A slice of heaven


No… this hasn’t turned into a food blog, but I figured I would share some iPhone pics from our recent visit to NYC – I love having the camera with me (Lori’s iPhone) all the time.

There are lots of cities that lay claim to having the best pizza in the US, and needless to say, New York City is definitely one of them. Luckily we get to visit what I consider to be the most incredible city in the world quite often, and every time we do, we like to sample some of the local fare, especially the pizza. John’s Pizzeria on Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village has long been a favorite of ours, and judging by the number of “Top 10 Pizza in NY” lists it is on, we aren’t alone in our admiration. I can remember visiting John’s with friendsย one Saturday night back in 1989 when Lori and I lived and worked in Manhattan, so now every time we return it brings back great memories.

You wouldn’t believe how many pizza joints there are in NYC… it feels like there’s literally one on every block. In my book there’s no such thing as bad pizza, but to survive the competition in New York you’d better be good! Besides, if you can make it there you can make it anywhere… wait, isn’t that a line from a song or something ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. This reminds of a picnic in the mountains of Sicily where we hiked up to this remote cabin, complete with with outdoor pizza oven, we had garlic pizza as a starter, a basic tomato n herbs pizza as main and a nutella pizza for desert ๐Ÿ™‚

    That looks like an amazing pizza and like yourself I don’t think there’s a bad pizza, in fact I consider pizza to be the perfect food as you can do so many variations.

      Oh that’s easy… Rosalie’s on Cottage Street. It’s only open between May-October though, otherwise I’d be spending a lot more time on the island. I’ve eaten lots of pizza from up and down the east coast, and honestly… Rosalie’s stacks up against the best of them. Thin crust, salty cheese, and sweet sauce – they do it right there ๐Ÿ™‚

I'd love to hear from you...
