Very OT - Best Pizza place in New York City

Hey all, me and some buddies are visiting a friend of ours next weekend whose living in Manhattan for the summer, hes about a block and a half from Times Square.

One of my goals is to get the absolute best NY style Pizza while were there, straight up whats the best place? Keep it in Manhattan on the island if you can.

Any other recommendations or sites to see feel free too.

I like Patsy's on 6* Street. I basically go to the same one though every time. Gino's on 83rd.

La Mia on Waverly between Broadway and University, near Washington Square Park is probably my favorite outside of Brooklyn.

Definitely one of the best places for Pizza anywhere.

My fav is John's (the original on Bleeker, there's also one near Lincoln Center). Patsy's is classic "Brooklyn" style in a coal oven, there are several now in Manhattan. Two Boots is very good, as well, if you like a more "gourmet'/funky take on your 'za. These are are thin crust brick oven type pizzas (I think Boots is the only that serves slices). Of course, on nearly every block in Manhattan are the classic pizza joins with the giant sized slices you fold in half to eat.

There's some place in Phoenix that was rated the best pizza in the US just a few weeks ago. I forget what it was called...

My votes: if you're in Manhattan, John's on Bleeker or Patsy's in East Harlem (the original Patsy's, not the chain). In Brooklyn, Grimaldi's. If you're getting a slice as opposed to a whole pie, you have to go to Joe's on Carmine Street. Sometimes I like it better than any of the others.

And yes, I think this is covered exhaustively in the Tourist thread.

The original Rays, and Totonno's. The original Totonno's is in Brooklyn but the Manhattan one is also very good.

Isn't Famous Ray's the one in Grand Central Station? If so, that's my vote. I have been gone to long, every time I go to visit family my first meal is a good NY style pizza.

For an unknown place but still a great one try Mardi Gras on Liberty street (downtown).

I work downtown and all the people I work with rave about this place, I think it's good too. Co-workers from out of town always enjoy it too.

Not a touristy place but known by the local people as one of the better pizza's around.

If your downtown, make a stop here.

Also, got to the top of the rock instead of the Empire state building. You do need reservations but it means no waiting in lines.

I've been to 90% of the places already listed. Most in Manhattan but you have to go to DiFarra's in Brooklyn for the best pizza in NORTH AMERICA. It's either avenue I or J and 14th or 15th street. It's the Q strain stop. It's far from where I live but well worth going there. Man! Old man DiMarco makes them like no one else. It's this tiny place that is always packed. ALWAYS. But it's well worth the wait. Once you try this pizza all other pizza will pale in comparison. Best pizza in NYC BY FAR. In my opinion.

Di Fara's pissses me off...

went there last Saturday (would never drive on Avenue J on a Sunday). Got there at 4:30 coming back from the beach - thought it was an odd-enough time to actually get a slice. Well, they were closed - sign said 6-8 because they had a big order, but they closed early.

In Manhattan - I also like John's. There is also a really good place on first avenue between Houston and 1st street on the west side of the street. Good place to get a pizza after a couple beers at dba. Used to think Two Boots had good pizza too, before it went vegetarian. Their jalapeno pizza was real good (it was grinded into the sauce), and Emily Litello, Larry Tate and Newman were good pizzas just because of the names.

Two Boots is great and it's relatively inexpensive.

An underrated place is Smiling Pizza, right above the 7th Avenue F Train stop in Park Slope. It gets really crowded with people coming out of the subway, but I love their slices.

I like Smiling also...

but never really thought there was much to it other than a basic slice. If you're in Brooklyn, Lenny's on 5th avenue off Prospect Avenue is a find also. Roma Pizza on 7th Avenue is good too. Pino's on Union around Hicks is good too. These are outside the usual suspects, Totonno's, Grimaldi's and Spumoni Garden. Also, the Grandma Pizza at Joe & Joe's, a dive that serves inconsistent pizzas, is really good when you get the good one.
