There is no good pizza in New York City. If you want good pizza take the train to New Haven and then take a cab to Zuppardi’s just south of Main Street and Union Avenue in West Haven. Or take a cab to Wooster Square in New Haven and try Sally’s pizza. Nothing in New York can compare to New Haven pizza.

I was about to post words to that effect, but you've said all that needs saying. Except for stopping in Norwalk for a pie at Letizia's.

I found it hard to leave.

I literally had one of the best days of my life there. The owner of the little villa apartment we rented took us out on his boat to show us the islands around the main island of Hvar. A little boat, nothing special.

We drove around a bit, then we stopped at another island and spent some time on the beach, then we went to another island where his friend had a restaurant out of his summer home. We ate a four hour long meal of a lifetime. Everything was grown or handmade. Fresh fish caught that morning, fresh vegetables and herbs grown on the property and carafe after carafe of homemade wine from their vineyard. It was pure heaven.

Jeff Varasano is one of the foremost authorities on NY pizza based on the Neapolitan pizza style.

Below are his pizza map and recipe links:

The oldest and still the best! Lombardi's Pizza

The reason to come here is obvious: beautiful, smoky-crusted pizza with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella.

If the line is too long, you may want to consider one of the following.

People have been whacked over this.
Lombardis was nice but a tourist trap. I preffered Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, but its a trek. Totonnos was good at coney island, but I preffered Nathan’s hot Dogs.

Is Don Chin’s still a going concern and worth the drive out? It was mobbed when I frequented the area. The Palm was still in the Drake Hotel, so it’s been a few years.

Palm Court is still at the Drake. Never heard of Don Chin's. What kind of cuisine? Where was it located?

I know of Don Roth's, which just closed within the last year.

There was Don Moy a chinese restaurant in the NW suburbs but thats been gone 10-15 years.

We always had our last dinner out at The Palm Restaurant at the Drake Hotel, when I was up for the RAC (Retail Advertising Conference). I’d understood that it moved to a different location. Fine place, and old.

My mistake on the name of the other place, it was Bob Chinn’s out in Wheeling.

but if you like NY-style pizza, just stick to any place with an Italian guy's name (Angelo's, Dominic's, Tony's), and you should be fine.

Actually, John's on Bleecker St. is widely considered among (if not THE) very best.

TOMATO PIE, FTW.

I felt bad because the original author wanted NYC specific pizza... because I was going to suggest the best pizza EVER... Delorenzo's.

Thanks for the link... I can't believe they have a website... wow... I used to love the fact that going there (used to be) like going to a hidden gem that only those from the surrounding region know of (not going to say "locals").

Seriously everyone, Delorenzo's is the BEST.

Arturos on Houston. There is no equal. Only a tourist would dare go to Patsys/Grimaldis. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME THERE AND GET YOUR A-S OVER TO ARTUROS!

LOL! But since the name John is masculine, would the Italian be Gianni?

There was a guy going around in a car to all the Ray’s pizza places years ago, telling them he owned the name Ray’s. He said you can keep the name of you store but you gotta pay. You can imagine the reaction.

What was the place Clemenza wanted to meet at when he was here during his foolish attempt to live in Seattle? It was closed, and we ended up at John’s on Bleecker Street. No slices. They made fun of me for wanting anchovies . . . I never forget things like that LOL.

He answered my question in post 116. Arturo’s.

By the way, I had a fantastic mini-Nicoise pizza at a French place called Cafe de Soleil, on Broadway between 104th and 105th. It is expensive and crowded at dinnertime, but at lunch and between lunch and dinner, it is a different story. Delightful real French stuffs and an outdoor cafe with trees. If the crust had been crispy, it would have rated 100% but it was the soggy kind. Still excellent.
