“Pizza for the A-List and the Landlady Upstairs” - @newyorktimes.city Our fourth stop on #nycpizzaquest was the famous side street pie joint, “Lucali’s.” Trying to get a pie here was an all afternoon ordeal. If you have the patience - listen up. We got to the closed restaurant at 3:00 p.m. where a line was already forming. We were told “Wait here, they start seating around 5:00 pm.” At 5:15 pm after a rip roaring two hours of “I spy” the gates of heaven finally opened...but we were too far back in line to make the first sitting. “Come back at 6:00 pm, CASH ONLY, BYOB (6 small cans of beer or one bottle of wine), ONLY THE TOPPINGS ON THE BOARD, ONE HOUR TO EAT.” We shuffled away wide eyed to run to the nearest liquor store.
6:00 pm finally came and our stomachs were ready for the mysterious pie that has locals and travellers from as far as New Zealand standing in line for 3 hours.
#REVIEW : to be honest it was all a blur as we watched pies get tossed into the air and then the oven. I remember giving the chefs multiple thumbs up and also the wine going straight to my head.
How can we score this place shrouded in so much mystery? We’ll try:
Good cheese blend, salty and came straight out of the oven so it was hot AF. Countering the temperature are the fresh basil leaves 🌿 sprinkled on top before serving. We chose hot peppers as a topping and they were flavourful without overpowering the pie as a whole. The owner puts panko on the underside of the crust to keep the dough from sticking 💡 Sauce was fresh and not too sweet.
Sauce not too sweet. The crust was a bit too crispy and thin but if you like a well done pie this one’s for you.
Is that all? 🍕= 9/10
