In the guise of his alter ego, music-blogger Music City Mike, the Pizza Snob has spent many an evening enjoying live music at Lower Manhattan’s City Winery. I must have passed a darkened Phil’s Pizza on Varick Street (right where it turns into 7th Avenue) a dozen or so times, wondering if I will ever […]

One day, while sitting in a mini-Starbucks at a Barnes & Noble in Edison, NJ, I glanced out the window and spotted Anthony’s Coal-Fired Pizza. Thinking it sounded a bit unusual to see a coal oven in a location other than Manhattan or Brooklyn, my friend Google told me that ACFP was a chain and […]
