NY pizza terminology question

Fun question. I end up referring to the Lombardi's/Lucali's/John's/Nick's/Grimaldi's types as "New York–Neapolitan" or "Neapolitan–American," since they sort of build off their Neapolitan forbears but in a bigger, crisper American way.

The other stuff you're talking about, regular by-the-slice stuff from, say, any corner slice joint, I just refer to as "New York–style."

Yeah, I suppose "New York–style" could refer also to the coal-oven "New York–Neapolitan"/"Neapolitan-American" ones, too, since they're made/made their appearance in NYC, but I would hazard a guess that most folks outside NYC are not familiar with the coal-oven type places and think of a Ray's-type slice when they think of "New York pizza."

Hope that doesn't muddy things too much.

I think Sam's is great. And Lucali. But again, if you're complaining about sit-down, meal-type places, these are also sit-down, full-service pizzerias.

If you're lucky, you'll get in and out of Di Fara in a jiffy. If he's got a slice pie just up and everyone else is waiting for bespoke pies. In reality, you're probably in for as much of a wait at Di Fara as at a sit-down, full-meal type place.

Honestly, I've been in and out of Motorino in less time than it's taken me to even place an order at Di Fara. No kidding.

Pizza place around Penn Station

NY Pizza Suprema. It's on Eighth Avenue and 30th or thereabouts. The regular pie and the "upside down" pie (square with sauce on top of cheese) are standouts.

Di Fara disappointment

You should try the artichoke slice or ... WHOLE PIE. Heaven on earth.
