Default Best Pizza joint in NYC (Midtown)?

A fellow coworker and I need to run up to NYC on Monday. This guy has spent most of his life San Diego and has no idea what good pizza is. Just looking for any favorites in Midtown

Thanks, but not really looking for a franchise. Any Mom & Pop places?

I found better mom and pop pizza's OUTSIDE of midtown. Although, that doesn't mean there aren't any. I'm sure there is, but pizza has turned "chic" and its hard finding a good, oil drippin', bendable crust, old fashioned pizza. I don't know about you, but I cringe every time I see a "New York Style" pizza with a crust that you can't bend in half and eat, it breaks! That ain't NY pizza. It's freakin Delgiorno..

Sorry, I didn't answer your question, just an excuse for me to get on my soapbox about pizza!

John's - 44th/8th and 64th/1st http://www.johnspizzerianyc.com/index2.htm

Patsy's come in third - http://www.patsyspizzeriany.com/

And if you want one of the best basic slices of sausage pie in the world go to Mimma's on 84th/2nd.

If venturing out of Manhattan - Grimaldi's in brooklyn is the best in the WORLD hands down....they are actually #1 rated in Zagat's http://www.grimaldis.com/

Enjoy and tell me what you choose and how you liked it.

It's not midtown, but Lombardis on Spring and Mott
is very good. It's been there a long time, brick oven, coal, the real deal.
It is not some California Pizza Kitchen with powdered sauce and frozen dough.

It is a little north of Little Italy

Eb1326 mentioned Grimaldis. Been there, and that is very good also.

Back a ways ago, 1976/77, we went to a Chicago style pizza place call Goldbergs. It wasn't very pretty, but they treated customers like kings, gave us a half glass of wine while we were waiting to be seated. Also had really good pizza, including one called SMOG, sausage, mushroom, onions and green peppers. Was very good pizza. However, that being more than 20 years ago, they may not be in existence.

I little bit uptown, but Sal and Carmines on 104th and Broadway. The two brothers Sal and Carmine has been making Manhattan's best pizza for over 3 decades. They used to have lines longer than the theater that was next to them every weekend nights. They are abit older now and the pizza is a bit saltier, but I still walk over a mile for it when I want a slice.
