Why locals recommend it
An absolute classic expression of New York City-style pizza. The old-school, rough-hewn, cash-only Village classic has wooden booths that are etched with decades of graffiti. Go with a party of four and you’ll definitely get a booth—as opposed to a table—and you can slide the little ones right in to make it easier to keep an eye on them. They serve only pies. That’s it. I love the plain because of the delish way the hot coal oven randomly chars the bottom, and all I need is sauce and cheese. My boys love the fresh Italian sausage.

John's opened it's doors in 1929 and is known to be one of the four original pizzerias in NYC. The pizzas are still made the same way with the same ingredients - cheese going on first before adding sauce on top before going into a coal-fired oven. Go wild loading your pizza with all the ingredients…

Rated top pizza in NYC by barstool sports. If you don't know barstool sports, they've basically tried every pizza in every city.

Café
“A nice, moderately priced place to eat (for the area). A breakfast of an omelette and coffee will still run around $18 with tip. But the atmosphere is relaxed and during the summer you can sit at one of the sidewalk tables that is on a nice quiet street rather than on 6th or 7th avenue where one would be inhaling car fumes. And there is a jazz/cabaret music scene there on the weekends. ”

“The original “New York Style” slice. It’s a very good, accurate portrayal of New York style pizza. Get the “regular slice,” also called “plain.” Local tip - in NYC, we don’t call regular slices “cheese pizza.” ”
