Arguments about the best pizza in New York have seemingly always existed, and conversations about the very best kosher pizza in New York are no less intense. As an almost universally acknowledged truth, Abaita has been at the top of that list since it first opened back in 2018. Co-owners and chefs David Egidio Donagrandiad and Sruli Subar clearly know what they’re doing - the latter born and raised in the North of Italy, honing his skills in Miami, Lake Como, San Francisco, and beyond. The modern and intimate design of the restaurant is a bit at odds with what a lot of strictly kosher diners are used to, which adds bonus points to the whole experience. Start off with the classic pizza margherita - probably the best thing on the menu - and then try a few of the pastas. The classic spaghetti always delivers, as does the rigatoni with tomato confit, Calabrian chili, and parmigiano.
