Ten days ago, I posted a message asking about good NY-style pizza in Seattle. Thanks to everyone who responded!
Last night, I went to the recommended "A New York Pizza Place" for the first time. I was excited by the neighborhood feel, the interior active ambience, and the friendliness of the staff. And the pizza looked right: good visible slight grease action, thin crust, and a bit of bubbling in the cheese and crust.
The pizza was quite good. Certainly one of the better pies I've had in Seattle. Only concern: unfortunately, the crust wasn't exactly right - even after different samples. The taste of the crust was pretty good, but it fell short of the desired crispness. A little chewier than "authentic" NY-style.
I realize everyone has different tastes in pizza and food in general. But after all the conversation my initial posting generated, I thought I'd share my review.
In short, it's a great place to go. Post Alley Pizza might edge them out in taste quality, but the location and interior doesn't come near the "pizza place" feel of A New York Pizza Place. Maybe I'll ask for "extra crispy" next time I return!
