In the far-flung lands of the Mediterranean—where the women have long, flaxen hair that hangs down to their long, flaxen legs and the men play football without ever desecrating the ground with the foul mark of a cleat—they speak of a simple “tomato pie” that may be enjoyed in any corner of the piazza. Whether you’re visiting your loving mother in her Italian villa or sitting under the watchful eye of a mustachioed gargoyle in one of the famous “pizzariums,” you won’t have to look far to find one of these steaming, breaded tomato discs.
And now rumor has it that this legendary delicacy has arrived on our shores. One man, the intrepid Scott Wiener, claims to know the secrets of the strange alcove known as “Little Italy,” and he’ll guide those bold enough to journey into its still-beating heart in search of the evolved slice that has mutated to please American DNA—the alleged “New York Slice.”
Today’s Groupon is a three-hour historic pizza walk through Lower Manhattan, courtesy of Scott’s Pizza Tours (located at 53 Spring St. in Manhattan), for $15—half off the normal $30 price. Enjoy a historic perspective on the ultimate staple of city dining as you are guided by a Certified Pizza Enthusiast through Little Italy and Greenwich Village, stopping for slices at three of the most illustrious pizzerias in town. Scott’s tour guides are serious about pizza, as evidenced by their awesome pizza blog and these pizza tour photos. Also included in the tour is your own personal pizza survival kit (a pizza journal and goody bag). But if it’s oodles of toppings you’re after, be forewarned: This guy keep it simple. As we all know, the cheese stands alone.
Scott’s Pizza Tours has received loads of rave reviews from all over. Fox 5 News reported: “It’s no secret. New York City has the best pizza. It also the best guided tours. So it was just a matter of time before the two got together.” WNBC called the tour “your own ticket to pizza paradise!” Watch the entire NBC clip below:
Yelpers unanimously gave the tour five stars, with nothing but praise for Scott Wiener’s wisdom and sagacity. Here’s what one person said:
- “Passion cannot be faked. Scott knows what he’s talking about, and his enthusiasm is infectious. He may forget to tell you he sells T-shirts, so ask- it’s a one of a kind souvenir. An excellent experience.” - Endura G.
