Dining Out: Hawthorne’s New York Pizza & Bar
I went to lunch the other day with a group of collegues. One of them choose Hawthorne’s because it is his favorite restaurant in the area. I am always skeptical when someone tells me that a place has the best pizza in town - although, I rarely get “bad” pizza.
As a group, we had an order of the garlic knots which were fantastic. Soft, fresh and hot! They were some of the best garlic knots I have ever had.
For my meal, I ordered a couple of slices with pepperoni and mushrooms. It took longer than it should have to get them - quite a while actually. Once they came out - they were outstanding. It truly was some of the best pizza I have had in town. It was similar to many of the other top NY Pizza places in town, but it wasn’t nearly as greasy as some of the others (not that I mind grease.)
Their menu also boast a wide assortment of other items, from chicken wings and stromboli or calzones to pasta and sandwiches. I can not wait to try some of the other menu items. Also, their prices are fairly reasonable with a fairly large slice of NY Pizza starting at $1.75. A 16-inch pie will run you about $12-$15 depending upon toppings.
