My review on TripAdvisor:
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.
Fresh Pizza & Deli at 876 Sixth Avenue
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 Bacon, Egg and Cheese here is a nice complexity of flavors
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.
