New York The Serious Eats Team 9 comments

Being a vegetarian in New York isn't the challenge it used to be, but that doesn't mean it's always easy.

With that in mind, here are 60 recommendations for restaurants that accommodate vegetarians without disappointing carnivores. More

It's a big, wide pizza world out there. And as much as we'd love to be everywhere at once, such feats remain stubbornly limited to the realm of imagination. What better way to bridge the divide than by asking you, dear readers, to tell us what's great? More

Brooklyn: Everything On The Menu at Best Pizza

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 33 comments

Opened just over a year ago, Best Pizza has fast become one of our favorite pizzerias in New York, and yeah, it's mostly because they serve some of the tastiest by-the-slice stuff around. Since opening the shop, the menu has expanded ever-so-slightly to include sandwiches and a single salad. But man, oh man what good sandwiches those are. Check out everything they've got on the menu.

A Pizza Snob's Approach To Toppings

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 107 comments

As a writer for the people, I often try and suppress my inner pizza snob. I try and pretend that all pies are created equal, and that there is goodness to everything on a crust. Sometimes I even manage to convince myself. After all, if tens of thousands of people enjoy eating buffalo chicken pizza, there's got to be something good about it that I'm missing, right? Well today, I'm letting diplomacy take a little breather and laying out a few of my hard and fast ground rules about pizza toppings. More

NYC Pizza Cultural Literacy

Here's the tweet that inspired this post:

Yes, @alexandrak, such a post does exist, and if your boyfriend finds what I'm about to write all TL;DR, he can check it out: The 10 Best Pizzas in NYC » That's a solid list, no doubt. And if his NYC pizza research stops there, I'm sure he'd be happy. But I think simply dropping a best-of list on a New York newbie does him a bit of a disservice. After all, he's moving to a pizza mecca. I think a little context is in order.


Pizza Obsessives: Frank Pinello of Best Pizza

Slice Meredith Smith 13 comments

If you were at Sandwich Fest two weeks back, you most likely picked up an amazingly delicious meatball sub from Best Pizza. After running into Pizza Obsessive alum amusebouche1 at the festival, I couldn't get those hot seat questions out of my mind. Luckily, I was able to find a willing interviewee in pizzaiolo and Best Pizza (reviewed here) owner Frank Pinello. More

The 10 Best Pizzas in NYC

Slice The Serious Eats Team 80 comments

When deciding on this list, certainly history, setting, and pedigree had an impact, but in the end, it was all about the flavor. We didn't care whether the joint was 80 years old, or 8 months old, as long as they served a tasty pie. And here they are. Our favorite pizzas in the city. A mix of the old, a mix of the new, a representation of most of the boroughs, a bit of something delicious for everyone. More

Top This: How to Make Pickled Vegetable Pizza (à la Best Pizza)

Slice Erin Mosbaugh 10 comments

Williamsburg's Best Pizza has been getting a fair amount of attention for its pizza (oh, and these guys liked it, too). But head pizzaman Frank Pinello says he doesn't listen to the hype. He says that if he's doing something right—or something wrong—his customers will tell him about it personally. Seeing how we can't get enough of the Pickled Vegetable Pizzaand everything else served at Best Pizza—I'd say he's doing something very right. So right, in fact, that I raced over to Best to learn how to make the pickled veg for this awesome pie. This is a pickling recipe and pizza recipe in one—the best of both worlds! More

In the end, we couldn't rank one above the rest—but we can present you 15 meatballs in New York City we love. More

A Sandwich a Day: Best Pizza's Meatball Sub

New York Adam Kuban 18 comments

The meatballs themselves are a mixture of Pat La Frieda short rib, spices and herbs that Best would not specify, some pecorino Romano, and a little ricotta. And, get this: They're blasted in the wood-fired oven, giving them a slightly chewy sear with a little bit of charring, with the rendered fat poured back on after the meatballs are nestled in the bread.

Outtake: Best Pizza's Surplus Oven Real Estate

Slice Adam Kuban 2 comments

[Photograph: Adam Kuban] "That's one hell of an oven these guys are working with. Wish I could cook in something like that," said dmcavanagh in a comment on my Best Pizza review today. What I didn't show you all, though, is the surplus oven real estate that extends into the Best Pizza backyard area. You can see it above. That's all oven, folks. Unused oven. See, that's an old coal-fired bakery oven. The back half of it, which extends about 15 feet into Best's backyard, is walled off from the portion that's actually used. (Best Pizza uses wood, too,...
