how not to order NYC pizza

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« No one person or one business can claim he she or it defined New York Pizza, but yet it happened. Crispy thin crust that breaks or bends so it can be eaten folded. Visiting politicians get an classic NYC mockery for eating it wrong. Joe’s Pizza is now on Times Square and they claim with modest reason to support it, that Joe’s Pizza shaped New York style pizza. Yesterday’s lunch at Joe’s Times Square put me in a long line of tourists starting outside. New Yorquiños are obligated to complain about long lines of tourists, and New Yorkquiños also must have an alibi if they wait in such a line. “Margarita” I said to a blank look from the Spanish-speaking man serving slices in the triple-digits per hour, and as I pointed, “that one” he corrected me, “Cabrese”. I recovered silently from the wound of stuffing my ego back to a transportable size thinking this middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel knows how to order a common slice in NYC. Dear kind readers: I surveyed several people including: ONE: an Italian man my age who has yet to live outside Italy TWO: my Italian wife THREE: Adam, a man my age living in the great North American desert near Sky Harbor International FOUR: a Brooklyn man and stranger about my age as we waited to buy coffee this AM. Again: here’s the question: show a picture of the pizza, and ask if it’s called Margarita or Caprese. Sincerely, Tom Doody »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
