    I lived there for 7 years and I love food, had a blog (shut down now..)

    And Artichoke's Sicilian is excellent, for a slice, but not the best

    I think Brooklyn has quite a few pizzarias. Could you be a bit more specific?

    Lol! Yes indeed. I lived in NYC myself for a while as well. No lack of good food. Which pizza is the best boils down to personal preference so you can call me crazy but there is something about Grimaldi's that I just love. I know some people classify it as purely a tourist joint but every time I go back to NYC now the place is like a beacon. Get settled in, walk the bridge and eat some pizza.

    Pizza is very complicated - to call out the best induces all kinds of arguments and parameters/moods since we must consider each person's taste, we'll have to have the same baseline (compare a peperoni to a peperoni, etc...)

    Anyway, for me here's is my list of top 5

    DiFara's Sicilian (Brooklyn), you can wrap me in this one and bury me - Consistently the best pie (if you have time that is...)
    Zero Otto Nove in the Bronx
    Motorino's Pancetta pie
    and Roberta's in Bed Stuy (have not been there in 2 years so not sure how they are doing)
    Artichoke is great, and not putting them down, but I think it's inconsistent since Sal and Francis expanded their empire, but as I said earlier there is no better on the run slice, and after a night out of drinking you'll think you are in heaven
    Lucali's in Carrol Gardens (Brooklyn) used to be one my favorites, but since the owner got stabbed, he's just not making the same sauce IMO

    I should stop now

    Great list. I need to get outside of Manhattan more. As for Artichoke's, I agree with you. It could be more consistent, but when they hit it, for me, it's heaven.
