'No. 28' on Serious Eats

Daily Slice: Numero 28, East Village

The East Village branch of Numero 28 was packed with revelers: birthday partiers and post-work groups, big families from out of town. The gas-assist wood oven was burning hot, and waiters rushing around with huge pizzas (up to 29" long) on wooden peels. We slipped into a table for two and were immediately distracted from our usual mission (one Margherita, please) by an advertised "Pizza of the Month" topped with cherry tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, Parmesan, and porcini mushrooms.

Dear Slice: 'I'm Looking for a Particular Pizza Joint in Greenwich Village'

Reaching in to the Slice mailbag, we've got ... Dear Adam, Last time I was in New York I went into a pizzeria to look at the menu. I don't remember the name. I was hoping you could help me out if I give you a explanation of where I was.I was eating at Kesté and after lunch walked down the street Kesté is on. On the right side a block before the Village, there was a wood-fired pizzeria. I think it had a number in its name. The inside had the oven separated from the restaurant, and there were... More

From the Mailbag: 'The Definitive Top 10 List'

An interesting item hit the Slice inbox yesterday. OK guys, put this in your pie and smoke it! A couple of caveats: The list isn't quite as definitive as it claims to be, as it is missing any critical analysis of Staten Island, Queens, and Bronx joints. When you guys post this on the site (front page, please), perhaps you may want to refer to it as "The Definitive Manhattan and Brooklyn Top 10 List." We've all been to these places enough times to know what's going on and who's coming with their A game and who isn't. Seltzerboy, as... More

Review: No. 28

This review comes to us through special arrangement with Ganda Suthivarakom, who eats and complains on her foodblog Eat, Drink, One Woman. It was posted there in late November, after we met at No. 28 for lunch. Ms. Suthivarakom pretty much says all I wanted to say about No. 28, so I asked her to let me re-post her words here. Thanks, Ganda! WORDS BY GANDA SUTHIVARAKOM .::. PHOTOGRAPHS BY ADAM K. .::. Adam and I hit No. 28 Carmine for lunch today. We split a Margherita (above) and a mushroom with truffle oil. Nice crisp-to-chew ratio, charred bottoms, perhaps... More

Daily News Pizza Roundup

This is another week-old one that we neglected to post about during our renovation. The Daily News did a roundup of New York City's best pizzerias last week. As we told Eater, the new foodblog from the folks who brought you Curbed: A nice roundup, I think. A lot of it is old hat to me, but there were some nice surprises in there, particularly a couple Brooklyn places (Graziella's, Laura's) that have been lurking one or two neighborhoods over from Slice HQ.Irene Sax knows her stuff, and I agree with most of her assessments, although I don't know why...

Recently Opened: No. 28

Slice recently received a tip via our superhot tips box. A few days ago, Slice reader Bruce e-mailed us: I'm addicted to a new thin crust pizza place. It just opened 10 days ago. No one knows about it yet (OK, almost no one). It's like my own secret—but now I want to tell everyone. The pizza is amazing! Two guys from Naples, wood oven, the whole deal. I've been LIVING there! Today, we received a bit more info from Bruce, as well as the photo of No. 28's 12-inch pizza Margherita: Get the basic 12-inch Margherita. Amazing. And... More
