Franny's, Brooklyn, NY.
Is it any surprise that the 21st century pizza experience would be in Brooklyn? Franny's, located in the Prospect Heights neighborhood, a place that is just as serious about sourcing the best sustainable and local ingredients as they are about serving great cocktails and food, is getting even the most hardcore Manhattanites to cross the water for the wood-oven pizza. The kind of place where you can't go wrong no matter what you get (we suggest the ricotta, buffalo mozzarella, basil, garlic, and hot peppers pie and also the tomato, sausage, and buffalo mozzarella), Franny's commitment to making sure they're part of the solution and not the problem makes you feel good even after you're ready for a post-meal nap. From the renewable energy the restaurant uses to convert kitchen grease to biodiesel fuel, Franny's is one of America's new pizza institutions.
