Review: Atlanta’s Ammazza Falters

In 1996, when I was 12 years old, my family went to the Olympics in Atlanta. Although I’ve crisscrossed the United States dozens of times since then, I hadn’t been back to Atlanta since then… until earlier this year. My memories of Izzy (what, you don’t remember the famed Olympic mascot?), pin trading (an essential Olympic pastime) and Richard Jewell (did you know he’s been dead for more than a decade?) have long since faded away. So I was excited ...

Milkflower Review: A Pizzeria Blooms In Astoria

Queens is one of New York’s best boroughs for food. But pizza is not its strong suit. If I were to rank the five boroughs in terms of pizza quality and variety, Queens would likely be last.

In any neighborhood in northern Brooklyn, Milkflower might just be considered ...

From time to time I’m asked by people who live on Long Island — or who might be spending a summer weekend in the Hamptons or Fire Island — where to find the best pizza out there.

I recently made the trip out to Port Washington (not, to be confused ...

Surf’s Up At Rocco’s Pizza Pub On Hawaii’s Big Island

Back in 2014, I took my first trip to Hawaii and was really disappointed with the pizza there (see here and here). I know… I know… Hawaii isn’t known for its pizza. But I was impressed with so many other dishes on that trip — from the care that was put into their preparation to the quality of the ingredients used — and it was too bad that didn’t translate to the pizza I ate there. When I returned to ...

I Ate A $45 Pizza… And It Was Worth Every Bite

In a city where a $1 slice of pizza can be found every few blocks, a pizzeria in Midtown East recently introduced a $45 pizza called the DoughDici. Crazy, right? Well I’m here to tell you that it’s actually a very reasonable price. Without even factoring in any labor and ingredient costs, it’s easy to make the case that a pizza dinner for two often costs $45 in New York City. Let’s take the perpetually packed Motorino, for example. My ...
