Tag Archives: Scarr’s Pizza
I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…
Sometimes all you want is just a simple, greasy. cheesy slice of pizza. Just like the old days. Scarr’s not only provides a nostalgic 70’s atmosphere, but it has great pizza. The regular slice is slicked with grease and a sauce that only slightly resembles fresh tomatoes. It glistens and soaks the paper plate it’s served on. It’s dirty and quick but mighty tasty. Price: $3

My search for the best pizza in New York continues….
There are old-school pizzerias and then there are old-school pizzerias. Scarr’s harkens back to a different time than the city’s oldest pizzeria Lombardi’s when Italian immigrants were cooking tomato pies in old coal ovens.
Scarr’s is reminiscent of a time not that long ago (I hope) when I was a child – the 1980’s and it’s crazy to use that in the same sentence as the world old.
