I was actually a bit underwhelmed given all the hype about the place. Solid slice, but not in the 9’s for me. I likened it to Santillos in NJ which I actually find a notch above this pie.

John’s OG Bleeker Street, half pepperoni. Cooked perfect, one of the favorites

The crust is perfection—charred without tasting burnt. The sauce, not overly acidic or sweet—a wonderful balance. Although half the pizza had ricotta, it was not oily or soggy in the slightest. The hand feel of the pizza is amazing, zero flop with the slight residue of “pizza dust”. Worth it, order for pick up during the pandemic! Edit: I had to re-post this review with a more appropriate score. The more I thought about it, the more a rating of 9.0 didn’t do this pizza justice.

Very good over all . Amazing crisp. Just very thick tomato-y sauce

I shouldn’t have waited to eat it getting back into Jersey. Crust was incredible, sauce was excellent, I can definitely see this being in the 9’s fresh.

As advertised. Crust is very good. Sauce is money and the cheese cooked perfectly.

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!
