Rosie’s New York Pizza is constantly mobbed; it can take an hour to get a pizza. Why? “Probably because it’s a really really good pie, the likes of which have not been seen in these provincial parts,” says Ken Hoffman. The dough—hand-tossed and everything—makes a nearly perfect crust: sturdy, supple, awesome. The toppings are generous, fresh, and well proportioned. The pizza is also gigantic—“big enough to feed your hyper family driven mad by the wait,” says Ken. Rosie’s sells by the slice, too.

It’s been open only a couple of weeks, and already half the neon sign is burnt out. Just like New York.
