Lions and Tigers and Squares is a new Detroit style pizza restaurant from the genius pizzaioli behind beloved New York City style Artichoke Basille's Pizza. Inspired by the city's long history of pizza and their unique way of preparation in a nuts-and-bolts pan, Francis Garcia and Sal Basille brings the style to New York City with their Chelsea restaurant, but not without adding their own local flair, like a Corned Beef Sandwich in pizza formed, featured in this short video from our friends at Thrillist.
Two things all New Yorkers love are corned beef sandwiches and pizza. This love was the inspiration behind a new pizza creation from Staten Island pizza legends, Francis Garcia and Sal Basille: The Mustard Pizza. The co-owners of Lions & Tigers & Squares -- a Detroit-style pizzeria with “New York flavor” -- throw the tomato sauce out the window, going corner to corner with spicy brown mustard. Then they add sauerkraut, slices of corned beef, and a mound of cheddar cheese to make the closest thing out there to a Katz’s sandwich in pizza form.
