i have had the pizza at cherry tree many times. Though always the small and never the large, the large looks like a regular pizza, while the small is a health size and has a real brick oven feel to it. (which it should as they have a real brick oven in the back). The toppings and the crust can be fabulous, including teh Verdi and the Pepperoni. Indeed, it has been somewht additictive, a friend was very angry when they closed for renovations. Though not the best in NY, I defintely find the pizza there sufficiently edible for post BAM eats, random bar munchies and snack food.
the service is consistantly downright appalling.
Please tell me that was sarcasm?
I went to Cherry Tree twice - once for a drink before Convivium and the pizzas looked amazing so we were determined to go back. Two weeks later we went back for the pizza after being cautioned on this board that it 'looks' great but it's not good.
Well it's true what they said. It takes like something you'd pull out of the freezer and pop into the oven. The dough had no taste whatsoever (I think their chef needs to discover sea salt amongst other things...). The sauce tasted like it came from a jar.
It LOOKS delicious. Still did that night. But up there with the best in ny? It isn't up there with the best thing I could pull out of my freezer :)
Sorry to be so harsh but when you make a bold statement like calling that 'best in ny', it kind of demands it.
(And the service can be down right appalling.)
im with nehna...i went once last year a few weeks after they opened. they had signs saying 'pizza for $6' or something along those lines. after a movie at the BAM, my friends and i pointed to the sign and said we'll have 2. when we closed up our tab, they tried to overcharge us saying the pizzas we had were large and thus, more money. we complained and said we clearly showed which pizzas we purchased and they finally caved in. very slimey.
the service was terrible and the pizza tasted like uncooked dough.
