Rivoli Pizza in Greenwich Village—Another Textbook New York Slice

This latest Pizza Snob lead came courtesy of musician Richard Barone who wouldn’t know me from the Man in the Moon. A DJ pal of mine (listen to his great “Pop Top” show on-line every Friday at 5 pm Central) who is friends with Barone on Facebook pointed me to his direction. Barone was the […]

Arturo’s Coal Oven Pizza—A Thick Pie and a Great New York City Vibe

The Slice website offers a map of the twenty current New York City-Area Coal-Oven Pizzerias. The intense dry heat of a coal oven can produce a charred and crisp pizza crust that is delightfully delicious. I have heard it said that new locations are currently banned for environmental sake, and that a prospective pizza-maker can […]

John’s of Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village–Coal-Fired Pizza Delight

Knowing that John’s of Bleecker Street would be closing at 11:30 p.m., Music City Mike kept an eye on his watch during the final moments of the Dave Alvin show at the City Winery. Unable to find a phone booth, I hurriedly transformed into my Pizza Snob identity during my brisk walk through the Village. […]

Greenwich Village’s Percy Pizza – Pretty Good for Only a Buck!

Last year, I was fairly certain that my one and only experience with New York City dollar pizza at St. Mark’s 2 Bros. Pizza would be my last. However, I was intrigued enough by a recent Village Voice story heralding Percy Pizza as the best dollar slice in the City to give it a try. […]

Manhattan’s Bleecker Street Pizza – Another Page from the Classic Slice Textbook

The time for another trip back to New York City had come upon me. While my pizza planning for the week was still underdeveloped, I had long decided that Bleecker Street Pizza in Greenwich Village would be my first stop. Despite this joint’s slew of “Best Pizza in New York” and celebrity accolades, my visit […]

New York City’s Artichoke Pizza—Don’t Let the Name Fool You!

Taking full advantage of “The City That Never Sleeps,” I continued my evening’s adventure for what would be my third and final pizza stop of the day. On the advice of house-concert impresario Drew, I hoofed it in the winter’s cold over to Artichoke Pizza in the heart of Greenwich Village. I must admit I […]

TOPPINGS – Louis C.K. and Ben’s Pizzeria

I know that I am late to the game on this one, but I finally watched on Netflix a few episodes of FX’s Louie featuring comedian Louis C.K.  During the show’s intro, Louie grabs a quick slice.  Pizza fans may recognize the locale as Ben’s Pizzeria (on the corner of MacDougal and Third in Greenwich […]

TOPPINGS – Spider-Man Works at Joe’s Pizza

On a recent visit to see his girl in New York City, The Kid enjoyed some slices at Pizza Snob’s Five-Slice Award favorite Joe’s Pizza. He texted me to ask how in the world I missed the fact that Joe’s is the joint featured in Spider-Man 2’s famous pizza scene. To set the record straight, […]

TOPPINGS – The Daily Meal presents America’s 35 Best Pizzas Slideshow

http://www.thedailymeal.com/americas-35-best-pizzas As you will see, this selection includes a lot of what the Pizza Snob calls “fu-fu” pies, but I do give them a big thumbs up for their inclusion of New York City’s Joe’s Pizza, one of our 5-slice honorees – #6 on their list. Thanks to the fun-loving Roger the Roof Guy for […]

One Last Slice of New York – Joe’s Pizza

Before my recent trip to New York City, I did a little internet research about joints to visit for the launch of the Snob. Outside of wanting to seek out the original Ray’s, the one place I came across that I just had to visit was Joe’s.  Besides some glowing recommendations, how could I pass […]
