Ridgewood Gets a Little Pizza Magic

There's a new pizza place called Houdini that just opened at the corner of Wyckoff and Decatur near the Halsey Street stop of the L train.

It's rustic chic in the manner of Roberta's and, for the moment, hipster free (for those who are concerned about such things). The pizza is thin crust and is hands down the best in the area.

For more details, there are a few reviews on The Web Site That Shall Not Be Named. (Hint: rhymes with trelp).


Glendale is hungry...

  1. Thanks! It's from the owners of the old Miss Williamsburg (Ridgewood is, after all, the "next Williamsburg":

    1. i was at a music festival at trans pecos on wyckoff this past weekend, and hit houdini three times in three days with different people. the 3 pizzas i tried, as well as the burrata were all fantastic. thin lovely crust with plenty of "tooth" and crunch, superbly flavorful toppings doled out perfectly, and super fast turnaround. each pizza i had was delivered to the patio within 10 minutes. pretty sure it's cash only, so be prepared. but prices are good ($12-14 for 12" pies), everything else (apps, salads, etc. under $10). really nice space physically as well. i heard the times reviewed it this past weekend. so the time to check it is now.

      1. Hmm...

        Let's just say not a destination restaurant.
