Gruppo is a thin-crust pizza spot on Avenue B with an atmosphere somewhere between Two Boots and Nicoletta, meaning there’s bar seating and some affordable wine options, but you could also walk in with a group after a pick-up basketball game across the street in Tompkins Square Park. You can choose your own toppings or go with any of the 15 house varieties, which come in personal and shareable sizes. A personal pie is pretty small, so get a small plate like the prosciutto crostini as well.
