Where do you think the best “Pizza” in “New York” comes from? This is a topic for Great Debate. Fights have been fought over it. Well as far as which borough has the thee best pizza place in all of New York, there are two Borough that are not in the running and three that are.
Some feel that Di Farra in Queens has thee best pizza in New York hands down. Others my fight, and I’d be in this group that thee # 1, Best Pizza Spot in all of New York is, “Without a Doubt,” Tottono’s on Neptune Avenue in Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY.
Now we come to Manhattan, the Borough that has the greatest number of renowned Pizza Parlors of which any one could be considered in the running as New York’s Best, “Pizza!” The Pizza Parlors in question are Patsy’s up in Harlem, John’s on Bleecker Street down in Greenwich Village, Pizza Fresca, the relatively newcomers (about 12 years) in the Flatiron section of Manhattan, and the oldest and “FIRST” Pizzeria in the United States down on Spring Street, the legendary “Lombardi’s.”
All these places make “Great Pizza.” The best Pizza in the whole entire United States, what they call Pizza in Chicago is an abomination. Doesn’t count. It’s not real Pizza, Deep Dish —za. It’s something else, but what it is not is Pizza.
New York makes some of the Greatest in the World. Only in Italy can they make it better, and these aforementioned places; Tottono’s, John’s, Lombardi’s, and Patsy’s can hold their own with any in Italy, even in Napoli.
Well, “I got off on a tangent there.” Hey mention Pizza, and which place is the “BEST” Pizza Parlors in New York and that’s likely to happen.
