Born in Albania, Bari Drishti moved to New York and found work at Mamma Leone’s in Manhattan. He took over “Tudino’s” pizzeria at 622 Washington Street in 1968. From there, a Hoboken institution took root.
The food at Benny Tudino’s is as celebrated as the owner himself. Known for massive slices, the pizzeria has been cited as “The Best in NJ,” serving the likes of Frank Sinatra, Joe Biden, and thousands upon thousands of Hobokenites and visitors alike.
