Maiden Voyage for Fledgling New York Pizza Tour

My buddy Scott Wiener launched his pizza tour venture yesterday with a trip to Lombardi's, Louie & Ernie's, and Patricia's. From the New York Daily News:

Pizza lovers with $55 to spare can tool around in a school bus on the first citywide pizza tour, which will hit premier pizzerias on a rotating basis.

Wiener is hoping to feature up-and-coming joints — like Luzzo's in the East Village, yesterday's second stop — as well as established favorites.

"They may not have the track record of Lombardi's or John's, but their pizza is still on the same level," said Wiener, 26, who said his personal favorite among the 130 pizzerias he's visited citywide — Brooklyn's Grimaldi's — will be on an upcoming junket.
