Day 25, 2002: La Pizza Fresca (Flatiron, NYC)

DAY 25: October 25th
LOCATION: La Pizza Fresca (20th St bet Broadway and Park Ave S, NYC)
GUEST: Terry Jinn, Will McLaughlin, Andrew Butterworth, Kevin Hines, Jane Borden, Porter Mason, Brian Fountain, Eli Newell, Dannah Feinglass, Paul Scheer
ORDER: 2 slices of La Pizza Fresca
PIZZA REPORT: The pits! This pizza is delicious, however, you must beware that the olives are not pitted. La Pizza Fresca is made in a wood-burning brick oven and topped with fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and olives (with pits). Even if you're not aware of the pits or even if you don't know how to eat a cherry tomato without making a mess you will still enjoy this pizza. The crust is thin, warm, and soft which is ideal when it comes to crust ratings. I was also pleased at the care that was given to properly distribute both the sauce and the cheese uniformly about the pie. Good work, La Pizza Fresca.
  • Terry Jinn (author of ‘My daily beverage’) sat on the other end of the table and was flanked by Porter Mason, Brian Fountain, and Eli Newell. I couldn't hear what they were saying but they looked to be having a good time.
  • Will McLaughlin, Kevin Hines, Andrew Butterworth, and I began discussing Elijah the prophet but digressed into making puns... like finding out that Jane Borden used to go to borden' school when she was younger.
  • Watch Dannah Feinglass and Paul Scheer are going to be on kitty cat television. Watch it and tape it…but keep the paws off. Oops, another pun.
