99 Cent Pizza Taking Over The East Village?

An article last December by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (coverage by EV Grieve) showed that the 10003 zip code had the highest concentration of pizza shops in New York with 33.  Needless to say, we’re pretty spoiled for choice when it comes to pizza with excellent shops like Sal’s, Two Boots, Gruppo […]

The Meatball Factory (Closed)

Meatballs seem to be ‘trending’ right now, so when I got an invite from McKenzie of MMMGuide to sample some of the food at The Meatball Factory, she didn’t have to ask me twice.  The ‘Factory’  opened about 3 months ago & serves salad, pizzas, fettuccine & obviously meatballs.

Singa’s Shutters

Singa’s Famous Pizza (94 Avenue C @ 6th Street review here) that opened to little fanfare just over a year ago has shuttered & is closed for renovations.  The pizza there wasn’t anything to write home about, the service was snail-slow & with Gruppo, Two Boots & even Papa John’s around, I really saw no […]

Food Parc

Way out of my normal stomping grounds & with possibly the shakiest camera in existence, I headed up to Food Parc (851 Avenue of the Americas at West 30th Street) for some late night food & drinks.  I had never been there before or even heard of it.  I was pleasantly surprised  to find a […]

Stromboli Pizza Addition

Much beloved Stromboli Pizza’s (83 St. Marks Place @ 1st Avenue) hideous shitbox addition is apparently open for business.  I don’t mind the pizza there, but you couldn’t pay me to sit in that plywood tinderbox… Further pictures & coverage via Evgrieve. Update (4/11/10); The addition looks a bit less shitty now with signage & coverings.  I […]

Singa’s Famous Pizza (Closed)

Regular readers of my blog (yes, both of you…) will know that I’ve been watching the Singas space (94 Avenue C @ 6th Street) quite closely. Well, finally they’ve opened! I stopped by Singas today (formerly at 2nd Avenue) to try the pie out. Let me start by letting you know that this place is […]
