Although if you want them to understand New York slice pizza, having no place to sit down and enjoy yourself is a big part.

 

That's probably why I never became a pizza lover.

I have been curious about Pat and Joe’s, a Staten Island original, Which opened a restaurant and pizza parlor in Manhattan recently. From what I’ve seen photo wise, it looks even better than the original. And they have a full Italian food menu as well

JTF: There's a dumb "trick" to ordering at New Park, which is that you have to ask for your slices "well done" or else they come out as you described. I wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if you're out that way (at Rockaway Beach, for example), I'd advocate for trying it again.

 

I agree with Daniel that Prince Street and Mama's Too should be included in any discussion of great NYC pizza. Neocon, I don't know if Prince Street delivers, but I'm sure your friends' hotel would be in range if they do.

 

Daniel: the EV Joe and Pat's is very good (though can't say if it's better than the original). I liked it better than the WV branch of Denino's.

Prince St bakes only square slices? Mama's TOO looks interesting [reviewed by Wells for The New York Times!], and I'll recommend for the next time he goes up to Columbia.

 

Are Rubirosa and Joe & Pat's fairly similar in atmosphere?

Prince St. bakes both types of slices.  But, as Ori has said, their classic is loaded with pepperoni. And it's full of pepperoni oil

 

I just think if you're bringing a couple of kids, going as a family, then John's or Arturo's is your best bet.

If you don’t want to run down the street folding the slice in half and trying to keep the oil off your shirt, I too vote for Arturo’s.

she’s still there. I tried to go last summer and she took one look at me and quoted a 90 minute wait for one of the empty tables.

Just for the record I’ve eaten a slice of santillos every day since Friday. I’m a better person for it

I go to Totonno's once or twice a year - it's still quite good. But never go in the summer, or when there's a game at that field.

 

Rubirosa is practically impossilble to get into.

I have no explanation for how well I was treated on my last visit. I showed up alone, sandy and damp from swimming 2,500 feet away, was promptly served and almost as promptly ate the entire luscious pizza, then to my horror discovered I'd lost the cash I'd brought for the day. When I swim alone I carry only money, a Metrocard, and keys in a zippered pocket. She shrugged it off and agreed I could pay the next day.

Some of you may be interested to learn what became of my friend when he decided to bring his skateboard to New York.
