Sam & Louie’s pizzas and classy service hearken back to the golden era of Gotham, when the first thin-crusted NY pizza was baked in an art-deco oven by a flapper dating Vito Corleone. The S&L recipe is the closest match to the original 1920s creation. If the hand-tossed house specialty, Sam & Louie’s Best (Italian sausage, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, black olives, red onion, mushrooms, and red and green bell peppers; $15.49 for a 12”, up to $23.99 for an 18”), or the sophisticated Manhattan (creamy alfredo sauce, thin-sliced meatballs, and Canadian bacon) don't satisfy, you can create your own pie from more than 25 fresh toppings. Familiar favorites such as pepperoni, Italian sausage, and mushrooms share wedge-space with buffalo chicken, ricotta cheese, broccoli, and unicorn meat (available seasonally). Prices range from $1.99 per slice up to $14.49 for an 18” of cheese, with each topping costing extra. Available sauces include alfredo, Thai, and pesto.
