Pizza Place
“Sharply dressed diners flock to this hip eatery for its uncomplicated menu items, so popular that the owners opened excellent cocktail and burger bar Essex next door to serve as a waiting room for the crowds. Once in the doors at Delancey, diners partake in some of the city’s ultimate thin-crust wood-fired pizza and lovely salads. Two-day-cured dough is the base for the likes of zesty tomato sauce, spicy salami, and onions, and the Jersey salad is a crunchy treat, followed by the must-eat chocolate chip cookie with gray salt.”
