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.
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.
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:
- Ray's New York Pizza
- Mario's New York Pizza
- Taste of New York
- Little Italy Pizza and Pasta
- Rosa's Pizza
These places ought to get us started. I'll be giving them a taste on my next trip to Atlanta, for sure.
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,
Anyway, I’m adding Vinnie’s to my Locator Page for Savannah, Georgia. Sounds like it's worth a try.
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:
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.
