1. Wiseguy NY Pizza 300 Massachusetts Ave NW , Washington DC, DC 20001 (Chinatown)

New York-style pizza is its own animal, and here in DC, only Wiseguy NY Pizza in the Mount Vernon Triangle manages to replicate it. It imports its Parmigiano-Reggiano and olive oil from Italy; makes its own marinara sauce from canned tomatoes imported from Italy; and, best of all, uses a specialized filtration process (seriously) to replicate New York water, which serious pizza aficionados consider essential to the New York slice. The tin-cieling'd parlor features plenty of knickknacks like a prominently displayed tommy gun, part of a collection of Big Apple nods including black and white city photos, an old-timey radio, and a 7ft replica of the Statue of Liberty.
