And Then There Were Two (99 Cent Pizza Now $1.49)

I promised I wouldn’t cry post about all the price increases, because there were just too many, and it is starting to sound like a broken record at this point… but some things are much bigger than a Price Hike List (which I put up on the left hand Navbar on Wednesday).  For example- the $1 slice of pizza, which is hands down, the cheapest Midtown Lunch there is.  Well, I’m sad to report that Z Deli on 8th Ave. btw. 48+40th has upped the cost of their slice from .99 to $1.49 (a 50% increase!!!), leaving 99 Cent Fresh Pizza (one location on 43th btw. Lex+3rd, and one out of bounds location behind Port Authority)  and the Prince Deli (on 3rd Ave. btw. 43+44th) as the only two remaining purveyors of the $1 slice of pie in Midtown.

The Z Deli slice was barely worth $1, I can’t even fathom anybody paying $1.50- but more importantly, what will 99 Cent Fresh Pizza do if the cost of flour, and cheese continues to rise.  Shut down, or change their name?  Either would be incredibly upsetting…


  • I believe if 99 Cent Fresh Pizza follows suit we should call the attorney general’s office and have them inspect the possibility of collusion.

  • Hate to be a pain in the arse Zach,but a 50% increase would be too $1.4751

    Don’t look at me like that,the others do it on punctuation.

  • Rudy, shouldn’t you be on a plane?

  • Tomorrow.

    The Bageletts took off from heathrow last night.

  • I’ve informed Homeland Security of your plans to enter the United States and our fair city.

    Good Luck

  • I’ve dispatched DocChuck (a.k.a. CockChug) to JFK with a fake customs uniform, a ToysRUs cavity probe kit and a hamster insertion tool (a.k.a. ice cream scoop). You kind sir may want to bring a pencil to bite on

  • Speaking of “pain in the arses”, Rudy what time should I meet you at Shake Shack this weekend, for the Rudy McBagel profile everybody has been clamoring for?

  • Way to try to pin him down Zach

    But we all know that Rudy is Midtown Lunch’s Keyser Soze

    (And poof, just like that, he’s gone)

  • I know how john lennon felt now.

  • Hmmmmm, maybe they will drop the ‘fresh’ to save on cost?

  • check out!
    99 cent pizza is back (@48th & 8th ave.)

  • Actually, the pizza place on St. Marks between 2nd and 3rd Aves. is $1 / slice.
