Please help me out! I searched for the perfect slice in Mid-town East the other day and wound up with a burrito from Chipotle! Give me your top three please...
best in the city...I just happened to be marooned in east mid-town with a craving for a good slice. Not much looked worthy of wolfing on Lex or 3rd Ave in the upper 40's to mid 50's...so I went for the tried and true burrito. I do need to kn ow the best destinations for pizza wherever they may be in the Big Apple...please give me your Top parlours.
Well, I went to dinner at John's on Bleeker last night for the first time.
My friend and I ordered one pie:
half meatballs, pepperoni, peppers, onions, and mushrooms.
The plain was fine. It was nicely charred/crispy and the sauce was not overly sweet or tangy. I found it was just right. The cheese tasted good and wasn't too stringy when bitten into.
We both started on the plain, and by the time we got into the topped slices, they had cooled off considerably. The slices became slightly bogged down and were somewhat soggy. I think I'll save the topping overload to deep dish pies from Uno's or the like.
I enjoyed the plain slices very much and the topped ones slightly less. My friend and I both hadn't had pizza in quite a while, so we didn't have any memories to recall for a basis of comparison.
