After trying Upside’s cheese slice from their new Soho location that’s made with sourdough, we might be ready to say goodbye to Joe’s as our de facto NYC slice recommendation. The dough from Upside is noticeably tangy, the cheese stays put, and there are patches of bubbly caramelized cheese that make us thankful for fire. The square slices shouldn’t be missed, especially their cheese-less Sicilian that’s covered in thin slices of garlic, crisped up basil leaves, and perfectly seasoned tomato sauce that’s zesty and not too sweet.
