Slice Adam Kuban 2 comments

Photograph from Rubenstein on Flickr New York City schools chancellor Joel Klein is a pizza freak. Who knew? Yesterday, in the New York Post: "Perfect pizza is as good as it gets. [But] it's got to be perfect," said Klein, who said he first developed his pizza passion while studying at Columbia University, when he drove a city cab all over town on weekends. But this is troubling: "If you have a Neapolitan pizza and you pick it up [by the crust] and the tip flops over, that means it's not done right," he said."You should be able to... More

'New York Post' on Di Fara's $5 Slices

Slice Adam Kuban 29 comments

The New York Post checks in with the news that Slice readers have known for weeks—that Di Fara has raised its regular slices to $5. The paper talks to those opposed and those still willing to pay. Point "They must be out of their minds. It would have to be the best slice of pizza in the world," said Phyllis Turim of Brooklyn, who doesn't plan to find out for herself. Counterpoint "When I shop, I always buy what's high-priced," [Dom DeMarco] said. "What I use, other pizzerias don't use." Yours truly was quoted as well, if you feel... More

They're Calling It the 'Pizza Tax'

Slice Raphael Post a comment

It's been in the New York Post a couple days now (here and here). The governor, to shore up revenues in an ailing economy, wants small businesses that deal primarily in cash to go legit on their taxes, which the state says they are underreporting.

'New York Post' Cover Resembles Artwork of Previous Ed Levine Article

Slice Erin Zimmer 1 comment

From left: Ed Levine with his New York Times piece from November 6, 2002; New York Post's Page Six Magazine pizza story from August 31, 2008. Seeing double? A recent piece on six of the hottest pizzerias in New York Post's Page Six Magazine must be channeling its inner Ed Levine-ness. The artwork eerily resembles that of Levine's New York Times piece from 2002 on "The State of the Slice." Modeling his piece yesterday with his most Vanna White-esque charm, Ed had no trouble finding his copy, which was stored safely next to his desk—as if for this very... More

Salmonella Scare Hits the Big Time

Raphael 18 comments

You know something is news when it graces the cover of the New York Post. The main focus of the story is that the burger chains have stopped serving tomatoes on their burgers, and people are upset.

A Slice Is a Slice

Slice Adam Kuban 2 comments

From a story in the New York Post called Walk Like a Local: How to Pass as a Native New Yorker: When hunger strikes and you stop for pizza, keep vocabulary in mind. A "pie" is made up of "slices." You grab a "slice" on your way home from the bar but order a few "pies" if you're watching the Giants game with friends. Always preface your order with "lemmegetta," as in, "lemmegetta a slice." There is no need to specify plain cheese. That's what it means when you order a "slice." Going further, I'd say that you'd complete the... More
