PLAN DATE: TUES / APR. 23
NYC has its fair share of eclectic pizza joints, but there’s nothing wrong with a traditional brick oven pie. At John’s Pizza of Bleecker Street, that’s exactly what you’ll get: true, NY-style pizza. And emphasis on pie, because at John’s there are no slices—it’s an all or nothing situation. The recipe for John’s pizza hasn’t changed in over 100 years, and there’s a reason why. It hits the spot. Seating can be snug, as might be expected from a casual pizza joint. If you’re looking to split some grub with your boo for a casual night out, John’s is where it’s at.
Continue your night of casual and relaxing fun with some beers at dive bar Down the Hatch. This is the kind of place where most patrons are either watching a sports game or taking shots at the bar (yes, even on a Tuesday). If you’re not a sports fan, then people-watching may be your activity of choice for the night. Inexpensive, and chill—it’s the perfect place for a weekday night.
278 Bleecker Street, Manhattan
idk tip: If you want to try different topping combos, ask to have your pie split into two separate orders.
