Depending on where you work, you’ll either find it a joyous coincidence or a confusing inconvenience that the two best pizza spots in Midtown are both located at 54th and 1st. Two doors down from Sofia Pizza Shoppe is Marinara Pizza, which is much bigger and works if you want to dine in. They serve the same square and round pies as at the original location on the Upper East Side, like the thick, doughy Sicilian slice topped with oil-filled spicy pepperoni, and the margarita that’s thin, but sticks out straight as a board when you pick it up.
