$1 Slice Alert: St. Marks’ 2 Bros. Pizza is Officially Open
As promised by Grub Street last week, 2 Bros. Pizza opened today in the just out of bounds Hell’s Kitchen location of 9th Ave. & 40th Street.
I don’t know if I’d normally trek to 9th Ave. for $1 pizza (oh, who am I kidding of course I would). 2 Bros. Pizza is already a well know dollar-a-slice mainstay in the East Village, and clearly they are looking to challenge 99 Cent Fresh Pizza’s domination of Midtown (they have two locations, one just one blocks away on 9th Ave. and 41st.) If today is any indication, they’re going to do pretty well…
Like I said yesterday, I’m no pizza expert- but the $1 slices that are now just across the street from each other are more similar than different. They both lean to the doughy side, and are smaller than the average New York slice… but from my initial tasting, I’ve got to give the edge to 2 Bros.
Then again, I’m not that confident in my own opinion. I like both! What I’d like to see is Adam Kuban do a side by side comparison of the two pizzas, Slice style (i.e. from the eye of somebody who knows about pizza.) What do you say Adam? (And this game of blog tag continues… from Grub Street to Midtown Lunch to Slice.)
2 Bros. Pizza, 542 9th Ave. (on 40th Street)
