I was writing a blog on the NoMAD neighborhood for my blog, MywalkinManhattan.com and I was in the need of a snack because I did not have time for lunch. I came across the sign at Fresh Pizza and Deli at 876 Sixth Avenue for a $1.00 slice of pizza and I had to go in and try it. What a nice surprise.

I ordinarily don’t put much stock into a 99 cent slice place because the pizza is usually passable, somewhat soggy with no flavor and barely cooked on the bottom but here it was different. The pizza was well-cooked with a crisp bottom and a nice cheesy top. The sauce had nice flavor to it from all the spices in the tomato sauce and even when the slices I had the three times I was there always tasted really good. The cooks there know how to make pizza.

The Pizza here is really good

I was so impressed by the pizza the last time I was there that I looked over their extensive menu for other items to try in the future. They really have an eclectic menu that includes the standard wraps and sandwiches like grilled cheese, chicken and tuna salad and even some Indian specialties like Samosas. All the prices for their sandwiches and wraps were between $4.95-$8.95 which I thought we very fair.

Outside the restaurant on a sandwich board was a special for a Bacon, Egg and Cheese on a soft roll for $4.95. When I visited the store on a cool day, I stopped in and ordered one and I have to tell you it was so good.

What a nice combination of flavors from the two scrambled eggs cooked in clarified butter and the crisp smoky bacon and the two slices of American cheese on top all melted together in a soft bun. On a cold day there is nothing like it. It walked up to Greeley Square right up the road and sat down in the park and enjoyed it. The perfect comfort food to warm you up.

The Fresh Pizza and Deli is nothing more that a small hole in the wall on the corner of Sixth Avenue and West 31st Street with a small counter to eat at but the place has so much character. It caters to all the locals, homeless guys when they get some money, the business people (the few that work in the area during COVID) and the construction workers who are pretty much tearing the area apart and renovating it. It’s a little run down and that’s its charm. It is a real neighborhood spot.

The menu has all sorts of breakfast sandwiches and platters, the pizzas, and a nice assortment of desserts and baked products. It wide array of sandwiches include Italian, Chicken, Egg and Tuna Salad, wraps, grilled cheeses with fillings and a selection of hamburgers. What’s nice is all the items are under $10.00 and it is a nice place when you are on a budget.

The guys that work here are really friendly and helpful and in the times I have been here very welcoming.

I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
