If you've never had authentic New York pizza, then what you think is pizza might in fact be a cunningly disguised pretzel. Today's Groupon clears up the confusion: for $10, you get $20 worth of freshly prepared pizza, pasta, and more from Pizza Shack, located on New York's Lower East Side.
Pizza Shack is a family-owned pizza-and-pasta-ria that has been shelling out traditional Italian fare for more than 68 years. Aside from the signature pies, the massive menu contains a bounty of pastas ($7–$9.50), hot hero subs ($7.50–$10), and grilled sandwiches ($4–$6.50), alongside an impressive lineup of salads, sides, and entrees. Specialties include chicken marsala, a mushroom-clad boneless bird sautéed in marsala wine ($13.50), and veal diavolo, veal sautéed with sweet and hot cherry peppers, white wine, and vinegar ($15). Buildable pizzas start at $7.50, with specialty 'zas such as the mini vodka pie ($9.50) and lasagna pizza ($17.50+) running a bit more. Today's deal can be used for dine-in or carryout for passionate pizza lovers looking to create a night's worth of sauce-slathered memories.
- A game at Madison Square Garden is only part of the New York experience. After playing the Knicks, the Phoenix Suns get authentic by hitting up Pizza Shack (525 Grand Street, 212-477-3367), one of the best places in the city to grab a Coke and a slice. - Ethan Rouen, American Way
- Their pizza is delicious (we always order the vegetarian) and the people who work there are very friendly. - Susan L., Yelp
