Lucali is a walk-in-only spot in Carroll Gardens that serves the best pizza in New York City.

This West Village Italian spot is starting to feel just a tad dated - but the food is as good as ever. Try it for a special dinner, and order pasta.

Grandpa’s Brick Oven Pizza is an Inwood slice shop where you should be getting cheese-filled carbs after 10pm.
Bodega Pizza is a great spot to bring a group for personal pies and beer in Washington Heights.
Indian Taj is an all-you-can-eat spot in Jackson Heights that’s open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week.
The Tribeca restaurant is less of the celebrity scene it once was, but still makes very good Italian food.
Zenon Taverna is a Greek-Cypriot restaurant in Astoria where you can get a great, affordable prix-fixe with an excessive amount of (very good) food.
