Frank Pepe's-Yonkers
« on: November 04, 2013, 06:36:03 AM »
Four families, including kids from 2-13 collected at this family-friendly place last night for a pizza fest.  Among the standouts were the clam pie the ricotta/gorgonzola, and the bacon pies. The pepperoni/mushroom and plain tomato pies were also crowd pleasers.  Few places in the area do as good a job serving well made pies to large groups (we were 17) at such reasonable cost ($183 all in, including salads, beverages and pies), expert and friendly service and the equivalent of three small pies were left to take home.

Given the place is just 15 minutes from my daughter's house, I am going to be tempted by the call of that clam pie quite often.

Jinhua,

Do yourself a favor and go check out Zuppardi's clam pie.  Though, you may never want a clam pie from Pepe's again if you do...  It's really that good.

We are heading back up to CT in a couple months, I'll have to give them a try.   Acing a well made Pepe white clam would be quite a feat!

Not that I"m a Zuppardi's salesman, but after our group had Zuppardi's, the Pepe Clam Pie wasn't even close...

There's a few folks here with more pizza experience than me that have reviewed their New Haven visits as well, seeming to share similar sentiment:

We actually kicked ourselves for not eating at Pepe's first, because I think we would've enjoyed the clam pie more... but we went straight after our Zuppardi's pies, and the quality difference in the clams was significant.... The fresh shucked clams make a huge difference... (in price as well unfortunately).

I would image with multiple Frank Pepe locations some of the focus and consistency is lost...a shame when that happens  Those pics were from a trip home in '10...the pizza was great.

Pepe's Yonkers is 15 minutes away.  New Haven is 2+ hours.  Not gonna happen unless we are passing by.  I did fly to California for meals at Manresa and French Laundry, but that ain't pizza.
