Part of the tragedy of my age is that I am no longer permitted to eat cheese. While at some fancy pizza place in foodie LA I might order the occasional very special cheeseless pizza, I suspect if I had attempted that order in this New York classic street pizza venue I would have been pelted with slices in front of the kids.
South right off 86th on Lexington west side of the street. Could have been Third Ave but almost certain it was Lex. When I was a kid I went three to four times a week to the "have a slice 25 cents" on 86th about three doors west of Lexington but that place is gone.
I think I know the place, I want to say Mamma's something, can't remember, could have been Papa's something. You definitely don't find 25cent slices any more. There's a great place on 2nd and 84th called Two Boots, if you're ever there again.
