My search for the best pizza in New York continues….
Some people (like my friend Jason and myself) dream of eating pizza, while others dream of owning a pizzeria. That was the case for firefighter Mike Fiore.
Sadly, Mike did not live to see the opening of Fiore’s. He was one of the brave men who perished in the attacks of the World Trade Center. In his honor, his friend Steve Cunningham turned Mike’s dream into a reality. And thus Fiore’s was born on Bleecker Street.
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
