1. Joey's Stone Fired Pizza 517 South St, Philadelphia, PA 19147

From a local retired teacher who spent his childhood summers toiling in his dad's/grandad's pizza joints, Joey's renovated the former Venuto's w/ Tuscan yellow walls surrounding red booth/slate gray table seating for 64, including eight at a bar facing a squat oven tiled with volcanic rocks that bakes full pies in under eight minutes, all amidst the gazes from framed photos of everyone from Marilyn to Ali to The Boss, as well as Mickey Mantle's 1954 contract for a cool $21K, clearly not penned by that other Boss.
