i’m lucky enough to live on the upper west side and close enough to sal & carmine’s pizza (on broadway between 101st and 102nd) to get there in 2 min. flat. this place is from another time and it’s wonderful that it co-exists here amongst new, low lit swank bars that seem more at home in the east eighties.
the only problem? that they’re not open late for a slice when you’re stumbling home after many hours of partying. the pizza is the best i’ve had in manhattan (and i’ve lived here since 1979, yo mama). the ambiance is priceless. the total for your order is rung up on an old-fashioned cash register with big black and white keys covered in pizza dust. this place should have been a sopranos set location.
