Johns has really gone into the shitter. Last time I was there, they were using that industrial cheap pepperoni that you get at the Sbaro's of the world and also cheap mozz. Previously, the mozz was fresh and the pepperoni was the very small kind that curls up.

I like South Brooklyn Pizza as a more convenient alternative to Di Fara. Same general concept.

Grimaldi's BK is a cut above any Manhattan place because they have the blazing hot oven that does pizzas in like 3 minutes.

Sam's on Court Street(Brooklyn) does brick oven pizza that is better than Grimaldi's. I live walking distance to both. Grimaldi's gets the gas face vs Sam's.

Re Luger's.....I hope you made some reservations....If not, make em now!

Im heading to nyc w. a work group of 12 for inspiration travel. Any suggestions for a big dinner thats "iconic" (managers request) 150$ a head give or take.

Any mid range destination spots in LES that can handle a 12 top that we have to hit? Bars?

We're staying in LES at thompson.

A thousand prayers for your suggestions.

Haha, this may be the the case. I haven't really hung around the W Village much over the last 3 years and actually can't recall having a slice there in at LEAST that long. Too bad.

I forgot about South Brooklyn Pizza. Do you mean the Manhattan location? I went there once and it was divine. I also had a pie from the Carroll Gardens location which was simply good.

I've only been to the one on 2nd ave and the now closed location on Bleeker. Both were good enough for me to not want to trek out to Midwood.

No slices@ John's! (I think the sign even says it)

Which of these suggested pizza places has less wait time? I don't think we want to spend an hour or two in line, no matter how good the pizza is.

For two people, the wait is pretty tolerable at peak hours on the weekend at Lombardi's or Grimaldi's, close to non-existent in the middle of a weekday for an early or late lunch. I haven't been to either in a long time (I don't like Lombardi's, Grimaldi's is solid though), but have been to Motorino, Co., Forcella, and some of the other Neapolitan places numerous times at off hours (3 PM lunch for example) and have never waited. I have waited 10, 20 minutes at the worst during dinner hours for two.

Any good non-tourist traps around Times Square? Need to have a quick dinner there Friday night.

Queen of Sheba has ok Ethiopian food. There's a shake shack but is a tourist trap. There's a few Cuban latin places. Schnippers(?) is decent. Really not much in time square. Schnippers is your best bet for a quick meal.

I will admit I haven't explored that much. But I'm near port authority a lot and those are pretty much where I go.
