      It's all relative but any list that doesn't have DiFara on it is suspect. If the article was about the experience I'd agree as I won't wait in any line for pizza, but if you get a hold of a slice it's damn good. Of the new ones Most of the old school places have been around for awhile so it's not the rent. Emily's is walking distance from me and pretty good. There are also several on this list that i feel are as good or better and I hope selfishly that they stay off the radar.

          I'm very fond of Motorino and around the corner from them is Luzzo's. Company was OK - pretty overpriced. John's on Bleecker St always gave you a decent pie. For a typical NY slice, Joe's Pizza at the corner of Carmine and Bleecker is legendary. My favorite in the NYC area is Benny Tudino's in Hoboken.

            My my favorite in my area is Saraghina. They serve a thin crust style that has the right mix of chewy to crisp for the crust and they also have good accompanying dishes. Another place is Il Porto. Pretty good pies all around with their square being my favorite. Granny's is also good, surprised it didn't make the list as it's fairly popular.

              okay, this was from 2103 but the BEST pizza in America is not in NY, but Cali...according to Zagat (I know, who cares). If it makes you guys feel any better, the founder is an expat New Yorker...

                Usually California can't make any food without ruining it with goat cheese and some greens that look like you should be spraying Round Up on them instead of eating them. At least that pizza looks good.

                  CPK is dying on the vine...their BBQ chicken pizza which put them on the map was blatant plagiarisim of Wolfgang's invention at Spago. after a corporate wide redo of their entire chain it aparantky isnt enough, they're now trying to copy Cheescake Factory rolling out pasta and more non-pizza offerings

                  Agreed, know one of the nearby CPKs on 60th St. closed about a year ago and not sure what is up with the others. Funny thing, first time I ever went to a CPK was while on vacation in Santa Barbara back in the early '90s. Couldn't wait for CPK to move East but they've gone downhill over the years.

                When I lived down that way, I liked St. Marks Pizza. Not even sure if it exists anymore ?

                  you're referring to micro greens and to be honest I haven't seen a blatant over-use of goat cheese in a long while except for the last French joint I ate at. IMO, Californian's are more egalitarian in the way they support restaurants and where they choose to nosh, everybody is doing fusion of one sort or another (esp. Asian). sometimes I just want simple and unadulterated like grandma's chicken pot pie, good luck finding that out here

                    California = foo foo food. Grandma's chicken pot pie made in California would probably be unrecognizable for the average person who lives outside of California. The chicken would probably be some free range chicken that was hand fed from birth and sung to as it was killed and the pot pie would be made with some strange vegetables you never heard of that came from some organic farm.

                      There is nothing like New York and Philadelphia pizza. Most of the stuff here in No CA isn't even close. However there are a couple of bright spots.

                      For Chicago style deep dish, this is the best.

                      This is a new place downtown near me and it's the best pizza I've had in CA.

                        Who ever thought it was a good idea to make pizza out of pie dough? That's what Chicago pizza always reminds me of.

                          No it's not pie dough. It's crispy crust with a layer of cheese, a layer of filling, another layer of cheese topped with tomatoes. A few years ago it was the top rated Zagat restaurant in the Bay Area.

                            we have two places within 10 miles that are about as New York as you can get. From the cool Brick ovens to actual real living New Yorkers running the pie shops whom had retired from making pies in New York/Brooklyn only to come here and open another business while their kids run the shops in New York. . Love New York pies. Chicago pizza, fuhgeddaboudit

                            I remember there was a nationwide large chain of Chicago style pizza places in the 80's. I tried that Chicago pizza and didn't like it.
