Singleton’s is also worthy of consideration.

The foodie crowd is obsessed with turkey and the wolf. Hipster food in my book.

I do like the Cubans at steins deli a lot too. And the banh mi place outside Hong Kong market

Hong Kong Market is my happy place on a lot of levels. I shake my head in sadness when i see people going into the crappy buffet next door.

(Also, welcome back)

Which one of you want to trade me something from any of the places referenced in this thread for New York pizza or bagels?

You are all making me hungry and nostalgic.

If New York City actually had a road trip, a Reuben might make the list! (Some may argue pizza is a sandwich...)

As good as food is here in general, we are sorely lacking in truly good pizza or bagel places.

There's been a pizza renaissance here in the last ~5-7 years...Pizza Delicious, Oak Oven, Ancora, Mid City Pizza, Midway, Pizza Domenica...lots of good options.

when I was at Tulane in the early 80s, it was a pizza ghost town... sadly, the best pizza during my four years showed up at
TJ Quill's... some dude took over their kitchen and made awesome pizzas with garlic butter brushed on the crust... then Al built his pizza shed outside of the Boot. The first month, the pizzas were off the hook.. then Al started to buy cheaper ingredients and it devolved to the level of Pizza Man. Domino's didn't arrive in New Orleans until my senior year.

Oh I do. But they're really good. Make your way out .In fact I'm glad you responded because I certainly should have included Venezia's.

Sadly, GretnaGrn is right.

Lafayette has three places better than anything i’ve found in New Orleans.
There are a few places in the same ballpark but none as good.

In my opinion, of course :angel:

Gretna, what was the pizza place in our day that offered a large one-topping pizza and 2 cans of Coke for like $10? AH! got it, Roman Pizza. It was pretty good. They had a store somewhere down in the Garden District on a corner with big doors they could open on nice days... eating there on a nice day with the doors open was great.

That's it but, honestly, I was never that impressed with them or several of the others mentioned (Mo's on the Westbank should probably be on the list of better options in town, BTW). There's ok pizza, but as a whole what we have here just isn't as good as what you can get in most other major cities. Purely my opinion, of course.

Describing a pizza place in New Orleans as good is like talking about the great jambalaya in New York. All relative.

The only pizza I’ll eat in NOLA is from Ciro’s cot Sud and/or Pizza Delicious. But even those aren’t THAT impressive (and I can make as good or better at home and I’m not a great great pizza maker)

* on edit “only pizza I’ll eat” sounds much more extreme/snooty than I meant it. Spend money on would be more accurate.

There is a New Orleans styled food takeout place in the humongous Reading Terminal Market in Center City Philadelphia called Beck’s Cajun Cafe started by some New Orleans transplants. It’s pretty good. The muffuletta is quite serviceable.

If y'all like Mo's or Venezia's, you'd love Pizza Delicious. Like it's 100x better.

Yes. Mid-City Pizza is better than Mo's and current Venezia's, too.

I’ve actually been. It was pretty good. I’m not sure New Orleans good, but no question good for the northeast.

Now let’s talk cheesesteaks. Pat’s and Gino’s are so overrated.

This is as good as a compendium as I’ve seen here in Philly. Can’t go wrong with all but the one’s you said.

https://www.phillymag.com/foobooz/2018/ ... ladelphia/

I’m partial to Oregon Steaks. This write up about sums up Oregon:

The cheesesteak — all grease and salt and spongy bread — was designed by the sandwich gods to rebalance the body’s humors after a night of beers and shots. It’s a summation of poor life choices in sandwich form, and Oregon Steaks knows that. That’s why they’re there. And that’s why you are, too. 2654 South 10th Street, South Philly.

Is Mo’s on the West Bank? If so, someone brought that to our tailgate once and I liked it. Not enough to drive over there and buy it. But I liked it.

Yes...there's nothing wrong with it (other than the canned mushrooms), it was good for New Orleans pizza 10 years ago, but wouldn't crack a top 10 now. Again, there's been a pizza renaissance, so anyone who says our pizza is ok and then lists places from the '90s is really missing out. Tavolino in Algiers Point is good if you need pizza on the west bank.

Midway is my favorite, but you have to like that style. Pizza Domenica for thin crust
