Joe’s Pizza in the West Village

I can’t say I’m in love with NY style pizza yet (sorry, it’s the Chi town girl in me). But there are some exceptions. I was introduced to Joe’s Pizza recently by a friend who had to horribly make up for the last place he suggested. It’s the same West Village location that is frequented by celebs and also where they shot scenes from Spider-Man 2. Other random trivia: its sister location in LA is where Heidi Klum did her I Get That A Lot spoof for the TV show. I picked up some very lovely ladies, Samira and Mariam, for a little taste test:

FYI, I kinda got cheese all over my teeth in the first bite so I may have made a questionable face BUT the verdict: This is some good NY-style pizza. Fresh, crispy, with a good balance of sauce and cheese. I love their no-frills approach too — just plain cheese or pepperoni, at least at this location. It’s a tiny place, and you might not get a seat since it seems to always be crowded, but that’s what the park just across the street is good for. I’ll be going back for sure…

  4. Haha I love the video! I’m going to have to try this, I’ve always heard great things. Have you been to Vezzo? It’s at 34th and Lex, and I really liked it when I went. It’s very close to Italian pizza, and I’m obviously super picky about that. It’s not like the best pizza ever, but it’s definitely pretty authentic, thin-crust Italian.
