Yeah, just seeing the word makes us feel feelings too. We had a reader request yesterday to add a video about pizza to our growing list of local food videos we've been giving to you on weekends. And of course we knew the perfect one.
The name here is bandied about any time someone asks about the best pizza in New York (this is a frequent conversation, and EVERYONE has an opinion, and it's ALWAYS an agressive one).
Here's what DiFara has going for it: this guy's been making every single pizza his restaurant puts out. That's right. EVERY pizza. Since he was 26.
And now for a sad admission: we've never been. I know. I know. It's certainly something we feel bad about. And among the list of best pizzas in NYC, the only place we haven't tried.
We're people that make extra time on east coast road trips to pop in for a Frank Pepe's pie, so it's shocking to us as well. Even with the increasingly frequent health department closures. Perhaps watching this video will drive us to finally head out there and deal with the fucking line and the hour or two wait for a perfect (and maybe slightly unsanitary?) pie.
Or we might just go to Totonno's again...
