The "Mixed" pizza at this New York-style pizzeria is piled so high with delicious ingredients that we needed a fork to manage it. Garlic cloves, big chunks of onion, semi-raw green peppers, spicy pepperoni slices - each bite full of pleasant surprises.

Other varieties like Mushroom, Cheese, and Italian Sausage & Green Pepper are also toppings-heavy and quite satisfying. Jalapeno & Onion is spicy enough to induce sweating.

Small touches help evoke the atmosphere of a New York pizzeria. Shakers full of red pepper flakes, oregano and basil are supplied on each table so you can season your slice to taste. There are sturdy paper towels rather than flimsy paper oshibori. The soundtrack is heavy on the R&B.

Whatever varieties you choose, two slices are more than enough for a meal, especially with a side dish like Cole Slaw or Clam Chowder. Drinks include Dr. Pepper and A&W root beer, simple cocktails, wine by the glass or bottle, and beer.
