One of the few dishes I can test for authenticity is New York pizza. Unless there are subtle differences lost on me, NY pizza is the same as the pizza I grew up eating in Central Jersey and the Jersey Shore. Wiseguy NY Pizza at 300 Massachusetts Ave NW promises authentic NY pizza by the slice so I had to try it.

I ordered one plain cheese slice, which was $3 even with tax. It is an authentic NY slice of pizza, no doubt, and it was perfect. I won’t argue with anyone who prefers different styles of pizza, but if you like this type, and I do, I don’t think you’ll find anything better. My go-to place is typically Tony’s New York pizza in Fair Lakes/Fairfax, which I usually think is almost-but-not-quite as good as the real thing. Wiseguy, despite the name that sounds a bit too cutesy, is the real thing.
