When we heard that Joe & Pat’s - one of our top 20 pizza places - had opened their first-ever Manhattan spot, we had two immediate thoughts, in this order: 1) We want vodka pizza and 2) Will it live up to the original? Good news: the pies here are as delicious and crackery-thin as they are at the original, and now, if you’re not a Staten Island resident, you won’t have to take a ferry to try some of the best pizza in the city. We especially like the vodka pie with cheese that mixes into the sauce like a tie-dye shirt, but you could conceivably eat non-pizza dishes here too, like chicken parm and baked clams. The space itself also feels a lot like the original, with walls covered in family photos and Italian Renaissance murals. Our only issue is that the prices are noticeably higher here than on Staten Island - although Manhattan tends to have that effect on things.

A legendary Staten Island pizza place has opened in Greenwich Village, and the pies are as good as they have been for 100 years. Get the clam pizza.

Legendary thin crust pizza that you should make the trip to Coney Island for.

The original Patsy’s in East Harlem makes excellent pizza for a sit-down meal or a slice at the counter.
