New York style pizza

  • m

Anyone know of any good pizza places that are close to the New York/East coast type? I have a friend just moved here from Boston and they really miss New York style pizza. Willing to drive to any part of DFW if it is that good. I have some good neighborhood places around me but they are not even close to New York good.

  1. Mwhip,

    Well there are three places that I have seen pop up on CH for great pies. Campania, Olivellas and Grimaldi's. I have also attached two posts from people looking for the same thing. On those posts are about the best places we have (which are very few).

    1. If you really want NY PIzza...try this site http://www.iwantnypizza.com/

      For the amount you pay for shipping I would rather settle for "Similar" to NY pizza :-)

      1. Definitely check out the new Grimaldi's in West Village.

          I keep hearing about this place:
          http://www.salspizzadallas.com/

          I hear it's good and I've been wanting to try it, but gravity keeps me leaning towards Louie's on Henderson for their thin, crispy slices and killer bar. I guess I'm more of a fan of St. Louis style -- and the thick, upside-down Chicago deep dish pies...

          Another pizza joint I've frequented over the years is, Al's Pizza over by Bachman Lake. See: http://restaurants.dallasobserver.com...

            Sals is just okay at best. Basically the typical pizza about the same as the Joe's chain of pizza places.

            1. re: irodguy

              That's good to know! -- Sal's is lowered on my to-do list now! Thanks, irodguy!

            2. re: DiRotiman

              I lived in Dallas for 2 1/2 years coming from NYC and Sal's is the first place that popped into my head. I used to stop for a slice or two before going out at night. It won't be an perfect substitute but it's pretty close. I can't recall if we ever bought a whole pizza but New York is all about the slices unless your talking about Grimaldi's, John's, Patsy's, etc.

          2. I think you may need to explain that you are writing from Dallas/Fort Worth and Grimaldis in NY is a bit of a hike... Good luck with the pizza. Can't help with that, but I understand you have some great food where you are...

              Grimaldi's is a new Pizza place / restaurant in the West Village, near downtown Dallas.
              We went down there on Saturday only to discover they won't be open for lunch until mid-January. They open about 4:30 pm. And they have a Sam Adams Lager and a wheat beer on tap.

              1. re: Miss Picky

                And just to clarify-- Grimaldi's here is the brand new Dallas outpost of the NY original.

            2. Give Coal Vines a try. It was started by a former NYC police officer.

                Agree, it is the closest thing to NY pizza that I have tried, though honestly, New York pizza can really only be found in NY....Kinda like going to NY in hopes of good Mexican food....
