'New York' Magazine Pizza Extravaganza

20090713-nymag.jpgThis week's issue of New York magazine, the "Cheap Eats" issue, has a special package on pizza, focusing mostly on what it's calling the "Great New York Neoclassical Neapolitan Pizza Revolution." Stories include an analysis of pizza economics, a time line of New York pizza moments, and a day in the life of Una Pizza Napoletana's Anthony Mangieri, which this quote is from:

Mangieri’s take on his competition is similarly pointed, to say the least: Luzzo’s pizza is “garbage,” Kesté’s “tastes like shit.” “There’s no love,” he says of the latter. The idea that something he’s been doing for twenty years is suddenly trendy repulses him: “Every week, a new place opens. No one pays their dues. They see something that can make money and go, ‘Oh, let’s open a Neapolitan place.’ It’s disgusting!” Lately, he’s been mulling a move to the West Coast, where the lifestyle, at least, is more relaxed.

Here's an index of all the stories.
