The pizza at PQR is rectangular, and it’s covered with things like broccoli rabe, burrata, sausage, and pumpkin. It’s all just a little bit fancy and also very good, and the crust is both crispy and fluffy, and you’ll want to eat it plain. PQR is mostly a takeout slice place, however, so you probably shouldn’t plan a date here - although if you want to eat a slice by yourself, you can sit on a stool up front or at one of the tables in the back. Or just pick up and some pizza and eat it at home. And feel free to get the slice with pumpkin on top. It’s roughly six times better it sounds.

Located on the west side of Soho, Cafe Altro Paradiso is a pleasant restaurant in which to drink some wine and eat some appetizers.
An absolute classic. It hardly gets better than L’Artusi, and that’s been the case for a long time.
