O.K., I give up, I'm hungry. Is there a joint in central OC that serves real, classic, New York style pizza by the slice -- OR -- a joint or restaurant that serves real, classic, Margherita pizzas? What I want is not too much to ask: crust nirvana, a nice mellow sauce, and a light to moderate amount of good cheese. It's simple, really.
I have been to a place in Irvine with New York in its name (I forget the exact name) and also to Ray's, both of which were puke-awful and, come to think of it, oddly similar.
