If you're going to Tekserve to Jim Leff's book signing, don't bother going to the new hyped, high-end pizza place Waldy's.
Located on 6th Ave and 28th St. I went in for half a margherita pizza, which I consider the acid test for a pizza joint. The crust was as dry and crunchy as the wood board they serve it on. I like thin, crisp crust, but this was just dry. I was surprised to see how much salt they sprinkle on the crust before baking and WOW can you taste it.
If you need great food in this neighborhood, got to Great Burritos, the completely frightening-looking Mexican place on 23rd and 6th Ave that serves amazingly great tacos and tortas
