Finding Incredible New York Pizza
I figured I would have some luck finding a great slice of pizza in Little Italy, and there were a few places that looked like possible options. However, I had read about the Vodka Pizza at Pomodoro Restaurant & Pizzeria and when I saw it, I knew this was what I was looking for. There was nothing fancy or touristy about Pomodoro and didn’t have any of the tourist vibe that exists in other parts of Little Italy. It was a very casual pizza shop with some tables on the front patio and a counter where you could place your order. The staff appeared to be casual, hard-working guys, and I think the owner/manager, who was wearing a Yankees t-shirt, was the one who took my order at the register. After reading the reviews, I knew I wanted to try a slice of the Vodka Pizza and the guy at the register told me I was making a great choice.
The pizza at Pomodoro was everything I was hoping for. While I still don’t understand the fascination with New York bagels, it’s hard to beat New York pizza if we’re talking about the Vodka Pizza at Pomodoro. And if someone ever asks me for a recommendation on where to get good pizza in New York City, I know exactly where I’ll be sending them.
