57 Napoli Goes High End on Their Chicken Parm

One of my favorite “Zach Missions” was his quest to find the best chicken parmigiana sandwich in Midtown. In fact, the chicken parm search is so ingrained in the Midtown Lunch life, that it was a question in the 2008 Readers’ Poll (you guys chose Labeleca/La Bellezza). Of course, don’t for a second think that is the final word… this search will continue until all options have been reviewed, and what do you know, I’ve been craving chicken parm lately! When I first visited 57 Napoli Pizza e Vino (57th btw Park+Lex) for the $6 pizza special, I eyed the chicken parm on the menu, and this week I had my chance to finally return.

Midtown Happy Hour: 57 Napoli Pizza e Vino

If you like to eat, chances are you like to drink (read: a lot of you are freakin’ lushes), so every Friday afternoon our Happy Hour Correspondent “Mamacita” will post about a different bar in Midtown that fits the Midtown Lunch mentality: unhealthy food, not lame (unless it’s lame in a cool way), and most importantly… cheap.

57 Napoli Pizza e Vino made some news as the novel “speakeasy” pizzeria from chef Salvatore Olivella, formerly of L’asso and No. 28. ML was eager to check out their wallet friendly $6 personal pizza during lunch, but due to opening week hiccups that slice didn’t go over so well. Yet, 57 Napoli hasn’t been reviewed for their new happy hour so this intrepid reporter went out to have a post-work tipple and bite the bullet by buying the –a bit pricey- brick oven pizza with hand pulled mozzarella on the dinner menu.

57 Napoli’s $6 Pizza Special is Kind of a Let Down

Every time a new pizza place opens in Midtown I get hopeful that we will be one step closer to ending the Midtown pizza debate once and for all. 57 Napoli Pizza E Vino seemed promising enough but a bit too expensive, until they introduced the $6 10-inch personal pizza made with fresh mozzarella. It seemed too good to be true.

Could this be the Midtown Lunch fancy pizza savior we’ve been waiting for?

57 Napoli Pizza Adds $6 Lunch Special!

57 Napoli

Great news for cheap bastards, who also like quality pizza. The newly opened 57 Napoli Pizza (on 57th btw. Park+Lex) has decided to add something to their lunch menu just for us… a 10″ plain pizza for $6, available before 3pm. Wood fire brick oven Neapolitan pizza, topped with fresh pulled mozz, made by a guy who used to work at L’asso and No. 28? For $6!?!? This could be good…

Check out the full (revised) lunch menu after the jump.

Midtown Gets a Pizza “Speakeasy”?

Pre-57 Napoli Pizza e Vino storefrontGrub Street reported last week that the C’est Bon Cafe (on 57th btw. Park+Lex) has opened 57 Napoli Pizza e Vino a new “pizza speakeasy” in the 2nd floor space above their cafe. Sadly the menu is mostly out of the Midtown Lunch price range, and it looks strikingly similar to the pizza offerings that have always been on the menu at C’est Bon.  But I have to say we are still kind of curious. Has anybody tried the pizza at this place?  (The new place on the 2nd floor or the original.) Let us know what you think in the comments…
