NY Pizza Station's chefs serve authentic Sicilian-style pizzas topped with dough and sauces that are made fresh daily. They top these hand-tossed gourmet pies with a myriad of inventive toppings, including blackened Cajun chicken, ricotta cheese, and buffalo sauce. As their pizzas bubble in ovens, they cook classic garlic knots and wings tossed in one of nine sauces—garlic parmesan, lemon pepper, and teriyaki, to name three.
A recently expanded menu and dining room transform this former pizza stand into a true Italian restaurant. The chefs introduce taste buds to the new and improved NY Pizza Station through hearty pastas, chicken parmesan, and exotic seafood scampis. A new team of bartenders concocts adult libations and pours cold brews at the full bar. On select days, NY Pizza Station hosts karaoke, trivia, and live DJs, as well as face painters who decorate younger patrons to resemble their favorite animal or hedge-fund logo.

More than 1,200 miles separate Corelli's Pizza and Pasta from New York City, though you wouldn't know from inside. Chefs Joe and David toss together generously sized New York–style pizzas; their medium pie measures 14 inches across and their extra-large pie measures one standard bigfoot foot: 18 inches. To help branch out from the standard pizza shop offerings, the kitchen staff also prepares pasta, sub sandwiches, and calzones and organizes a wine-tasting club.
Jointly owned by Italian and Brazilian chefs, Francesco’s Pizzeria divides its menu up according to the national origin of each dish. For a taste of Italy, diners can sink teeth into a traditional margherita pizza or Capricciosa pizza with calabrese sausage, while unique toppings of heart of palm, cinnamon, and guava denote a Brazilian pizza’s tropical roots.
Enormous front windows flood the brick-lined restaurant with light, illuminating plates covered in five styles of wings and hearty baked pastas. When not occupied chewing through a sub, guests can study the dining room’s irreverent framed pictures of cartoon vegetables dancing on cutting boards, lounging by the pool, and doing one another’s taxes.
