Delivery pizza Garden District
Staying @ the worldmark on St. Charles Ave. - with child in-tow. Which "non-chain" pizza places will deliver? Which are best? TIA
The St. Charles Tavern has one of the best pizzas I've had in New Orleans. The crust is exactly right--not too thin, crisp, and flavorful. The Special Boudin was particularly excellent with enough topping to make it count but not so much that it was a disorganized mess. I live in the Marigny so I haven't tried delivery from there but they claim to deliver till 2:30 AM (and are open 24/7).
Although opinions differ on this, I would shun the temptation to try Slice. They might very well sell a decent *slice* of pizza if it's been re-cooked or something but their whole pies were awful: soggy crust, too many wet ingredients (seriously guys, you're supposed to cook the green peppers first then put them on the pizza; same for mushrooms), cardboard-y tasting crust, and frankly their waitstaff weren't much better.
Since we're talking about pizza: anyone have an opinion on the Mardi Gras Zone pizzas? I've heard here and there that they're very good (they seem to have the right ovens for pizza) but $25/pie is outrageous unless it's really, really outstanding.
Mardi Gras Zone is an interesting place. It used to be really just Mardi Gras stuff, and gradually since Katrina they've morphed into a weird organic and ethnic grocery/ 24-hour convenience store/Mardi Gras store hybrid. And now for some reason they have a wood-burning pizza oven. It's worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood just to check it out.
Reginelli’s- Thicker crust, fanicer toppings
Slice- Thin crust, New York-style (no delivery)
Theo’s- Super thin crust (no delivery)
Italian Pie, Pepperoni’s, Fresco (ordinary pizza)
Midway- Deep dish pizza
New York Pizza- doesn’t taste anything like New York pizza
Ancora- Italy-style, thin crust, fancy pies
That’s most of the ones I can think of Uptown.
