Best Pizza in New York?
« on: November 30, 2013, 12:20:20 AM »
Hi All
My daughter will be going to New York in a couple of days (from Australia) and I was wondering if you guys could me the heads up on the best pizzeria around Manhattan?

Thanks,
Warren

My vote would be for Motorino.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Warren,

Good to see you back. I hope that all is well with you. I will frequently stumble across one of our old exchanges and wonder how you are doing.

A while back, I did some slicing and dicing of posts and came up with a new board called Pizzeria/Restaurant Recommendations, at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?board=66.0. If you scan that board, you will find threads directed specifically to NY pizzerias that members have recommended. If you know what style your daughter likes, it might help to know that to narrow down the possibilities.

I'd say Tess would like a good old margherita neapolitan pizza using buffalo cheese. 

I've learnt some good lessons chatting to you Pete, especially one - the importance of using a digital scale.   I still tinker with my poolish ;-)

Warren,

There are quite a few Neapolitan places in NYC that Tess might like so her choice might turn on where in NYC she will be staying. But from what I have read, among our members who favor the Neapolitan style and who are also very knowledgeable about that style, the favorites include Motorino, Keste, Paulie Gee's, Luzzo (around the corner from Motorino), Don Antonio Starita (a partnership with Keste), and Forcella. If you or Tess scan the threads on this board, you will find quite a bit of discussion of the abovementioned places.

Cheers
