First and foremost, you're never going to find anything that is EXACTLY like New York style Pizza, unless you go to New York. Everyone who actually knows NY Pizza is aware of this. I'm originally from NY, and I will confirm to all of you who are from the north (or affiliated)...this is where you need to go. Let me tell you, this is as close as you will get, and it is absolutely delicious.
The crust is thin (as it is supposed to be). The cheese is just the right color and texture (not brown/burnt like most places around here serve). It's pretty much one of those small, hole-in-the-wall, cozy pizza joints that's familiar to anyone who won't eat from a chain. The guys who manage the place even have strong NY accents, so any of us should feel right at home! Another plus...excellent table service.
