This is the kind of pizza that makes you sad when it’s all gone. Great sauce, unique cheese, perfect New York flop.

While New Haven may be the capital of O.G. pizza, the original John’s of Bleecker Street is as old world as it gets in NYC. Established in 1929, John’s offers the best coal-fired pies in Manhattan. The ingredients are simply outstanding. The sauce is deliciously sweet with thick & hearty plum tomatoes scattered about. The cheese is a rich & gooey mozzarella spread generously throughout the pie. The dough is a rare well-balanced combo of chewy & crispy with a beautifully crispy charred crust and that perfect flavor you can only get with dough made in New York City water. You know the ingredients are fresh and fantastic when there is little-to-no grease dripping from the slice. The only issues keeping this score from approaching perfection are: they do not serve slices; you can only order a medium or large pie. But the big caveat: it does NOT travel well. You must eat on-site or within a few minutes of receiving the box. Heed my advice on that. The expectations are high and there’s a lot of hype surrounding this joint. Believe the hype, make the trip and enjoy the best pizza Manhattan has to offer.

So this was the BEST spot on the NYC food tour, and the next couple times I was in the city, I'd take a cab all the way out here, stopping off at Rocco's for dessert. They only sell full pies which means I'd have no choice but to eat 5-6 slices every time...perfect charred crust makes it hard to stop though!

Retro review 12/19. Obviously it lives up to the hype, all around amazing slice. Also pulled the veteran move and ate it with a fork and knife

Great pizza and calzone. Pepperoni is definitely better then the plain cheese but it’s all about the crust here. No flop, great crunch, perfect amount of char, and yet still has body and a nice chewiness. Calzones are also good.
