Slice in the Heights. Thanks to Uncle Tony’s, residents of Hamilton Heights and students at City College don’t have to wander far to find a good slice. Finding a seat in the cozy dining area is a different story. Uncle Tony’s is designed as a grab-and-go New York Street slice joint. If you have time to dine (or need to use the bathroom) go next door to the wood-fired sit down Italian restaurant called Fumo. Both have the same owners and churn out quality pizza on opposite ends of the ambiance spectrum. Uncle Tony’s offers patrons a number of signature by-the-slice gas-powered oven options as well as great renditions of quintessential New York street slices. I recommend the Sicilian square. Its thick-yet-chewy crust is proofed 48 hours before being topped with organic tomato sauce, extra virgin olive oil and mozzarella cheese. If you love ‘roni cups, ask for a “Bakers” slice for the pepperoni version of the Sicilian. Whatever you choose, you will leave satisfied. If you happen to live in the vicinity, Uncle Tony’s might just be your new favorite local slice joint.
