Pizza and beer, only better. Due to popular demand for their high quality wood-fired brick oven pizzas and vast repertoire of brews, Toby's Public House opened a Manhattan outpost just north of Little Italy. With a similar menu in both cost and content, high quality ingredients and creative topping combinations are guaranteed. Expect a larger than Naples, smaller than New York style pie with copious amounts of cheese melted upon a sea of rich tomato sauce and held up by a thin, crisp and slightly charred crust. The primary difference between the two locations is the oven. At such hot temperatures, even undivided attention and constant manipulation cannot assure an even bake. As evidenced by the irregular charring on several of the pies, the hot spots are still being identified in the red brick double-opening pentagonal oven in the new Manhattan location. If the original location is any indicator, with time, the NoLIta Toby's Public House will be churning out some of the best crisp thin crusted wood-fired signature pizzas in the city. Meet you at their happy hour where they have drink discounts and complimentary pizza. Yes, free pizza.
