New York City is no stranger to great pizza, but with dollar slice shops on practically every corner, newcomers to the scene have to try a little bit harder to make themselves stand out... including, apparently, seriously upping the price tag.
Industry Kitchen on South St in the Financial District took inspiration from nearby Wall St for its indulgent 24K pizza, which costs exactly $2,000.
What could possibly make a pizza cost that much? After the squid ink dough rests for 48 hours (which is how far in advance you’ll need to order the pie), it get stretched and topped with Stilton cheese, 24-karat gold leaves, caviar, truffles, and foie gras. The result is a glittery and pungent pizza that is about as rich as the people who would be ordering it (the restaurant tells us it’s sold two of the pies since it was added to the menu in November). While we’re going to safely assume that Joe’s is probably more in your budget, if you find that you’ve recently acquired a large sum of money from a dead relative, this might be a good first stop.

When one thinks of restaurants under metropolitan freeways, cocktails and riverside views don't automatically come to mind. Yet at South Street Seaport's Industry Kitchen, that's just what you'll get. A sign of increased development far Downtown, this industrial-modern space has outdoor seating and an enormous glass window facing the East River. The casual American menu features proteins like cedar-plank salmon and roast chicken, but the real draw is the contemporary pizzas. The pies are cooked in wood-burning ovens and topped with non-traditional ingredients like smoked salmon and capers, and chocolate with marshmallows.
