This Groupon is valid at both the Tropical Parkway and Charleston Boulevard locations.
Mark Rich's N.Y. Pizza & Pasta quells grumbling tummy tracts with an expansive menu of New York–style pizza, sumptuous pasta dishes, sandwiches, and other traditional Italian-American fare. The eatery's edible-disc artistes match the physical might needed to hand-toss New York–style, thin-crust pizzas to perfection with the diplomatic panache required to peaceably unite delectable topping factions ($13.29 for a 16"). Sample the savory melding of tomato, mushroom, garlic, green pepper, and onion atop the utopian N.Y. Veggie pizza ($13.99 for a 12"), or assemble your own all-star slice with a selection of toppings ($0.60–$2 each, depending on pizza size). Premiere pastas such as ricotta-stuffed, baked manicotti sate cravings for non-circular comestibles ($10.69), while sandwiches, including the onion- and pepper-laden Philly cheesesteak, give french fries a dish to cry on after being left out of all pizza platters ($7.59). Gluten-free options are available for both pasta and pizza offerings, and both casual locations have outdoor seating for sunbathing crusts.
Mark Rich's NY Pizza & Pasta
Every morning, workers at Mark Rich's NY Pizza & Pasta open bright red and gold canopies above tables in their alfresco dining area. Inside or outside, the casual restaurant invites customers to linger over slices of pizza or a dish of gelato or spumoni. Chefs craft their pizzas New York–style: thin, well-dressed, and able to stop a moving taxi with a focused glare. In addition to pies topped with artichoke hearts, sausage, and jalapeños, the menu also includes Italian-style desserts, pastas, and gluten-free dishes.
