Danny Boy’s Famous Original


Danny Boy’s is a New York-style pizza spot on the ground floor of a giant Downtown skyscraper filled with busy-looking people in suits. If you don’t work in the building, parking in the area can be brutal—so be sure to follow the guidelines on their website, so you don't get strapped with a $15 valet charge like we have. Once there though, you’ll be treated to some respectable New York-style slices. Our favorite is the meatball with creamy ricotta—complemented by a thin, crisp-but-foldable crust. They also do a thicker Sicilian-style pizza, a slice topped with Greek salad, and some hero sandwiches, plus a few gluten-free options. This probably isn’t a pizza place to plan a special trip around, but if you’re near the Financial District and in need of a quick lunch, Danny Boy’s is a good option.
