Reader Rec: 'Supino Pizzeria Is the Real Deal'

Reaching in to the Slice mailbag, we've got ... Supino's eponymous pie. The Supino features roasted garlic, black olives, chile oil, ricotta, red sauce, and mozzarella. [Photograph: seekoh on Flickr] Adam, Summerfield here. After reading the link about pizza in Detroit, posted on Slice in August, I've had two eating experiences at Supino, which was rated No. 1 by the Detroit Free Press.Supino is the real deal. Its pizza is pretty near a New York–Neapolitan style. The crust actually seems slightly thinner than what I remember New York metro pizza to be (it's been nine years since eating a pie... More

IMtel: Motorino and Rosa's

IM + intel = "IMtel." Here's a bit of received wisdom. [screennameredacted]: got a bit of slice intel for you: a) wouldn't worry yet about the slice curse on motorino; went there last night with 3 friends and all four of our pies were easily 9/10s. maybe a little too much charring on one of them but otherwise terrific. also, i think i recall you once saying the SE offices were near FIT; the margherita slice at rosa's on 27th and 7th is truly a hidden gem, well worth trying it out. trust me on this one. everything else there...

John's Pizzeria in Jersey City

Homeslice Paulie Gee commented this morning on my John's Pizzeria post of last week, tipping me to something I was unaware of until now. I figured I'd bust it out into its own post just to alert folks: Are you aware the John's has opened a new location just west of the Exchange Place Financial District in Jersey City? I happened upon it yesterday. It's not listed on their website, but it's definitely them. They have the same "No Slices" logo on the sign hanging outside, a coal oven, and the menu looks like the Times Square location's menu.... More

Dear Slice: Really Disappointed

Clicking in to the Slice inbox today, we've got ... I am really disappointed that you haven't done a review of Amore Pizza in Flushing, Queens. It is in the Pathmark shopping center on Linden Place and the Whitestone Expressway. I have been going there for years and can't believe that you haven't been there yet. Give it a shot. It is worth the trip. Thank you, Mike... More

Reader Recommended: Bollini's Pizzeria in Monterey Park, California

Editor's note: I had an email exchange last week with a Serious Eats reader coming to New York from L.A. The gist: "The airline food ain't gonna cut it for the flight back west. What uniquely New York snacks should I bring on board that will travel well?" (Unfortunately, I couldn't recommend pizza for that.) Long story short, I asked her how far she was willing to go for good snacks for the plane. Her answer included some good L.A. pizza intel. —The Mgmt.

Dear Slice: There's Other Pizza on Staten Island, You Know

Hi Adam, Here are some suggestions for Staten Island. In regard to the three you have visited, Denino's is legendary here but not as good as they once were, Nunzio's is very ordinary, and I'm baffled as to why you so highly rate Joe & Pat's. Anyway, some suggestions, with the name of the shop and the neighborhood: Brother's in Port Richmond: Not only the best on Staten Island, but the best New York–style pie I've ever hadGentile's in Tottenville: Excellent pizza, but only available by the pieKingdom Pizza in Eltingville: Pretty good, especially the vodka supreme; our everyday place...
