Any recs for decent NY style pizza in the Silverlake/Echo Park area? I understand Nicky D's is supposed to be pretty good, but they don't open during lunch hours. Thanks in advance!

    Pizza Buona is the only good NY style pizza in that area, IMO. There is an Ok place in Atwater too, a few blocks east of The Roost, and

    You could also try Il Capriccio

    I think calling it decent NY style might be a stretch, but definitely better than most of the stuff suggested in this thread.

    If you are willing to travel, look at the bazillion "where can I find good NY style pizza in LA" threads and wade through the various suggestions.

      Just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Silver Lake and very worth the extra few minutes of drive time is Village Pizzeria in Larchmont Village. Owner's a NY transplant and the pizza is divine.

        I was pleasantly surprised by the New York-ness of the by-the-slice cheese slice I had at the relatively new place in the mini-mall on Fletcher, north of the Ralphs and Astro, but south of Riverside Drive, the exact name of which now eludes me ("Rudelli's" maybe?)

        Anyone else have a thought, or a whole-pie impression?

          I believe it is indeed Rudelli's. I tried them once but don't remember being inspired to return. Anyone try Crispy Crust in Atwater yet? It sounds like some kind of chain operation but is actually a branch of an Armenian (or maybe Persian?) doughnut bakery, of all things.

            The first Crispy Crust I know of was the one on Sunset and Shraeder. It was part of a little deli that was owned by a young Armenian man. I don't know if that was the original, but it was the original for me.

            The Crispy Crust on Fountain and Vine is now our "go-to" delivery pizza. They're consistent, and the delivery is not a huge drama.

            The pizza is way better than any of the other delivery pizzas in the area, and the wings are also pretty good.

          Nicky D's started opening for lunch about 3 months ago.

            Give Masa in Echo Park a try:

              Masa is Chicago-style thick crust though.
