just went into an internet hole learning about the whole prince street pizza drama from earlier in the year. didnt know about any of this til today but apparently frank baladi who made all the pizza left in like january to work at "made in new york pizza" in UWS. prince street's owner frank morano then said they were gonna pursue legal action for non-compete and stealing their recipe or something. then in march frank badali's son mario opened his own place called "village square pizza" on ave a and frank now works there. i ran into village square truck today and frank was manning it and kinda filled me in on all this and then made me research more. village square's slice tastes just like the prince street slice, idk about made in ny's slice though. i used to go a lot to prince street when it first opened and badali was always the guy in there making the pizza and he's always been super nice and its good to know that if i want that prince street square i can just go someplace else with no big ass line and without a bunch of tourists and pizza tours mucking it up. prince street's owner and his son always came across as dicks anyways and baladi always seemed like the talent behind the pizza's recipe.

i dont think ive had prince street pizza in 20 years. every time i find myself near there, the line is ridiculous. i also stopped going to joe's for similar reasons.

mama's too in the UWS has a similar square no? i thought that was good but not great when i tried it. line was only 3-4 deep at that point.

am i the only person who still reps for artichoke's square? they keep raising the price but for convenience and taste, its hard to beat.

i wanna open up the pizza talk a bit

this is totally biased because it is my local joint, but while i can get the initial criticism over paulie gee's slice shop when it opened, I think it has turned in to straight up the best neighborhood slice joint in the city and one of the best in general by the slice. the freddie prinze plain, however, is hands down the best slice they have though.

re: artichoke's

i had never had artichoke's pizza ever before a month ago when i blindly ordered their namesake pie for delivery, which was one of the fucking grossest pizzas i've ever ordered in my life. i ordered a whole pie of that shit, there is no universe where it is ok to put that much cream on a pizza.

love Paulie gees slice (although they can be a little sloppy sometimes)

Artichokes is total trash but it’s a good sponge for people I don’t want to be around me

Haven’t been to prince but I’m interested in village square now

Pretty much my favorite slices (square) are all in the city: corner slice at Gotham west, the bianca pomodoro at Sullivan street bakery, superiority burgers “focaccia” on Fridays at 5pm or anything at bread and salt in fucking jersey city

Anybody else been to bread and salt? It was my favorite restaurant this year. Everything was exactly what I wanted to eat. It’s in a genre I call grad student luxury. Cheap well-sourced ingredients perfectly executed with enough pretension or fealty to their premise to make it fairly principled and meaningful to the people who make it.

good Instagram too: https://instagram.com/breadandsaltbakery

Cant go wrong with either New world shopping mall, Corner 28, or Golden Shopping Mall — i have specific recs for each but if you’re more interested in sitting down and getting table service try out any of these:

- Henan Feng Wei
- Hot space (great whole fish sizzling chili oil trays, good for sharing)
- Shanghai You garden
- Dunhuang Lanzhou Beef Noodle
- Dumpling galaxy (there are 2 locations, one smaller one in Golden mall, another more expensive but comfier and more sit down-ey down the street at Main and Franklin)
- Kabul kabob house (not chinese but some of the best afghani skewers ive found outside of deeper flushing/closest to 7 train)

If you want to get weird but stay in the area i suggest fucking with the milk tea/cheese foam hot pot at Xiang hot pot (top floor of new world shopping mall) or do a bang bang with any of the above and get a dessert tea/Juice at C Fruit Life and supplementing with the Durian pizza :P

If you are looking for slightly more upscale you could always try getting served chongqing chicken off a shovel at szechuan mountain house (do know there is a location on st marks in manhattan though!)

my new city-wide fav for soup dumplings is memories of shanghai. it's in a mostly residential area, and a bit out of the way in forest hills but it's truly special. did a soup dumpling bike tour with some friends this summer, and nothing else was close:

I'm not sold on Paulie Gee's slice shop. I've been 3 times and haven't been impressed. Best pizza has lost its luster. I think they cheapend the ingredients or something.

Paulie gees slice shop has the dumbest operational efficiency/setup ever. Like you can be the 4th person in line and it still takes almost 20 mins. It really pisses me off dunno why :twisted:

I'm an unabashed slice shop supporter, it was my go to late night snack when I lived over there and was getting back from work

I know it's meant to be nostalgic as all hell too but I really like the vibe in the back/bar area too when it's not too busy
