The New York Staple: Pizza!
One cannot visit New York City without eating its famous tomato and cheese pies. This Greek invention slowly modified by Neapolitans into tomato and cheese pies was brought to New York in 1897 by Italian immigrant Gennaro Lombardi. His pies quickly became a commodity and an on-the-go food for workers.
However, Famous Joe’s Pizza has become the essential pizza for New Yorkers and tourists, defining the true street pizza. Joe’s customers describe its pizza with a thin and chewy crust, thin but not too flexible, with just enough cheese and sauce, and having an ideal symmetry. Ask Ben Affleck what he thinks about Joe’s, and undeniably he will rate Joe’s pizza as his favorite in the Big Apple. This straight-out-of-the-coal-fired, brick oven pizza is definitely the best pizza in the city, prepared daily and with fresh ingredients creating a one-of-a-kind yummy tomato and cheese pie.
