If you ever need Italian bread and pastries in South Philly—you do, you will—go to New York Bakery. The best thing here is the tomato pie, which gets brushed with EVOO, so there’s a nice, oil-slick crunch to each border. It’s one of the saucier tomato pies in Philly. But the thick sauce gets baked just enough to stay in place—you could go dancing with it and not make a mess. New York Bakery also sells things like kaiser rolls, tea biscuits, croissants, and even bread crumbs. There are no seats inside, so it's a complete to-go operation, which is fine since you'll want some alone time with your slice.
