“First you take a handful of napkins… no fork and knife!” Channeling Jon Stewart, Timur piled on the pepper flakes, greased up his paper plate and ate two more slices to follow the first in typical New York fashion. Visiting from Paris, I promised him some true NY slices before he returned home and if only there were weeks not days I would have given him an official pizza tour: Lombardi’s, Kesté, Nicoletta, Grimaldi’s, Di Fara, Robertas… the list is endless. Though I only eat pizza with those that don’t commit the largest of sins: la forquetta satanica. Lucky for him, he passed the challenge.
