If sitting at a table in the street and eating a crunchy square slice or a chewy Neapolitan pie is what you seek, head to Philomena’s. This Sunnyside pizza place is known for its dough, which undergoes an intimidating three-day fermentation process. If you want to try it for yourself, there are three small tables surrounded by a plant-filled patio barricade right in front of the shop, and you can use them from 4 to 9pm daily.
