John's on 44th is TOTALLY different from the one in the Village. They use different recipes - I'd highly recommend skipping Times Square and going to the Bleecker St. location. Better atmosphere, too.

I've only been to the one in Times Square. Although I don't remember much about the pizza, the restaurant itself is seriously cool with that stained glass dome from its remnants as a former church. Its worth going there at least once.

Yes the pizza is different but I wouldn't say totally different. You'll probably have a bit of a wait outside in the village

What are your favorite pizza places in NYC (only NYC, not Brooklyn).

I tried to find past posts. We had a great pizza debate a while ago.

From memory.....

Now, these are my top picks so there is room for debate. Also you have to include the boroughs. Some of the best food (ethnic) is outside of Manhattan. The rents get so crazy here that the turnover makes it hard for good food to stick around. Queens and the like have family run business's for 20 years or more.

Hence the great Grimaldi's/Patsy's split which is famous for the feuding family.

In no particular order

Bleeker Street pizza
Denino's Staten Island
Sullivan St. Bakers---47th and 10th
Joe's ---Carmine street
Maffies---21st and 6th ave---ask for the grandma or grandpa pie! not slice
Franny's---Prospect Heights
Lazzara's Pizza cafe---high 30's around 7th ave--considered the best
Totonno's ---Coney Island---never been but always makes the list of great pie's
Una Pizza on 12th and 1st---fond memories right in the heart of bar central--probably have thrown up more times on that block than anywhere else in the world.
Nicks---Queens
Grimaldi's and Johns on Bleeker are still my favorites but are very famous and were mentioned before.

That was back in the 1990s in Manhattan when there were lots of pizza joints calling themselves "Ray's Original" or "Ray's Famous" or wot-evah.

Basically, people would have some large electric ovens and throw in some sandwiches and a little pasta, then call themselves that name. They were pretty good pizza, but never great. I have no idea why the name was so important to them, since if they were in a good location and made pretty good pizza, they'd get lots of customers anywayz.

Brick oven pizza is far better, and some liked focaccia bread, too.

It's just about across the street from the Majestic Theater (Phantom of the Opera - seemingly has been playing there forever) on W44th.

Here's their website - http://www.johnspizzerianyc.com/index2.htm The photo gallery shows the dome.

My wife and I went there when we saw Phantom of the Opera years ago. We stumbled into John's sort of by accident because it was cold that day and it was nearby, so we decided to go there because it was handy... but between the cool surroundings of the restaurant and spending about $25 for two of us - in the theater district, no less - I was thrilled at our good luck.

Yup, Papa John's is far and away the best "fast-food pizza." But if you live in a relatively big city, it shouldn't be too hard to find a better alternative, that isn't some national chain.

01-24-09, 12:30 PM
I don't know about the original Rays, but the one I always think of is on 6th Avenue in the Village.

In the Village, I'm partial to John's on Bleecker for whole pies, or Joe's on Carmine for slices.

I don't know about the Bronx or Queens but Di Fara's makes the best pie in Brooklyn. Totonno's is still good but not as good as it used to be.

In Staten Island i like Joe and Pat's and Deninos.

01-24-09, 12:43 PM
FYI Pasty Grimaldi, the founder of what most people vote to be the best pizza in New York and who sold his brand many years ago, is back in the business. And he's selling by the slice, which is an awesome slap in the face to the "whole pie only" nazi elitists

Soo right. Don't listen to the hype here about John's Times Square. :) Going to Bleecker St. means you get the better pizza AND get to avoid Times Sq.

I agree with J from Jersey earlier - John's Bleecker for pies, Joe's for a slice. You won't beat that in NYC.

Sbarro's is pretty good. They have some $8 breakfast special, they have overpriced pasta and meat (chicken, meatballs, etc) dishes for about $8 or so, and they have some oven where the pizza spins slowly like it's in a big ferris wheel.

Their $3 or $4 pizza is pretty good, but the place is mostly a tourist trap, much like the various Smiler's restaurants. It's not junk, it all tastes good, but way overpriced.

As for the OP's question: it depends on whether you're talking about Ray's Famous Original, Ray's Original Famous, Original Ray's Famous, Famous Ray's Original...

Sometime in the 70s - I think - the name caught on, for some reason. It's not one chain, it's just a name that people attached randomly to pizza joints. As far as I know, nobody owns it.

I don't eat pepperoni unless it's a Halal pizza. The Kosher places can't mix meat and dairy, so only the Halal places will have beef or turkey pepperoni, as I don't eat pork.

I like anchovies on my pizza, but the only problem is that if I'm also having wings, I can't eat wings and anchovies at the same time. It just seems funny.

I can have anchovies in my caesar salad, but if I'm having a meat sandwich, then no anchovies then either.

Seriously, if you look at a map SI is basically part of Jersey
I've been to SI about 2-3 times in my life. I've been on the SI Ferry a few times, and one was to meet some gal who lived there. The other was the Forum Party, and I can't remember the 3rd.

When I go to Bayonne, they're on the other side of the Bayonne Bridge, but I've never known much about SI. Lots of Italians, from what I hear.

Trenton, NJ is actually in the Philly area, so stuff gets merged from different states.

I like anchovies on my pizza, but the only problem is that if I'm also having wings, I can't eat wings and anchovies at the same time. It just seems funny.



Yeah, same thing happens to me with anchovies and pepperoni. It's one or the other, but not both.

Is Little Caesars still in business?

I think they sell an equivilent of the five dollar footlong. Regardless, if Little Caesars is to be considered Pizza, I apparently do not like Pizza.

haha. What do you guys think about Pizza Hut? I've seen their ads lately promoting all natural ingredients but their pies are just so greasy. Can't remember the last time I had pizza hut, must have been like 4 years ago when it was the only thing I could find

Pizza Hut is good in a nostalgic little kid way, but I don't know if my tastes have changed (probably) or if the quality has gone downhill (also probably), but it is certainly no where near as good as it used to be.

The corner of 1st and 1st would obviously mean 1st avenue and 1st street.

I kinda grew up on the 3 different Original Pizza locations in Brooklyn: Ave L, Ave U and Ralph Ave. L&B Spumoni Gardens is still awesome, but has declined in recent years, probably a change in ownership.

The FDNY is still not sure what sparked a blaze that ripped through the landmark Totonno's pizzeria in Coney Island. It took firefighters nearly two hours to put out the fire.

Not good. This is probably the second best pizza joint in Brooklyn. Hopefully they'll be able to rebuild the place.

I live now in central NJ and can't find a decent pizza joint in the area. :(

If you are up for a little drive this summer go over to the Jersey Shore they have fantastic Italian food. 2 places in particular in Bradley Beach and Neptune are Vic's and Pete and elda's.

Great and packed all summer. Pete's has big screen tv's and always have the games on. The pies are right up there with NYC's and probably a 35 minute drive from you.

I live in the area of Original Pizza (on Ralph Ave). It's not bad.

L&B, in all honestly, is the best pizza (well, their Square slice is) I have ever tasted. I have it whenever I can.

Pete and Elda's is WAY too thin. It's like pizza on a communion wafer.
