Papa's Tomato Pies Vies with Lombardi's for Title of Oldest Pizzeria in America

Slice Meredith Smith 22 comments

The kinks in America's Pizza Timeline start pretty much at the beginning. Most recently, Papa's Tomato Pies in Trenton, NJ has laid claim to the title of oldest pizzeria in America—long held by Lombardi's in New York. The claim is based on the fact that Lombardi's closed for a decade and therefore can no longer call themselves the oldest. So maybe Papa's should just go for the title of "oldest continuously operated pizzeria in America"? More

In case you missed Ed's appearance on the news show The Takeaway with host John Hockenberry this morning (we won't blame you, it was 6:49 AM EST) you can listen to it here. They chat about emblematic regional foods from all over the Northeast, including Rhode Island's coffee milk, Philly cheesesteaks, Maine's lobster rolls, and well, Delaware was a toughie. Hot dogs? Blue crabs? Salt water taffy? More

Video: Neapolitans Talk Pizza (While Ed Levine Antagonizes Them!)

Slice Adam Kuban 51 comments

In this video, Ed Levine antagonizes a room full of passionate pizza obsessives. I love the part where master pizzaiolo Enzo Coccia pulls out a historical photo of a pizza-maker from his wallet(!) and the part where Maurizio De Rosa tells Ed about "the original Ed Levine," a 1750 pizza guidebook writer.

Philadelphia: Pizzeria Stella Reviewed in the 'Philadelphia Inquirer'

[Photographs: Pizzeria Stella] The Philadelphia Inquierer's Craig LaBan files a rave review of restaurateur Stephen Starr's relatively new Pizzeria Stella in the City of Brotherly Love. Did someone say love? Because, damn, LaBan LOVES the pies here. While LaBan still views Marc Vetri's Osteria as the gold standard of pizza in Philly, "...no restaurant has refined the eat-in pizza experience with the single-minded focus, quality ingredients, and overall finesse of Stella." Oh, and after the jump, our man Ed Levine makes a cameo in LaBan's review.... More

The Year That Was: Ed Levine Started a Diet

Ed Levine's Serious Diet Adam Kuban 7 comments

The Year That Was, as measured by Ed's waistline. Ed started his diet on January 10. He flirted briefly with 100-calorie snack packs, was rebuked for it, and then renounced them. Still questionable: Ed's ideal diet breakfast--Diet Coke, potato chips, and a banana. Then again, he did discover his inner bok choy, which makes a weird kind of sense, I suppose. And for a series of posts that you'd think would have been fairly innocuous, it managed to incite mild controversy when The-Feedbag's Josh Ozersky attacks Ed and then posts a retraction. My main beef with Ed's diet posts is that they have inspired my girlfriend to get on my case about starting my own serious diet. But let's focus... More

Fornino Pizza Delivery to Serious Eats Holiday Bowling Party

Slice Erin Zimmer 7 comments

Last night, Serious Eaters booked it to Williamsburg to celebrate the holidays at The Gutter. While the alley doesn't serve hot dogs, chicken fingers, or other standard bowling fare—though I did spot beef jerky—they luckily have a BYOF policy. What would our "Food" be? Delivery pizza from Fornino. We weren't the only ones with this idea, either. Fornino is just a half-mile away, so they'll bring it right to the alley. Our four pies included: sausage, artichoke and tomato, mushrooms with truffle oil, and a basic Margherita. Sausage was first to go, and by far the crowd favorite. Truffles... More
