Pizza around the Empire State Building?
« on: December 15, 2014, 03:05:34 PM »
Pizza Pals:
I'm going to NYC  for 4 days in early January for a company meeting. The offices are very near the Empire State Bldg.  Except for one night (the night I fly very late) I'll have limited time to er, is it Pizza-see or Sight-eat? In either case, I'm looking for  the best "within a reasonable distance" from the office. My nights are all corporate dinners =-(  so, no pizza.

I'll be footin' it more often than not. I walk very fast, especially when cold - which it will certainly be. 
Using the Empire State Building as a central point I'm thinking the northern limit might be Central Park @ 59th and the southern limit being around 44th. East and West about the same - 10 to 15 blocks.

The map borrowed from the Daily Show's Pizza rundown... includes their recommendations:

 :pizza: NY Pizza Suprema on 8th Ave

 :pizza: Pizza 33 on 3rd Ave

Would you please make suggestions? And if you know if they are slice places or sit down restaurants - that will help me plan and maximize my micro NY pizza tour.

Thanks in advance!
Cheers,
Don

Pizza is pretty weak around the ESB. I wouldn't worry about walking distance. Don't walk. Take the subways and go wherever you want.

All of these places are 7-8 minutes on foot from ESB.

Eataly

That's right across from Madison Square Park, home of the flagship Shake Shack restaurant. Highly recommended.

International Museum of Sex is right there, too...Just sayin'

Forcella, You can get the Montanara fried Neapolitan pizza here.
377 Park Ave S (b/t 26th St & 27th St in Flatiron)
New York, NY 10016

Anthony Bourdain's old stomping ground, Brasserie Les Halles is right there, too.
411 Park Avenue South (at 29th Street)
New York, NY 10016

Enjoy.

I forgot about that Forcella location - definitely the best pizza close to you - and you get to see a really good looking oven at work.  ;D
