hi! some friends and i are going out for brick oven pizza in Manhattan (p.s. i know how good the places on S.I. and the bronx are ... we're trying to stick to the island) and we're trying to decide where to go. as always, we have fights - i like Patsy's, on the east side, they like Arturo's, on Houston. So if anyone has any suggestions, perhaps my friends and I could try a *new* place for really good brick oven pizza.
we're looking for a nice ambience (not neon lights and formica tables), preferably a smoking section since we're the last five smokers in new york city.
