Families can agree on eating pizza for dinner, even if they're divided about whether the moon is a satellite or the earth’s malformed twin. Set aside differences over a slice of pizza with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of specialty pizza and calzones at Este Pizzeria.
The chefs at Este Pizzeria layer house-made sauces and gourmet ingredients atop New York–style crusts before baking them to a crispy golden brown. The restaurant's menu walks diners through a pizza party of options, such as a Veggie Lasagna creation ($17–$21) that tops a dough disk with sauce, ricotta cheese, spinach, tomatoes, and cheese. Patrons can eat inside or simulate an outdoor experience by venturing to the patio and chewing on house specialties such as white pizza ($16–$20)—with olive oil, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, oregano, and garlic—or Terra pizza ($18–$22), topped with a mix of freshly cooked veggies. Vegan options include dairy-free vegan cheese or no cheese at all on a pie ($12–$19), dunking taste buds in spices, pizza sauce, and vegetables. To create calzones and stromboli ($8 for a regular; $14 for a large), Este Pizzeria's pie slingers simply send their pizzas through a bank teller tube and serve the inside-out modifications that emerge.
Este Pizzeria’s sign bears an unmistakable resemblance to those found at New York subway stations—a fitting image for a pizzeria that slices up East Coast–style pies. The oversize, thin-crust triangles bear toppings as varied as ham, fresh basil, and housemade vegan meatballs. Their selection of 13 specialty pizzas includes entirely vegan disks as well as the Clay, a heaping of meatballs, pepperoni, ham, and sausage. In typical New York fashion, diners can also opt for strombolis and calzones and are permitted to yell, “I’m walkin’ here!” at other patrons when exiting the restaurant.
