** Update to the price confusion in the comments. $1 slices are a reality!
I was just over on 5th and 60th, but I guess I looked right when I should have looked left. You'd think, with all the restaurants opening up, that the economy was doing better than it feels like it's doing. Let's give the new Sliceria Pizzeria a look-see, shall we?
From the photos in the Serious Eats article and the website, this place looks like it should be on 8th Avenue next to Tbaar or Quickly bubble tea chains. But it's not. In fact, according to the website, it's a family-run pizza place that is bring back "the classic slice" the way it should be: "Simple, Fast, Fun & Delicious." You can order on-line (that's the simple and fast part, perhaps?), and they deliver. In the article from Serious Eats, the prices differ from the menu on-line. Maybe the promised $1 slices and $8 pies were promotional for the grand opening. (They are $2/2.25 and $12 on the menu.) Still, the baked ziti is very reasonable, and they have round and square slices. Maybe this will do away with the need to trek out to L&B for a true square.
They have something they have that I've never seen in a pizzeria before: the dessert pizza. Nutella and powdered sugar on a 12 inch pie? Anyone (or two) out there want to split one of those?
