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.

Chef’s Table At Brooklyn Fare
Chef’s Table At Brooklyn Fare in Hell’s Kitchen serves a tasting menu that’s unlike anything else you’ll eat in NYC.
North River Lobster Co.
The food at North River Lobster Co. is regrettably mediocre. Then again, we never expected more from a floating restaurant in the middle of Midtown fart-tastic touristville.
The Meatball Shop
Like the others, the Hell’s Kitchen location of The Meatball Shop is good for a very casual and reliable meal.

Scarr’s is a little, retro pizza place on the Lower East Side with some pretty average pizza and a pretty lively scene.

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.
