I have to go to New York next month for a week or so, so I want your recommendations on New Yorks best pizza places, I don't mind traveling in New york as there is a lot I want to see anyway, but I want the best pizza New York has to offer smile.gif

All the best.

DiFara in Midwood, Brooklyn, is the best by-the-slice pizza in New York City, at least that I know of.

But you have to put up with A LOT of inconvenience to get it. Not just traveling there, but waiting forty-five minutes to an hour and a half to get a slice -- even if it doesn't seem that crowded.

Besides pizza are you going to regular Italian restaurants? I find it really interesting you have an Italian Restaurant in Thailand.. Are you Italian, is your cook Italian, what made you open an Italian Spot.. I would love to hear about your place.

i saw this post and thought "troublemaker!" laugh.gif but...no one is arguing what the best pizza is? only one vote? everyone agrees?

DiFara is definitely an experience and very good pizza

i'll add Franny's for excellent buffalo mozzarella margherita and clam pies (also in brooklyn but whether it's prospect heights or park slope may depend on who you ask laugh.gif just kidding, prospect heights)

in manhattan, you're on your own, although if you want a taste of NY pizza silliness swing by Artichoke on east 14th st. or Una Pizza Napoletana on 12th nearby so you can decide for yourself whether it is "the best" or "a joke"

happy eating!

PS skip Co. unless you're after "dogshit"* aka pizza bianca

Probably not, but everyone is too tuckered out from Easter and (still) Passover to think much about pizza. laugh.gif

What, not Adrienne's? wink.gif Very convenient to sights at the tip of Manhattan, like the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island/Staten Island ferries.

for the views, maybe but you only really want the whole rectangular pie. the individual round i had there once was fine ( seemed different crust) but not as good as the big one. neither will change your life.

I like my thin crust crisp and with integrity (i.e., doesn't slide apart when you point it down to get the excess oil off), and thought DiFara's was very good but not worth the schlep.

I like Joe's better, and it's the most convenient and by the slice. You can always fit in a slice from Joe's.

Little Italy Pizza on 33rd just east of 5th is also ver good.

Joe's by the slice is probably one of the best slices in Manhattan.

Bleecker St. Pizza does a very highly regarded Nonna and Grandma slice.

Artichoke is silliness and a waste of time.

But if there's more than 1 of you going to get a few slices, you're better off getting a whole pie at one of the better
pie places...Franny's, Arturo's, Patsy's, the new Keste, UPN, etc.

OMFG. The pizza I had there back in April was incredible, better than at his former New York location. Glad he's moving back.

Certainly looking forward to this.

 

There's gotta be more to the story, with Jeremiah and Fabian involved.  I think that where this is allegedly going to be, originally was slated to be their wine and liquor store.
