Ever since I can remember I’ve been a huge fan of pizza, eating it whenever I can get my grubby hands on it. I don’t care if it’s two in the morning just before bed, or four in the afternoon and I’m ruining my appetite for dinner — if a slice is available, I’m going to eat it.
Imagine my joy and pizza-eating delight when Luigi’s Slice found its way into the MARRS building on 20th between J and K. It’s central to all of midtown, so I can get to it from any of my local hangouts whether I’m up on 29th & E or down at 16th and P. Granted, there are quite a few pizza-by-the slice locations around the grid, but this is my favorite, so that’s why I’m mentioning it here first. (I mean before I mention any of the others, which I will eventually get around to typing to you about.)
Prices for a slice range from $4.15 to $4.85, which isn’t bad given the going rates and the size of the slice. Several beers are on tap, as well as some wine from a bottle, in addition to the usual soda fountain. (I typically take my slice with water, so as not to fill up on fluids.) The slice itself is somewhere between New York Thin Crust, and Chicago Deep Dish. It’s filling. It’s good. Check it out for yourself next time you’re out. It’s a great follow-up after enjoying the night at Lounge on 20.
Many a weeknight I can be found running down the street in an attempt to beat their eleven-o’clock closing hour; that’s when the pizza tastes best.
