Great NY Pizza near Orpheum Theatre
We're coming up to NYC from Baltimore to see Stomp. Where can we go for the best-NY style pizza before the show that's relatively nearby the theater?
While a little farther north.. I am a huge fan of Mariella Pizza on 3rd and 15th. Also there is the artichoke pizza on 14th but I think its a bit over rated.
Depends what you mean by NY style... Coal oven? Gas oven?
If coal oven, there's nothing really great nearby in the East Village. Closest is probably Arturo's on Houston. Not a fan of Luzzo's flavorless crust.
If takeout/stand up/counter style gas oven, do South Brooklyn Pizza's branch on 1st Avenue or Joe's new location on 14th. No table service.
Avoid Artichoke (crust is too thick and the sauce too sweet).
Motorino is excellent but popular and also Naples style. Not NY style. It's one of my favorites ever, but not exactly what you're looking for.
probably a gas or brick oven. And when I think of NY style, I think of thin, yet not super thin crust-- the slices that New Yorkers often fold up to eat...
