Day 19, 2013: Capizzi (Hell's Kitchen, NYC)

DAY 19: OCTOBER 19th, 2013

LOCATION: Capizzi (547 9th Ave, Hell's Kitchen, NYC)

ORDER: half of Margherita with hot sausage

GUEST(S): Kitzi Taylor

Port Authority to Port Authenticity!  Nestled beneath the Port Authority bus terminal, amidst several dollar slice pizzerias sits Capizzi, one of the most authentic Italian style pizzerias in Manhattan.  Cooked in an Italian wood-fired brick oven overseen by employees speaking Italian, with Italian tomatoes, and imported Italian cheese, the pizzas might actually think they're in Italy.  The fact the crust it a bit more well done and cut into slices are the only indicators the pie isn't being cooked in the city in Sicily by the same name. Capizzi is also a wine bar so that, combined with the trendy decor, late hours, and amazing pizza makes it a great place to take a date.   I will be back.



1. Kitzi Taylor, my mom, just flew in for an annual visit to NYC.  She is likely the main reason I love pizza and she can expect to eat a lot of it while she's here.
2. Saw Trudy Carmichael's New York Musical Improv Festival (NYMIF) Musical Mixer tonight.  Here's a still from it.  The show features my wife, Robin Rothman along with a whole slew of musical improvisers that welcome anyone and everyone up on the stage for some free fun on Tuesday nights at the Magnet Theater.
