Union Square’s Newest Pizza Place

Bravo Pizza will be moving into the empty storefront on the corner of 14th Street and Irving Place. The pizza joint should have no trouble competing with Cafe Amore Pizza across the street, which makes some of the city’s least desirable pizza. As the first YELP review on the Cafe Amore page accurately states: If location is everything, then this place has it all. Unfortunately, tasty pizza is not in stock.

Until now, Union Square proper has lacked a quality pizza place. Sure, if you venture a few blocks over to the East Village there are plenty of great options. But sometimes, a five minute walk is just a bit too long when you’re stumbling to the subway at 3AM. Although Bravo isn’t quite first rate, it’s definitely a step up from Cafe Amore. In my opinion it’s better than, say, Famiglia, but not quite as good as Pizza 33.

It’s a welcome addition to Union Square (which will also be getting a Nordstrom Rack, Best Buy, and TGI Friday’s in the coming months), and I imagine it’ll do very well. Whether or not they’ll be able to cover what I’m sure is an outrageous rent is yet to be seen…

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 New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
