The Manhattan branch of popular Sunset Park bar/pizzeria Toby's Public House finally opened a few weeks ago with a full menu of salads, antipasti, pizza, and desserts. The good news? Their oven is real wood-fired. To the best of my knowledge, it's the only wood-fired pizza oven in the vicinity of Little Italy, which gives it the potential of being the best pizza in Little Italy as well.
