Everything JuniperBleu stated - and add on a REAL Italian bakery - not a Korean bakery, not a Swiss bakery - not a snooty, fancy bakery - but a REAL Italian bakery!

Anyone from NYC go to Juniors? I went to the original one in Brooklyn, and that place is great. The pastrami sandwich was about 2 feet high.

I have never had N.Y. pizza. One of these days I am going to have to try it when I am visitng there again. Though my home town (Davenport, IA) is hardly known for pizza, there is a small locally owned chain of pizza places makes the best pizza I have ever had. Harris pizza makes the tastiest and greasiest stuff ever made. You know the heavy wax paper sleeves used to carry pizza out of a restaruant (instead of cardboard boxes)? Harris pizza was (and is) so greasy that within two or three minutes the paper was drenched in grease and would begin to soak through the paper. Man, that stuff was good. I can taste it now...and feel my arteries clog up.
