Midtown workers shouldn’t have all the fun, so to even the score, I’ve brought on Daniel Krieger as an official Downtown Lunch Correspondent to write up some of the tasty stuff you can get in the lower half of Manhattan. He’s a great photographer (ensuring good food porn), but more importantly he is a lover of cheap, unique and delicious eats (or as I like to call it- Midtown Lunch’ish food.) This week Daniel discovers the Vinny Vincenz pizza truck parked down near the South Street Seaport. The cool thing is, this could double as a Midtown Lunch because rumor has it there is also a new VV truck parked on 40th btw. Broadway+6th.
For the next month, the Vinny Vincenz pizza truck will be testing out the waters across the street from the South Street Seaport. I swung by to try a slice and ended up chatting with the man himself and trying a slice to see if it was worth the price tag.
He’s going to give it a try for 7 days a week, while keeping another truck at the Union Square location. I’ve seen that one before in USQ but was deterred by the somewhat high price tag for mobile pizza. $2.50 for a slice of cheese is steep, but by South Street Seaport your options for a good cheap lunch are somewhat limited. (Who wants to spend 13 bucks on a Heartland Brewery cheeseburger? Not me, that’s who.)
