The perfect New York Slice should be cheap, large, and cheesy with just the right amount of grease droplets. That’s exactly the kind of pizza they have at Lorenzo’s. This South Street deli makes huge, 20-inch pies with slices that fold in half like there’s a perforated line down the middle and taste good even when they’re just reheated from the window case. They’re also open until 4am on the weekends, which makes it the perfect place to end a night out.
