Some New Signage on Seventh

A couple new signs went up recently on Seventh Avenue, for businesses that are well-established but felt the need for some upgrading.

Roma Pizza's old signage came down a couple months ago, and new signs have gone up. They're unobtrusive, classy, and stick to the old color scheme. Holding down a storefront between Union and Berkeley since 1982, Roma is old-school, no-frills Brooklyn pizza at its finest (and served as a lifesaver after an unfulfilling recent meal at a certain new area seafood restaurant).

Further up the avenue, on the corner of 12th Street, 396 Deli decided to forego their old white awning in favor of a bright yellow one. It's not bright green, but still not particularly low-profile. Here's how it used to look:

Didn't you do a write up that said you loved the new Crab Spot?

Or was that just the night you got the free food and then you went again and paid and didn't like it?

Sorry to be snarky, but I recall a RAVE review from you for the Crab Spot.

Ugly signs. All of them.

First of all that above post is not me but I do have to ask Sterling why so quick to turn on Dan? You were so passionately defending him just yesterday.

@sterling It wasn't a rave review; I said it was promising. Regardless of how the food tasted, I still left hungry. And nothing was free, not that it would have affected my opinion.

Are you Jewish? (asked while chasing you down prospect park west).

Being lactose intolerant, I don't eat pizza.

For crying out loud! Dan, isn't there a way to make people choose a name here and stick with it?

As for Dan's review of the Crab Spot, he did say it was promising. And just because he gave it a decent review doesn't mean that he couldn't have left still a bit hungry. I've had good food at restaurants and enjoyed it, but felt there could have been more of it.

Why people think bloggers are going into restaurants getting free meals is beyond me. Dan is not a paid journalist, he writes a blog, people need to stop being such PITAs. you don't like Dan's comments? Don't read his blog. you think he's getting paid off? Don't read his blog. Think you can do better? Then start your own blog and STFU.

Just tired of all of this nonsense.

BTW, here is Dan's review of the Crab Spot, I see no "rave" about it:

Of the three the yellow deli and grocery signage sticks out to me and impresses me the most.
