Pizza Club: San Marzano – 2/25/09

Last night, a great Pizza Club took place at San Marzano on the Lower East Side. The pizza was delicious, although I must admit that it gets harder to distinguish between places the more pizza I eat. I tried four different pies:

MARGHERITA – FRESH MOZZARELLA, SAN MARZANO TOMATOES, OLIVE OIL, BASIL
BIANCA - FONTINA, GORGONZOLA, CARAMELIZED ONIONS (W/O PROSCIUTTO)
QUATTRO FORMAGGI – FRESH MOZZARELLA, FONTINA, RICOTTA, GORGONZOLA
GARDEN VEGETABLE (W/ CHEESE) – SAN MARZANO TOMATOES, SHITAKE MUSHROOMS, CARAMELIZED ONIONS, BELL PEPPERS, OLIVE OIL

Surprisingly, I enjoyed the GARDEN VEGETABLE the most, followed closely by the BIANCA. I don’t think either topped the SANTO pie at Co, but overall I’d say that San Marzano was a more enjoyable dining experience.

For starters, it’s still BYOB since it just opened, so a pre-stop at the Whole Food Beer Room provided us with beverages for the evening. I bought a Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout and some sort of Oatmeal Stout which I can’t recall right now, but both paired very nice with the pizza we had.

The restaurant serves up nine pies, none which are more expensive than $14. We ordered one pie each and ended up with more than enough pizza left over. Every pie I had was solid. They didn’t blow my mind, but I definitely appreciated every bite. From the basil on the Margherita to the cheeses in the Quattro Formaggi, the ingredients were fresh and distinguishable from one another.

The restaurant seats about 30 people, so we took up about 1/3 of the space. The cool thing about the place is unlike most sit down pizza restaurants, you are able to order slices from here, although they start at $3 a piece.

I don’t have a real basis for providing any kind of rating for San Marzano but it was relatively cheap, BYOB, tasty pies, good service, cute atmosphere, and an all around enjoyable experience. A successful Pizza Club outing.

Check out some of my poor photography below, as I will now attempt to document all future pizza clubs! Haha.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in NYC and around the world on I DREAM OF PIZZA. From reviews and recipes to obscure video clips and news articles, this is your one stop shop for all things pizza.
