Rkbar - here goes

Everyone loves NY pizza but where is/are the best places. It's all about the brick pizza oven and most NY'ers are going to say one or all of the following...

Grimaldi's in Brooklyn- Excellent but out in brooklyn and always a long line. Not too much else going on on the menu either.

Patsy's- Formerly Grimaldi's or the other way around. Very good also, located in the Village on 12th Street and University Place. Nice restaurant especially in the summer with the big windows open. Excellent Pizza!

Lombardi's- The ONLY place worth eating at in Little Italy. I had the luck of eating there when Italy won the World Cup a few years ago and it was quite a scene. Pizza's awesome and gotta love a place that includes extra garlic on the toppings list.

Joe's on Bleecker- The famous Bleecker street in the village, a mob scene on the weekends, especially at night. Pizza is good but not anywhere near as good as...

MOTORINO on 12th street in the east village between 1st and 2nd avenue (closer to 1st)- THIS is the best pizza I have had ANYWHERE. Get one all to your own and chow down. I have had three different pizza's from the menu but the Sopressata is to die for. Literally if I had to choose the last meal I ever ate it would be the Sopressata pie from Motorino. It's no 'scene' and the wine list is nice and doable as well. Even the brussel sprout pizza is awesome. LOVE LOVE this place.

Hope this was a help for some of you and PM me any questions you may have for a NYC food hound like me. :)

So now I gotta' leave Brooklyn to get my Fix? I'm no fire inspector but that fire seemed "kind of suspicious"

Supposedly it was the coal fired oven that burns 24/7 that started the fire. They never reopened?

Great idea guys!

I am headed to NYC last weekend in April. What is nice place? We are going to a show on Saturday and would like a nicer place for dinner that night.

Thanks.

Hey, great idea! Thanks for this thread! We'll be in NYC 31 July - 6 August, staying near the NYSE. The COL will be pretty tied up almost all the time from morning til 8 pm, except that he gets off at 6pm on Wednesday and we're going to see Rock of Ages Thursday night. Except for my cousin coming in to spend the day with me Thursday, I will pretty much be on my own the entire week.

This is not my first trip by any means, so I don't plan to go back to places like the Empire State Bldg, Statue of Liberty, etc. I DO plan to go to the MMA - I always do - and do a little shopping on Canal St. I will spend some time checking out those links in the OP, but would also appreciate any other suggestions that might be interesting and safe for someone flying solo.

Oh, last year I had downloaded a NYC transit app on my Droid that I found very useful. I have since deleted it, and now I can't seem to find one that looks familiar. Can anyone recommend a good subway app for a Droid?

Thanks!

ETA: Some of my interests are history, architecture, military stuff, as well as girly things like fashion design. I do NOT like much modern art.

Do a quick search for an app called "on the go"

It updates directly from the NYC Metropolitan Transit Authority site with delays and schedule changes, as well as having full maps searchable by station, line, and connection

Those look great! Wish they were Droid-compatible. However, the COL is considering picking up an iPad - if he does, I'll download them!
