If you want to eat pizza and drink beer in Washington Heights, do it at Bodega Pizza. Before you even enter this neighborhood spot, the yellow exterior and rainbow light bulbs will tell you this place is special. And if you come on a Friday night for Open Mic, the packed house is a sign that you were right. The very good pies are made in a brick oven and come topped with things like black truffle oil and soppressata, which you can enjoy with beer or wine. Just be sure to save room for the Nutella calzone.
