It's too bad NY doesn't have great pizza like Boston, but we can always hit New Haven on the way home for that.
Pizza? There's no good pizza anywhere since Pompeii closed up.

Not until the Italian government helps the people of Pompeii rebuild. Rome treats the south as non-citizens, no pizza ovens for me, until they do the right thing.

We're in the city this weekend to pick up my daughter, who has been on an internship there. My teenage son has taken to making cheesecake at home, so he's looking for inspiration. (As to where we'll be, she's staying at an NYU dorm in the village and we're staying at a relatives' place in Chelsea; we're also going to be taking a jaunt down to the area around Sheepshead Bay and Marine Park to see the bridge she's been mostly working on, and we'll be up in the Inwood area a bit).
1. Junior's
2. Jean Danet in Bay Ridge.

My faves.

If you are in Sheepshead Bay, Roll N Roaster is a unique fast food place worthy of a stop, also Totonno Pizzeria (Open Th-Sun) in Coney Island also well worth it

As a lifetime New Yorker and pizza aficionado, I am firmly on Team New Haven.

For NY pizza, listen to Prez (who has NOT done Totonno, which is the best) but Johns of Bleeker, DIFara in Midwood, the original Grimaldi's by Brooklyn Bridge. The other Grimaldi chain locations are meh.

I don't know but when they had the Grand Central location it was as good as Brooklyn.

Thanks - and my son, who will seek to reverse engineer their trade secrets, thanks you as well.

I think around Sheepshead Bay our daughter has some favorites she's going to want to share but I'll keep those in mind.

I don't eat cake, talking about Junior's as an entity not its cheesecake.

So weird that someone not from Brooklyn even knows where Sheepshead Bay is. Was there 3x in the last 2 weeks.

I've never been to Junior's original location- it may be magical. I've been in the Theater/Time's Square location. That neighborhood is pretty much all bad restaurants.

One of my favorite restaurants on the UWS was called Havana Central- out of business now- it was wonderful food, prepared slowly, and a nice quiet dining room.

We stepped out a play, looking for dinner one night- "oh, there's a havana Central on 46th street! Perfect!" Except it was an overcrowded loud nightmare.

So my hate of Junior's might be entirely misplaced relative to the branch Icky frequents, is the point.

I haven't been to the one in Brooklyn since the 90s. When the Grand Central location was around, I grabbed stuff to go often and it was #winning. I have never been to the midtown location. Remember, I live in NY so #notatourist.
