New York style pizza

mwhip Dec 26, 2007 11:00 AM

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.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Pastazios. I think it's really top notch. I wish Addison circle wasn't so far from my work, or I would go there more often.

        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....

        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.

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

            I keep hearing about this place:

            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.

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

                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.

              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 :-)

                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).
