I’ve been raving about the perfect wood-fired Neapolitan pies at Kesté since this blog began (in fact, it was my first review back in 2009). Well, I’m pleased to say 5 years later, they’re still turning out perfectly charred pizzas with a crisp, pillowy crust. The Pizza del Re is one of their best, topped with housemade mozzarella, prosciutto di parma, mushrooms, and a superb truffle spread. Price: $21

Nick Morgenstern has created quite the little restaurant empire of late. Just in the last year, he’s opened a coffee/sandwich café (El Rey), an avant garde ice cream shop (Morgenstern’s), and now a pizza-focused restaurant – all in the Lower East Side. Each of his concepts have garnered press and lots of crowds. He either has a great PR team or he subscribes to the Field of Dreams school of thought. If you build it, they will come.
