BAM! Here it is–the very first pizzeria in the United States of America: Lombardi’s located on the corner of Spring Street and Mott Street on the edge of Little Italy in Manhattan, New York City. All pizza lovers must eat here at some point in their lives. . .I finally made it here after over 25 years of living in New York City–sorry, I have been busy.
Is this really the first pizzeria in America?–the owners claim it is, and I am willing to believe them until I hear otherwise. They have a huge brick oven in this place that was built in 1905. . .the cooks told me that it can hold up to 24 small pizza pies. . .that’s a lot. Above you see me getting ready to gobble the original Lombardi’s pie–the margherita. The sauce is tomatoey, the mozzarella is gooey, the crust is charred from the hot brick oven in a good way but just a tad too thick and chewy for me. Overall this is a pizza joint and a pizza pie worthy of your attention. . .you will not be disappointed if you eat here. C’mon over and soak up some historic pizza atmosphere the next time you find yourself in New York City. . .I am confident that you will like. . .mmmm, aaaahh!
I send you first-in-the-country vibes from Lombardi’s in New York City. . .feel them. . .they are worthy of your attention.
