Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NYC Food Cart Tour is my exploration of the hard-working vendors feeding NYC’s population every day.
Long before it was hip to eat from or operate a food truck, Jiannetto’s Pizza was serving up grandma-style pizza to the suits of Wall Street. Originally from Staten Island, this truck makes some of the crispest, lightest, freshest pizza in the entire city.
Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
There’s a specific pizza slice in New York City that foodies go crazy for and somehow always ends up on best pizza lists across the city. Truthully, I find it almost repulsive and I never want to put myself through the feeling of having a heart attack again. It’s the infamous artichoke slice from Artichoke Pizza and it’s basically globs of greasy spinach artichoke dip on top of pizza. Perhaps I’ve never been drunk enough to understand the appeal.
So I was a little skeptical when Heartwood opened in the former Donatella space serving high-end, unconventional pizza from a wood oven and featured a pizza with a creamed spinach base. When Peter Luger Goes Out For Pizza is the pizza that has been getting quite a bit of acclaim here so I was eager to try it. But I was scared – I didn’t want another heart attack. I asked the waitress how rich this pizza was and she wasn’t sure how to answer the question. Fair enough. She didn’t want to commit me to something I would regret. Anyway, I decide to take the plunge.
