My girlfriend and I stay in Bushwick/Williamsburg once or twice a month with friends because we love the area and being in the city.
I don't remember how the topic came up but long story short, we were trying to figure out who has the best cannoli in Brooklyn and surrounding areas (within maybe 30 min on the metro). The only ones we've ever had were Circo's and pretty much every place in Little Italy. Gino's is just incredible.
We're staying this weekend and we want to get a few different ones just for fun to declare the ultimate champion. Yea, we're weird. To save us time and money, I figured it'd be smarter to have some places in mind ahead of time. Final notes - being filled to order is a huge plus, ricotta-base only.
Bonus points if you also include who has the best sfogliatella. That's completely off-topic but it's my favorite pastry. (Might as well kill two birds with one stone if I'm going to these places anyway, right?)
Anyways, let's hear it and thanks in advance!
