'New York Times' on the Drop of the Dollar Slice

A price war sprang up between Bombay Fast Food/6 Ave. Pizza and neighboring Joey Pepperoni's. While Joey's isn't really entangled in the thick of it, they initiated the first price drop from $1.50 to $1.00. The family run Indian pizza parlor and candy shop Bombay had no choice but to slash their prices as well. But things get really nasty when an all out 'Game of Thrones' style power/price struggle began to escalate with the arrival of a third slice shop, a 2 Bros. outlet. More

Dear Slice: Zimari Dollar Slices 'Not as Bad as You'd Expect'

Clicking in to the Slice inbox today, some intel from our friend Fred. --The Mgmt. I went to Zimari this afternoon, and the $1 slice is not as bad as you'd expect (he raved). The crust is kind of cardboardy, but I've had a lot worse at more expensive places, and the cheese and sauce are quite decent; the latter has sort of a basil flavor, though no actual basil of course.Recommended procedure is to take out your slice from Zimari and then go the hot-dog vendor at the southeast corner of 33rd and Park, who has an oddly large...

Pizza Special at Little Luzzo's

From tipster Mark R.: "Had a slice there yesterday, place seems to be having a special. Slices are $1.50 instead of $2.50, and Sicilian slices are $2 instead of $3. The special will last for a couple of weeks. Regular slice much better than Sicilian. The latter is too bready, while the former has a fine, crisp slightly burned crust, tangy and sweet tomato sauce, and good size blobs of melted mozzarella on them." Little Luzzo's: 119 East 96th Street, New York NY 10029 (b/n Park and Lex; map)... More

Pizza for $1 at St. Marks 2 Brothers Pizza Plus

I'd buy that for a dollar. Walking down the street, if you see a sign advertising pizza for one measly dollar, I don't care who you are, you stop in and get a slice. It's a moral duty to be this thrifty, to take advantage of a deal like that. Keep your expectations low, and you might be surprised. Looks like pizza. I guess the 2 Bros. people have figured out how to eke a profit using the strategy of premade components, finding a high-traffic area, and doing some serious volume. A new branch of 2 Bros. Pizza (at... More

$1 Pizza on St. Marks Place

The blog Blondie and Brownie reports on 2 Bros. Pizza, which offers dollar slices on St. Marks Place: "The pizza wasn't the greatest, but it was a dollar. I'd rate it as not quite as good as 99 Cent Fresh Pizza, but better than Prince Deli 99 cent pizza. If you're a starving NYU student or a hungry person wandering around the village I give it two thumbs up." [via Serious Eats New York] 2 Bros. Pizza 32 St. Marks Place, New York NY 10003 (Second/Third; map) 212-777-0600 2brospizza.com... More

Frank's Pizza

FRANKLY, MY DEAR, IT'S NOT VERY GOODLet's call this the Slice home game—rather, the home-wrecking game. Surely the ramifications are nothing quite that serious, but the topic that sparked the spat certainly is.A wistful wife swears by her standby pizza place. Her dubious husband wants no part of it. Who you gonna call? That was how Our Leader and I stumbled upon Frank's Pizza, a Gramercy Park mainstay that I left wishing would not stay.Frank's is the kind of place I really did want to like. Its postage-stamp-size environs are inviting to sidewalk strollers. The vinyl-covered diner stools are as... More
