New York Pizza in La-La Land

April 16, 2006

After doing some research I’ve found that there are definitely not a lot of choices for the New York Pizza lover in Los Angeles.  Albano’s seems to garner the most passion from ex-New Yorkers, and Lamonica’s has somewhat mixed reviews.  My wife and I have fond memories of a place along the boardwarl at Venice Beach that was quite good.  We arrived in L.A. at 5 pm with plans to get a slice of pizza and watch the sunset.  The slice worked out great, but we found that Venice is not a great place to watch a sunset, at least not in late June.  The sunset was blocked by mountains. 

Testing Technorati Tags for New York Style Pizza

April 15, 2006

I can't figure out why Technorati doesn't notice this blog.  I believe WordPress submits all posts to Ping-o-matic, but that doesn't seem to get Technorati's attention.  So for this post, I'm including some links that are recommended by Technorati.

Map Added to Pizza Locator

April 15, 2006

Okay, so I’m not an artist, but I thought we needed an easy way to see what areas are represented by the New York Pizza Finder, both the one on this blog site and the more detailed site.    Okay, so I’m not an artist…

New York Pizza in Atlanta

April 13, 2006

The mention on Slice was based on a conversation with a New Yorker who found himself in Atlanta and couldn't find a good slice of pie.  I can definitely relate to this situation.  However, I've gotten pretty good at seeking out and finding a good slice if it exists in a particular city. 

I can't give good advice on Atlanta because honestly, I lived there for three years, and was just happy to have a Domino's nearby.  Nuff said about that.  Anyway, If you're looking for good New York Style Pizza in Atlanta, I'd try the following places to get started: 

These places ought to get us started.  I'll be giving them a taste on my next trip to Atlanta, for sure.

A Slice of Pizza in Savannah

April 13, 2006

I was driving home from Florida and thought I might stop in Savannah for a Slice.  I connected to the Web via my Pocket PC Phone and asked Google to help me out.  The predominant response was a pointer to Vinnie’s Van Go-Go’s

I called the number on the site and got NO ANSWER.  After doing a little more research, I found a number of mixed reviews, some loving it and some not so much.  

Anyway, I’m adding Vinnie’s to my Locator Page for Savannah, Georgia.  Sounds like it's worth a try. 

NYPD Pizza – Missing In Action?

April 12, 2006

One of goals for my trip to Orlando was to get a taste of NYPD Pizza.  I blogged about it  once before after reading that they were trying to get good New York Pizza to the masses.  They’re based in Orlando so I thought I’d get the chance to try it out.

While out near Kissimmee, I saw a sign that said NYPD Pizza.  After making a few U-Turns and working my way to the strip mall where I saw the sign, I found nothing—No coming soon or anything.  But I did see a Grand Opening sign for a Chinese place.  I figured maybe NYPD had been there but shut down.

So  a couple days later I’m heading back to S.C., and I figure I’ll stop by the NYPD in downtown Orlando.  I had Googled it and found the address to be:

(407) 872-6973
373 N Orange Ave
Orlando, FL 32801

 So I called the number and no answer.  So I drove by and guess what I found?  An abandoned building!  So what’s going on with NYPD Pizza? 

I checked their official site tonight   and they show only one store in Orlando, located west of town.  So now I’ll have to make a trip to Charleston to try out NYPD Pizza.
