NYPizza: Best in D'twn Chicago?
On the recommondations from this board (thanks!), I've been to New York Pizza a number of times. Consistent with many other chowhounds, I found it pretty good, but not great. So I sought out other contenders, which were also listed on this board. This was a mistake. Two other places, Gigios, and Cafe Luigi's, didn't nearly live up to NYP. I threw out half the slice at Luigis. Gigios was tollerable, but still not much better than the Ritz-cracker crust Chicago pizza. Any others folks can recommend within the city limits which is better than NYP?
homesick for really good NY Pizza,
I haven't done much more than grab a slice at whatever Original Ray's was closest to me while I'm in New York (which isn't often any more). But... that caveat in mind... I just ordered Pizza Bubamara again tonight and, if Bosnian pizza is not the same as Bronxian pizza, at least the freshness and spici/garlickiness of the ingredients and the distinctly un-cracker-like crust would probably at least appeal to a NY pizza fan, even if it wouldn't fool him.
I know there are other discussions of Bubamara here, but for now, here's the address:
4607 N. Wolcott St.
And here's Metromix's appreciative review:
Your subject line is misleading. Downtown Chicago refers to the area roughly between Taylor, Chicago, Halsted, and the lake.
Anyway, since you're talking about the whole city limits, the place I like for foldable pizza is Donny's down by Comiskey park. I also like the greasy stuff down at Bacci on Chicago and Western.
And don't diss Chicago pizza okay?
