LOCATION: Serafina in the Sky - Pod Hotel (400 W 42nd St, New York, NY 10036)

Pie in the sky. The Hell's Kitchen Serafina in the Sky differentiates itself from other Serafinas and just about any pizzeria by being six floors above the street. Located on the upstairs "lobby" of the Pod hotel, Serafina in the Sky offers multiple seating options indoors and at the bar but the pièce de résistance is most assuredly the palatial wraparound terrace in the heart of New York City. From a fifty feet up, even the Port Authority looks beautiful. Since it is located near the theatre district, I recommend stopping by Serafina in the Sky for a drink on the way to a show. If you are ordering food, add a thin-crusted Margherita as an appetizer so everyone can get their piece of the pie. These individual sized pizzas are ultra-thin, not unlike a bar style pie you might get at Star Tavern or the Colony Grill. Provided the toppings do not retain too much moisture, the sturdy underside should support the high quality ingredients upon it. These premium ingredients come at a premium price but the prices aren't nearly as breath-taking as the views. Serafina in the Sky is a great date place and I look forward to returning.

1. Robin Rothman, Kitzi Taylor and I dressed up for halloween. I was Ted Lasso, my mom was a leprechaun and Robin was a slice of pizza.
2. Kitzi, my mom, got in to New York City just in time for the end of Pizza Month 2021. She woke up early with me to go to Williamsburg, Brooklyn for my softball game, then got pizza, and finally went to the Magnet Theater for a birthday and Halloween. After 22 months, she was our first overnight house guest in our "new" apartment.
