High-Falutin' Gluten-Free Pizza at Don Antonio

Slice: New York Adam Kuban 7 comments

It's worth noting that the gluten-free pizza at Don Antonio is wood-fired gluten-free pizza. That's not unique in all of pizzadom, but I do believe it is unique for NYC. More

Lazzara's: A Solution to Your Garment District Woes

Slice: New York Michael Berman 7 comments

Workers on Manhattan's West Side: are you suffering from Midtown-food-choice blues? Wanna sit (not-stand), eat pizza civilized-like, and not pay a fortune for it? Do you think, like I do, that we should pay more attention to things founded in the '80's? If you answered yes to any of the above, then head to Lazzara's. More

Pizza Preview: Don Antonio in Midtown Manhattan

Adam Kuban 22 comments

It's no surprise that the menus at Kesté and Midtown Manhattan newcomer Don Antonio are similar, but there are some exciting new pies at the Midtown joint — including the Montanara Starita, a version of the deep-fried pizza that's been cropping up among the newer Neapolitan places. Slice got a sneak peek at some of the items exclusive to Don Antonio. Peep the slideshow here to get the skinny. More

PizzArte: Great Neapolitan Pizza in Midtown Manhattan

Adam Kuban 9 comments

I almost hate to recommend this place to you, since it's about two blocks from my office and is going to go into my personal lunchtime heavy rotation. But I didn't start this site to keep pizza a secret from you. So go. It's worth the trip. More

Where's the Best Pizza Near the Empire State Building?

Adam Kuban 11 comments

Slices near the ESB. [Photographs: Always Hungry] The blog Always Hungry New York goes eatin' slices around the Empire State Building in this post of six pizzerias near the landmark. This area is shit for pizza, but if you're stranded in the area or are touristing and don't want to hike out to a better pizza neighborhood, AHNY recommends Little Italy (Fifth Avenue and 33rd Street) and Squisito (34th Street, between Madison and Park avenues). If you're craving more than a quick slice and have some time, I'd recommend walking a little farther west and hitting up Lazzara's at... More

Pizza at the Bon Appétit Pop-up Supper Club & Cafe

The Serious Eats Team 1 comment

[Photograph: Carey Jones/SENY] From Serious Eats New York: There are rotating specials, and today's was from the winner of the Gourmet Pizza Classic, a "Heavenly White Porcini Pizza" ($8) made by Lisa Kielas. Though Adam gave the toppings his seal of approval—Porcini mushrooms, with garlic, Fontina, and Parmesan—the crust was pale and a bit bready. Not worth it when there's other awesome stuff there, like the José Andrés–conceived J(amon)LT. Bon Appetit Supper Club and Café 101 West 57th Street, New York NY (map) This week only, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Full menu here; basupperclubandcafe.com... More

Saag Paneer Pizza? Why Not?

Adam Kuban 7 comments

[Credit: Midtown Lunch] Saag paneer is spinach and cheese, right? So why not make a saag paneer pizza? Midtown Lunch posted yesterday about the unusual pies at Bombay Eats on West 52nd Street. Right now, the Indian-food-topped pizza is sold whole-pie-only. The proprietor there told MTL's Zach Brooks that he didn't think there was enough demand to sell these pizzas by the slice. Zach badgered the owner enough that he made a slice topped with saag paneer from the buffet. He says: I still think he’d make a killing offering Indian pizza by the slice. Maybe if enough people...

Openings: Lazzara's Pizza, Hell's Kitchen Location

Adam Kuban Post a comment

View larger map Just got word from Scott Wiener on a new Lazzara's Pizza location in Hell's Kitchen (or Midtown West, if you're feeling generous): I just walked by some construction the other day and noticed that Lazzara's is opening a new spot on Ninth Avenue just south of 44th Street on the west side of the street. Not sure if they're leaving their other spot or just opening a second one. Permits were issued in July so it looks like we may have to wait a bit. Some easy checking on the Lazzara's website reveals that the Hell's Kitchen... More

Angelo's Pizza, Midtown

Adam Kuban 4 comments

We were in Midtown in the 50s taking in the last day of an exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art. But I also wanted to take in some pizza while I was there. Where to go? With the Modern on 53rd and a hoard of mediocre good-enough-for-lunch slices surrounding it, I thought I was sunk. And then I remembered Angelo's Pizza, a coal-oven place on 57th Street, between Sixth and Seventh. And as I've never really done much about the place on Slice, I figured it was time for a revisit. I'd been a number of times when... More

Any Good 24-Hour Pizza Joints in NYC?

Adam Kuban 7 comments

Reader comment and response is still pouring in thanks to yesterday's New York Times story. So many great comments and recommendations. And questions. Reaching into the proverbial mailbag, we have ... Dear Slice, Do you know of any good late night or 24 hour pizza places in NYC? —Bilal Dear Bilal, Slice is a homebody, more prone to lying prone on the couch at night, remote in hand, watching Battlestar Galactica. But our favorite late-night (if not 24-hour) place is Vinny Vincenz. Great squares here. Sunday through Thursday till 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday till 4:30 a.m. Late enough for... More

Ray's: The Question Remains Unanswered

Adam Kuban 3 comments

In yesterday's New York Times F.Y.I. column, the question was raised: Where was the first Ray's Pizza, and what's the story behind it? A. Why don’t you ask something simple, like what happened to Judge Crater? Some New York culinary questions (just who invented the black-and-white cookie is another) are destined to remain shrouded in mystery. The evolution of Ray’s Pizza resists an easy explanation.... The Ray’s question is also bristling with lawyers. Rosolino Mangano, of Famous Original Ray’s Pizza on Columbus Avenue near 83rd Street, went to court in the early 1990’s, registered that name and branched out with... More
