Jim's Dinner: New Haven Pizza

Erica Marcus | Jul 5, 2001 12:55 PM

I was horrified to read Jim's recent report on the decline of both Pepe's and Sally's Apizza in New Haven. I grew up in New Haven and though I don't get back all that often (I live in Brooklyn), it is an enormous source of comfort to me to know that should I ever need it, the glories of New Haven pizza are just two hours away. (Two years ago I had pizza at the place in Naples where pizza margherita was supposedly invented; it was great, but no better than a tomato-cheese pie from Sally's, or a clam pie from Pepe's.)

New Haveners who are reading this, please weigh in!! Is New Haven pizza lost? Is there any other way to explain Jim's experience? Have other places arisen? (What's with The Spot?)
