Tucked away in an aging strip mall - and prompted by the promise of real New York pizza - we stopped in with teens in tow. Graffiti covered walls implied this was or has been a hangout for local sports heros for some time. Seated immediately at our choice of table, the friendly waitress took our drink order and let us know we were her first table today. Hopefully her shift had just started!
After a short discussion we opted for two large pizzas, some bread sticks and a Caesar salad to share. Refills of drinks were offered before we could ask. Breadstick and salad arrived quickly - lettuce crisp and breadsticks puffy, warm and soft - with ranch and marinara sauces on side. Without the sauces - the bread was non-descript - no crust, no chew, no garlic.
Pizza pies arrived with crust thin and edge nicely darkened but not blistered like from a wood burning pizza oven. Cheese pizza went quickly as did the margarita with thin strings of fresh basil. The most surprising and in the end disappointing to our palates was the sauce - pale, a bit thin and almost cream added flavored vs robust tomato flavor. Better than franchise pizza and likely less fattening as it was very thin but not memorable. At over $50 for the tab - not living up to high hopes. Given only one other table during our meal - maybe takeout is more popular?
