Kinchely’s Tavern in Ramsey

The famous Kinchley’s! Around since 1937, it’s been serving some of the best thin-crust pizza in the region for 80 years. Cracker-thin, and just as shatteringly crispy. Even though I am on my low-carb regimen, I had to have a […]

Lunch on Arthur Avenue

What a wonderful, warm winter day to visit Arthur Avenue! We walked over from the New York Botanical Garden — and almost stopped to slurp a few raw clams at Cosenza’s.  Decided against it, though, in favor of wood-fired pizza […]


Pizza and a Big Puzzle

After our morning trip to Bear Mountain, we headed home for a lazy Boxing Day. We did a big — 100 piece! — puzzle, a Christmas gift from Sarah to Sam. Then Hunna dusted off his homemade pizza recipe and […]


Pizza at Marta

Marta was so popular when it opened, it was mobbed no matter what time you went. You were lucky to get a table at 11 p.m. See our previous visit to Marta in Dec. 2015: Pizza at Marta. Now, while […]


A Giant Slice of Pizza

No one at work could believe the size of this pizza slice. Two feet at least! So everyone had to document. Related posts: The High Line and a Pizza Lunch Roberta’s Pizza at Home, Courtesy of Sam Sifton Pizza with […]


Porta Napoli in Harrison

I believe you’re all aware of my fondness for Don Antonio’s pizza. The one in midtown. My go-to pre-theater spot. Well that restaurant is indirectly related to the new Porta Napoli, a Neapolitan pizzeria and wine bar that opened in […]


Pizza at Marta

While the pizza momentum in New York has been building for years now, the quality pies have mostly been Neapolitan in nature: cripsy, yes, but also puffy and slightly chewy. Enter Marta, Danny Meyer’s latest venture with Maialino chef Nick […]


Homemade Pizza

Hunna is on a pizza kick again. Yay for us! This one was made with the Roberta’s dough recipe, but in a sheetpan and topped with Hunna’s homemade sauce and some crumbled sausage. Delishy. Related posts: Roberta’s Pizza at Home, […]


Pizza at the Nanuet Hotel

It’s been ages since we had pizza at the Nanuet Hotel! The place has been around forever (the 40s maybe?); I remember going there with my high school soccer team!   The food was delicious — and cheap! For a […]

Friday Night Pizza and Salad

Greg’s best pizza yet. Really. And afterwards, an evening of Blazing Saddles with Irene, Kris and Tom on the big-sheet TV. Good times. Related posts: Pizza Saves the Porch Night Friday Night at the Farm: Frittata, Blue on Blue and […]


Pizza at The Parlor Dobbs Ferry

A last-minute night out with Kelli led to wood-fired oysters and creamy burrata with greens. And yes, some of the best pizza around. Here’s our supper at The Parlor Dobbs Ferry. (For other coverage of The Parlor Dobbs Ferry, check […]


The Palor in Dobbs Ferry

I’ve heard there have been lines out the door for the pizza at The Parlor, David DiBari’s new restaurant in Dobbs Ferry. But I went a couple of Thursdays ago: there were plenty of open tables and it was easy […]


Pizza Before ‘Glass Menagerie’

Irene and I made an unusual, but delicious, choice for pre-theater supper this time around: we stopped for dinner at the Filling Station on 9W on the way down to the city, intead of eating when we got there. Pizza […]


Killer Pizza, All From the Garden

My hunna makes a killer pizza. Tonight is no exception. Basil and tomatoes from the garden, fresh mozzarella, too. Fabulous. Related posts: The Season’s First Caprese Salad! Iron Pizza Chef: Pizza Night in America Update on the Garden: Zinnias, Hyacinth […]

The High Line and a Pizza Lunch

An adventure in the city, with a walk on the High Line and a pizza lunch at Artichoke Basille, which does New York-style pizza right. Here’s a look at the photos.      Here’s a stop to see “Untitled” by […]


Pizza with Cousins!

An early supper at the ranch: takeout from Cassie’s and the last of this lettuce crop from Sour Cherry Farm. (More is on the way!) The cousins all sat together. Cuties. Laurie!   No photos of Sondra, Leigh or Greg […]


To Gemma, For Boo’s Burrata Pizza

Before a performance of “Sontag: Reborn” at the New York Theater Workshop, Boo and I shared a few dishes at Gemma, her favorite go-to restaurant for when you don’t to think about where you want to go-to. It’s a cute […]


Coals in Port Chester

Let’s try something new today, kids! A photo gallery! Here’s a look at my trip to Coals in Port Chester. You can read the entire post over on Small Bites, but here’s a look at the photos. Verdict: Thumbs up! […]


Supper at o lar in Piermont

I think — I’m not absolutely certain, but I believe — that this is the first date Greg and I have gone on where we left Sam home with a babysitter. We have gone out and left her with a […]

Madison Square Eats

In the little park off to the side of Madison Square Park — sometimes home to a Christmas Village or another such pop-up — there is right now a garden of eating. Food trucks, including one from Roberta’s in Brooklyn, […]


Two Pizzas

We had pizza two nights this week. We got on a jag, I guess. Here’s a look at them both. I’m not sure I want to call this an Iron Pizza Chef, but if you feel you’d like to vote, […]
