before the ‘big day’. We, of course, always remember that evening when we eat there today.
So, let’s hear it Glens Falls! Which of these classic restaurants makes your favorite pizza?
