Delancey A new neighborhood parlor decorated with chairs from an old bowling alley and photos by co-owner Molly Wizenberg (aka the
popular Orangette blogger). The pizza has a thin, charred crust good enough to eat on its own―but is even better topped with
uncooked tomato sauce and spicy Padrón peppers.

Serious Pie Arguably the most beloved restaurant in celeb chef Tom Douglas’s stable. The crust is light, with a puffy edge and yeasty chew. Meats are cured in-house.
