Best Manhattan Pizza

As an afterthought to my post below re pre-theatre with my teenage daughter, she might actually prefer pizza once in NYC. Where should we go?? Thanks

    1. Angelo's Pizza- close to the theatre district on 57th street. Try the fried zucchini and egglant appetizer.

        The crust at Angelo's was pretty good, but the sauce--eh--not very inspiring. An okay pizza, but not great.

      2. John's at 44th for pie; Joe's on 6th ave/bleeker or is that carmine St.? for a slice eaten standing; DeMarco's Houston for either.

          It's Carmine St., and I don't believe it's that good. Agree with DeMarco.

          On UES, Mimi's.

        2. So after reading all these reviews of DeMarco I just went there for lunch. While the pizza looked like it should taste amazing, the sauce was bland, the crust cardboardy and overall it was really dissapointing.

            Agreed. DeMarco's was VERY disappointing.

              DeMarco's can be hit or miss. I go pretty regularly and have been quite impressed with it recently. I usually take out and crisp up in the frying pan at home, so maybe that makes a difference.

            2. If you DO decide to go to John's on Bleecker Street (the better of the two locations by a long shot), here's a tip: Go as early as you can in the day-- noon, if possible. If you go at night, you'll wait forever for a table, but in the middle of the day, it is sometimes possible to just walk in and sit down.
