Day 17, 2018: Williamsburg Pizza LES (LES, NYC)



DAY 17: OCTOBER 17th, 2018

LOCATION: Williamsburg Pizza LES (277 Broome St, New York, NY 10002)

GUEST(S): Sean Manning, Glenn Mobley, Patrick

ORDER: 2 slices of Grandma (Basil, Pecorino, Parmigiano Reggiano, Olive Oil, Garlic, Fresh Mozzarella and Tomato Sauce), 1 bite of Paesano (Mushrooms, Italian Sausage, Roasted Red Peppers, Homemade Fresh Mozzarella and Tomato Sauce), 1 bite of Tartufo (Fresh Mozzarella, Mixed Wild Mushrooms, Rosemary and White Truffle Oil)

Williamsburg, Manhattan? Yup.  The tough-to-Google generic name, "Williamsburg Pizza," just got tougher by opening up an outpost in Manhattan's Lower East Side.  But, just like the original, their pizza puts them on the map wherever they are. Also taking after the Brooklyn locale, Williamsburg Pizza LES focuses on ingredients and technique over space and access to public facilities. These resources were better utilized in training talented pizza makers to make top tier New York style pizza with high quality toppings. The pecorino-parmigiano and creamy homemade fresh mozzarella cheese blend with the zesty garlic, imported olive oil, crushed tomato sauce and freshly chopped basil. All of these are available in the signature twice-baked gas oven powered Grandma pie. This Sicilian style square is paradoxically light yet sturdy, firm yet chewy, and thin yet filling. Williamsburg Pizza LES has successfully replicated the marvel of nature created at the original. Although these pies travel well, take a hint from the word "Fresh!" printed on every box and order a fresh pie.
