DAY 12: October 12th
LOCATION: Maffei's Restaurant (688 6th ave at 22nd St, NYC)
GUEST(S): Dave McKeel, Dave Lombard, Andrew Butterworth, Kevin Hines
ORDER: 1 slice of cheese
PIZZA REPORT: "Best Pizza in Town" is what the sign in the window said. I admit it was pretty good, but it's tough to deliver on claims that bold. Afterall, I am assuming they mean the "town" of New York City. Considering the expectations I had, this pizza ranked up there pretty well. The pizza is conventional oven Neopolitan style with seemingly fresh ingredients and tasty tomato sauce, but the ambience left a lot to be desired. In the pizza report I like to separate the location from the actual pizza discussion but it was difficult to isolate the pizza consumption from the strong stench of chlorine gas in the air. I guess halfway through my slice, someone spilled something or just decided to check the levels on the industrial strength cleaning agents in the store's inventory. The guy behind the counter seemed nice enough so it's unlikely the chlorine was mixed into the pizza in the cooking process.
