B Side is your best bet for brick-oven pizza in Hell’s Kitchen. The pies here taste like whoever’s making them cares more about bread than finding somebody to love. There are almost exclusively bar seats inside of this dimly-lit restaurant on W 51st Street, but you can usually walk right in and get a spot. We especially like the carbonara pie and the Roberta’s ripoff - topped with enough soppressata to feed a family of four, lots of chili oil, and honey drizzle.

Kung Fu Little Steamed Buns Ramen
Yes, that's the real name of this restaurant, which is impressive. The ramen? Not so impressive. But there are other things to love at this noodle spot in Hell's Kitchen.

Olio Pizza e Piu
Olio Pizza e Piu managed to get one of the worst Infatuation ratings ever. Each pizza we ordered was a mess of rubbery cheese and crust – heavy, sloppy and unappetizing.

The only thing that is keeping Rubriosa from being one of NYC’s classic Italian restaurants is time. Let’s eat vodka sauce pizza while we wait.
Emily not only has some of the best pizza in the city, it’s also got one of the best burgers. That means you should probably get there soon.
