Rose Pizza & Pasta: "I am so impressed with Penn Station."


Still well within the bowels of Penn Station, after leaving Don Pepe's, Eliza, BBC and I questioned the likelihood of there being another pizza place hidden in this transit hub that serves up a decent slice. When we saw the front of , we weren't quite sure what to make of it, but we were impressed with the massive selection of beers. They have 24 draughts, three size cups, and they all cost the same amount. So 32 ounces of Guiness costs the same as 32 ounces of Bud Light, and if I remember correctly it is only like, $6, which is crazy. If you are feeling like drinking beer through a straw on the street, this might be the place to go.


We got right into eating this slice and I didn't remember to photograph it right away, but I did get this totally unappetizing picture of the last 1/3rd of it. This was surprisingly good pizza! They just handed it to us right off a tray, and it wasn't quite hot enough, and the beginning lacked the complete crunch I so crave, but the ingredients were of good quality, the flavors were good and there was enough of everything without there being too much of anything! Towards the end this slice was near perfect, and the crust was absolutely impeccable. Ultimately, this slice would've been better if it had gotten thrown back in the oven for a second, but really, this piece of pizza was shockingly good. And what's even more shocking is that the average pizzeria in New York City totally sucks, as far as I can tell, but the two places in Penn Station are both way above average! It's pretty weird to me, but whatever. Weird world, right?

Don Pepe Pizza: "The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel."

I haven't been to Penn Station in years, but it was here that I found the subterranean jungle I was expecting to find at Port Authority. (If I haven't been to either of these places in a long time you might wonder, how do I leave town? The answer is: usually in some touring band's van.) It is seriously such a rad and wonderful place! I bet if I had to commute from Jersey or Long Island to Midtown and I had to come hang around here every day I would be hell of bummed on the place, but just wandering in with Eliza and BBC (happy birthday, buddy!), we were having a blast watching all the tourists and salmon-walking through seas of LI Frat Jocks, current-day Sweathogs, and their various female counterparts.


Somewhere amidst this vast underground labyrinth of commerce, we stumbled upon . Bedecked in neon lights, which my crappy Phone-Cam was not so great at photographing, this place looked straight out of how I imagined the near-future San Francisco of William Gibson's Bridge Trilogy. Granted, Gibson is unbearably corny at moments, but sometimes a guy needs to just check out and turn his brain off, and I think you'd all prefer I read trashy sci-fi than walk around wearing a fake mustache dipped in homemade ether or a clown nose full of gold Dutch Boy spraypaint. ANYWAY.


It seems I forgot to take a picture of the slice at Don Pepe pizza, however, I was able to zoom in and expand the section of the above image that contains the pizza. Notice Chris studiously at work on the Burnt Black Crust Uncertainty Principle (BBCUP), which calculates the degree to which char marks on the bottom of a pizza slice affect its deliciousness.


So, here's that picture. As you can see from the crease lines, this slice was crispy enough, but it's crusty foundation bore too much weight in cheese, forcing it to fold far before the ideal point of roughly 1"-1.5" from the tip. Luckily, this was pretty delicious cheese, and the slice was structurally sound enough that it didn't break into pieces, so it was easy enough to eat the wreckage. This slice could've used a little more sauce, but the sauce that was there was delicious, the cheese tasted great and had a good texture, and the crust had a wonderful crunch. All in all, this may have been the most pleasant surprise of a slice I've had in quite a while.
