Hand-pressed dough, homemade sauce, and a mozzarella-provolone blend make up the tasty foundation of pies from Lucky's Pizza. From there, the possibilities are virtually endless: guests can create their own inventive pizza with toppings like meatballs, banana peppers, bacon, and feta, or pick a pre-imagined specialty pizza such as a buffalo chicken or double cheeseburger. No matter what kind of pie you order, each one gets baked to perfection in Lucky's deck oven?an oven that distributes heat evenly.
Along with pizzas, guests can also fill up on calzones, wings, and bacon-ranch bread. For the ultimate pizza fan or brave soul, Lucky's holds a Supreme Challenge. Folks get a chance to finish the 16-inch Shamrock Supreme pizza, and it's mountains of pepperoni, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, veggies and more meat in just 20 minutes. The rare guest who finishes this quest will not only get their pizza refunded and a commemorative t-shirt, but also get a spot of glory on the Wall of Fame. Of course, folks can split the Shamrock Supreme with the family, albeit with a little less fanfare.
In the kitchen at Mario’s Pizza, chefs heap cheese, steak, and sun-dried tomatoes onto oversize New York–style and sicilian pizza crusts. A white pizza covered in ricotta cheese, fresh garlic, and mozzarella reminds taste buds of eating a delicious snowman, and comes in sizes ranging from 10 inches to as large as 19 inches. Baked pasta and sandwiches, such as a philly steak or veal parmigiana, round out the menu.
All of Times Square Pizza's New York–style pies begin with freshly made dough. Then, a homemade pizza sauce rides to smother any blanks of the bready canvas, followed by toppings of pepperoni, bacon, green peppers, or olives. Aside from pastas and subs, customers can also pair up with drinks such as draft beers from a full bar.
From sporting events to arcade games to electronic trivia, the 30 HD screens at Hellas Restaurant & Sports Bar engage diners with a variety of diversions. When not watching TV, diners can cluster around tables to order from a menu that includes Greek cuisine made with olives and feta cheese, as well as grilled steaks and seafood.
The bar's specialty drinks bear the names of Greek gods, such as the Aphrodite, which includes a sweet blend of Malibu, Midori, and vanilla vodka. During late nights on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the music turns up and the lights go low as the eatery transforms into a nightclub, complete with a live DJ, flashing lights, and actual basilisks that take over the dance floor with their best renditions of the worm.
For the past 20 years, the chefs at Sammios Italian have been perfecting a luscious meat-sauce recipe. The rich tomato gravy studded with tender, savory meat arrives at tables over platters of noodles—spaghetti, lasagna, and ziti, to be specific. In addition to pasta, the chefs marinate pork chops in their own seasoning blend and bread eggplant before smothering it with parmesan cheese. In addition to the dining room, meals are also served amid fresh air on the patio. There, servers continue to roll out dishes such as rib-eye steaks stamped with the USDA’s seal of approval—the outline of a cow waving a white flag.
