This place slings one of the best traditional pizza pie’s in the world.
The dough and crust bake up to be simultaneously puffy yet thin and crisp, the sauce is slightly sweet but still deeply savory, and the cheese is top quality, perfectly melted and gorgeously bubbled.
Simplicity is the key when you have such high quality ingredients. Sure, you can get other toppings if you want. But don’t fucking bring that bullshit to my table.
I just want the regular shit, completely un-fucked-with, please…
God damn that’s good pizza. It is well worth the trip out to Coney for this. In fact, I recommend eating a pie there and then ordering one to go if you don’t live nearby, because this stuff holds up great as leftovers, even cold from the fridge.
Coney Island has come a long way since the bad old days of The Warriors.
Even just nine or ten years ago it was a much seedier place than it is today. Coney is unique in the NY Cityscape. Historically it has been a place for both family fun in the sun, as well as a place where alternative, non-traditional people can express themselves freely.
Some old classics remain as far as the food scene goes, like Grimaldi’s and Totonno’s for some of the best pizza that NYC has to offer, Nathan’s for good old fashioned hot dogs (Happy 100th Birthday), or Paul’s Daughter (the name has changed over the years) for fresh seafood and funnel cakes.
