Joe's Pizza, NY.
New York City's Greenwich Village might be less bohemian and more expensive apartments and college students trying to get into bars with fake IDs, but one institution remains strong. Joe's on Carmine, around since 1975, doesn't have the fancy-looking brick oven, the list of organic and locally sourced ingredients on the wall, or tables made from reclaimed wood. What it does have, according to locals, is one of the best damn slices of no frills pizza you're going to find in the five boroughs. It's just perfectly melted cheese and zesty tomato sauce that you might flavor a little with garlic powder or a few shakes of the hot pepper bottle, but is also just fine the way it is in all its roof of your mouth burning–glory.
