We understand if you’re skeptical about this Hell’s Kitchen slice spot opened by people behind a ramen restaurant on the LES. But they pull it off. This vendor in Gotham West Market serves the best slices in Midtown. The crust is what makes these square slices special, and the crunchy, airy squares are so light that you can eat three of them and still stay awake during your boss’s speech on boosting morale. The topping options are pretty straightforward here, and our favorites are the ones that let the crust shine, like the one that’s just topped with sweet tomatoes, oregano, and grated cheese.

All observations about the clientele aside, Nobu 57 is still a pretty damn good meal. It’s hard not to love those classic dishes, as long as you can swallow the hefty price tag.
