Hello Pizza in Morningside's the NY slice-style sister concept to Pizzeria Lola, and successfully combines possibly America's most popular greeting with possibly America's most popular eating
Scrapping the scrap-wood-chic aesthetic of Lola, Hello rocks (maybe synths?) a neon-y '80s aesthetic.
Hello. This is not the door you're looking for...
Don't lose your head, but... they'll let you post your photobooth photos on the wall! So also, don't lose your pants
In case you hadn't noticed, "Hello, My Name Is..." stickers are pretty much everywhere. Your English teacher would probably call them a "motif"
And, in a world where hello stickers are an icon, Elmer Krumwiede (their inventor) is a god
Eminently foldable slices (not available at Lola) include this fennel sausage/naturally cased pepperoni/ criminis Hello Trinity, also the catchphrase of matriculating freshman who didn't have the grades for Wesleyan
Whole 18in pies range from signatures like this artichoke & spinach to the Smokey The Pig (adobo BBQ sauce, smoked mozzarella, house-cured bacon, applewood-smoked onions, rosemary, and maple syrup)
This banh mi-looking motha's actually the Korean Cowboy (Korean meatballs and gochujang BBQ sauce under pickled onions, daikon, carrot, and cilantro) and it's joined on the sub menu by Old Skool Balls: gravy, mozzarella, and Provolone atop "Italian balls", which they swear aren't actually "testicolis"
Wash it down with by-the-glass/ -carafe vino, or one of these fine local beers, which means you no longer have to be nervous about saying hello to a Lonely Blonde.
