Day 8, 2012: Siena Pizza (Midtown, NYC)

DAY 8: OCTOBER 8th, 2012

LOCATION: Siena Pizza (Midtown, NYC)

ORDER: 2 slice of cheese

GUEST: Aina Rapoza, Oli Vega, James Robertson

In the shadow of the Port Authority, Siena Pizza offers an affordable New York slice.  Sure the menu marquee is larger than the dining area but there is no need to linger in this no frills grab-and-go establishment.  Just get your substantial size gas powered deck oven backed slice with creamy low moisture mozzarella and evenly distributed subtle tomato sauce, fold it up, and eat it on your way to your destination.  Some may prefer to add the step of tilting it down to drain off some of the excess oil before eating but it is not necessary.  The tilt-and-drain method is preferred over napkin dabbing because touching your slice with a napkin will add some of the flavor of the napkin to the slice and most napkins taste terrible!

1. My pizza guests make up three fifths of an improv comedy group called Mowgli.  They all met at a Drop-In improv comedy class I teach weekly at the Magnet Theater called the Saturday Drop-In.
2. We left rather abruptly when a drunk and disorderly man came into the store and suddenly began yelling at the nice man behind the counter.
