Oldest pizzeria in New York dating back to 1905
You can easily add pizza as an institution to New York on top of its hot dogs, burgers and baseball. In my packed timetable I had to start somewhere for trying a pizza and you can’t go too far wrong if you start at the beginning and the oldest one. Lombardi’s is advertised as the very first, Pizzaria in America starting in 1905 and is now tucked away in the area known as Little Italy (also very good to get to this area from one of my favourite films by Luc Beson, called Leon). I created my own pizza using pepperoni, spicy sausage and mozerella as the main (and favourite) ingredients for this pizza and it was always going to be steep at $44 for where I was. Was it the best pizza I’ve ever had? No, I don’t think so, but the softened milk mozzarella and dough quality certainly made it a good one.
