Bleecker Street Pizza: Excellent Nonna Maria & Grandma Slices

May 15, 2008

I was onto Bleecker Street Pizza way before Food Network called it the best in New York. I still think their Nonna Maria is one of the best specialty slices in Manhattan. Pass on their plain slices and instead opt for the Nonna, dotted with dollops of chunky, garlicky marinara, sprinkled with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, and covered in fresh and grated mozzarella. This is a slice for the ages, it’s hearty, well structured, and absolutely delicious. The Grandma slice is also superb, maybe even better than the Nonna. Read on to find out why.



Bleecker Street Pizza: Nonna Maria Making a case for NY’s Best Specialty Slice

December 5, 2007

“The Best Specialty Slice in New York”, quite a claim I realize, but the Nonna Maria at Bleecker St. Pizza, with a bed of grated Grande Mozzarella supporting slices of Fresh Mozzarella and large dollops of garlicky, tomatoey Marinara sauce, all sprinkled with top-of-the-line Parmigiano-Reggiano, is a recipe for pizza perfection. That is one good looking pie; steam rising off the hot bubbles of mozzarella and chunks of tomato and garlic.


Terms of the “best” title and a delicious description after the break.
