Best has always lived up to its name, especially on those late nights when you’re the last to nab a cheese slice. A wood-burning oven kisses pies with a distinct char and basil leaves add a hint of freshness to every bite. The slices here are better than they need to be for a late-night meal, and now you can stop in for a bite or have them delivered to you in the daylight.
This classic paper-plate NYC slice shop isn’t doing anything fancy, just serving very good, crisp pizza by the slice (quite large slices, in fact). Opened by Frank Pinello in 2010, try the classic 20-inch round Cheese pie at Best Pizza, which one can accessorize with various toppings. All pies here are fired in the shop’s wood-fueled oven.
