While Sal of Sal & Carmine's on 101st and Broadway passed away a couple years ago, the sliceria still has one of the best reputations in the neighborhood. How would it stack up to the other two options in a one block radius? Dumpling and I went on a mini pizza-crawl to find out.
'The Corner Slice' on Serious Eats
So we're cheating a little bit this week, since the block between 6th and 7th Avenues on Bleecker is technically subdivided into 4 smaller blocks due to the off-grid street intersections. It's still somewhat of a pizza hot spot in the city though, with three New York joints (Joe's, Bleecker, and ZPizza), a Neapolitan pie joint (Kesté), a Roman pizza spot (Roma), and the New York-Neapolitan pie restaurant John's. But we're interested in one thing: who makes the best order-by-the-slice pizza?
