Hi everyone, I haven't had the time to read all the postings or keep up with the NY area pizza scene in the past few years. I stopped traveling for work a few years ago so I could have kids, and I just feel out of touch with all the new places in the area. Last time I was in NYC motorino was the new kid on the block, and I know a lot has changed since then. I was wondering if you guys could help me pick a neapolitan pizzeria where I can sit down and grab a pie or two with an old friend I never have a chance to see anymore. I will have my car, and am willing to travel pretty much anywhere. My schedule is super tight, so I will be driving straight to visit frank at Vesta tomorrow night (tuesday), but I am thinking wednesday night I will try one other pizzeria before I drive back to Boston. I plan on doing a quick stop at Keste at some point to say hi to Roberto (hopefully he will be there), and grab a to go pie, so im looking for any place other than that. Maybe if im lucky I can do the same with a non neapolitan pizzeria as well, just a drive by pickup at some point. I think I can probably manage 4 pizzerias in the day and a half I will be there
Happy to hear suggestions for non neapolitan as well. I have already been to a lot of the older places many times, so im not going to bother with johns,patsys,grimaldes,frannys,totonnos, lombardi's,difara,L&b or luzzos. Whats the deal with this don antonio place.... is it worth it even if im hitting up keste?
