Pizza near Times Square
« on: March 03, 2009, 10:33:02 AM »
From what I've heard, I don't think there is much right there. But if you were to recommend some places of "you must try this pizza" ....what would they be?

My wife and I are headed there in May, and I am lookin to try out 2 0r 3 places.

There is a great little artisan type place that I don't think many know about. It's called Sbarro. ;)

Honestly, I would just take the subway downtown a few stops to the village and go to Joe's or Bleecker Street pizza. Maybe even John's on Bleeker although that place is very overrated.

There is not much in the times square area that I would consider to be the top of the list as far as places go. There is a Patsy's there if you really don't want to leave the area.   If you don't mind spending about 10 bucks on a cab,  Una Pizza Napoletana  is my favorite in the city for ultra high temperature Neapolitan style pizza.  

While you are in the city it would probably be a good idea to try some classic NY coal oven pizzerias, as that is a style that pretty much only exists in NY.  There are a number of them fairly close to you.  The Patsy's Harlem location is one of the best, but it might not be the nicest place to visit because of the area that it is in.  Instead I would head over to Brooklyn (it might be easier to get to than you think) and try Grimaldi's which is right under the brooklyn bridge, or stay in manhattan and visit one of the Totonno's locations.  

John's of bleecker st. (for coal fired) and Joes in the West Village (for a good example of NY street style) are both also pretty close to you, close to each other, and easily accessible by the subway.  John's only sells whole pizzas, but you and your wife could split a pizza there and walk right over to Joes to have a slice. I think those two combined with a visit to Una Pizza Napoletana would be the easiest way to try three styles of different, but amazing NY pizza.

I was there in July.  My wife & I were in line in the scorching afternoon sun for almost 2 hours.  Very good & definitely worth the wait!  The grey line tour bus drops you off right around the corner.   Don't waste your time looking for good pizza in Times Square, I did & was very disappointed.

When I'm looking for food in Times Square I often eat at Virgil's Real Barbecue. Good stuff!
