Joe’s Pizza: Old School (Famous) New York Pie

Do you remember this insight from Santa about where to eat pizza in New York?

Unfortunately that Ray’s is gone…queue Eric Clapton’s “Tears In Heaven,” right? Well, hold your hankie.

We learned about Joe’s Pizza in Greenwich Village…it came with promise, so we set off to try it out.

First, you should know that Joe’s is famous in it’s own right. Do you remember that scene in Spiderman where Peter Parker had to deliver a pile of pizzas? That joint? Joe’s!

The wall is lined with photos of Joe and his crew smiling with the likes of Steven Tyler, Matthew Mcconaughey, Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway and tons more. Obviously Spiderman is spilling secrets to his Hollywood friends.

The line out the door went pretty fast. Pick from plain, fresh mozzarella, or pepperoni….by the slice or as a full pie. Slices are good…but always, ALWAYS get the pie.

Most people seem to get their order to go, probably because there is only one single table in the center and a few standing tables around the side. You’re only a few blocks from Washington Square Park, which makes a great place to picnic if you can wait to dig in.

It’s cash-only here, but there is an ATM right outside the front door.

And the pizza? Oh – it’s darn close to perfect!
