According to the neighbors, the owner of Del Corso was having rather public personal problems coupled with money issues, both issues forced him to close him business When asked about the construction, they said there is flat out nothing happening in there for weeks.

On the Lobster Roll:
The menu says it’s a Â¼ lb of lobster meat which looked generous and was plenty for me. I was glad to see that it wasn’t drenched in mayo (I’m not a big fan of mayo) instead they give you a packet of mayo on the side that you could squeeze on top of your heap of lobsterâ€¦yuk, don’t like that style either. So I was enjoying it at first, but then halfway through it got a bit bland. I didn’t dislike it and feel kind of guilty saying that since who can resist fresh lobster meat, but maybe it did need a bit of mayo or spices mixed in?
On the oysters and steamers:
All I can say is, the oysters at Jordan’s were completely awesome and amazing! The fresh ones were good, but especially the fried ones were the best I’ve ever had. I would definitely make the trip again for those.
On the whole lobster:
I got a pound of lobster for $19- the meat was juicy and fresh. Totally delicious. Picking it apart is so much fun! The part when you get to the tail, is of course, the best part. Yamahomo printed out a coupon for 3 lobsters for $30 to take home from the fish market (also an awesome part of Jordan’s). What a deal!
On the calamari:
The calamari was tender but kind of forgettable. No legs either, which makes me suspect it’s frozen.
On the ambiance :
The ambiance of the place was hilarious and a little sadâ€”Jordan’s is at the end of an inexplicably long and empty road leading towards the dock/harbor area, sandwiched between a TGI Friday’s and a Cold Stone Creamery. Such is late capitalism.
The time has come to show the world Victorias Pizza.
Victorias Pizza has been serving pizza to the Gerritsen Beach community since 1962. Victorias has since been a staple of the community, hosting: beach block party’s with sand on the sidewalks, the Gerritsen Beach Little League and donating time and money back to the community.
Other than that they serve up the best pizza. We know we might be a little bias because we live here, but we have tried alot of pizza in our time. The squares are simply the best around.
You cant walk into Victoria’s without getting something.
I think its a rule.
So I picked up a baby square (6 Squares)with fresh garlic .
