Top 5 Late Night Slices in NYC
It’s 3 am and you just left the club with an insatiable hunger. Options are slim: diner food sounds terrible, your favorite restaurant is closed, and you would never hit that halal truck for sanitary reasons. Then you remember that this is New York City. Home of the best pizza in the fucking world. And the best part about that? Most of the best pizza joints are open this late. We love two things: partying our asses off and pizza. Surprisingly, the two go hand in hand. Remember pizza parties?
Here are our Top 5 Late Night Slices in NYC!
Artichoke Basille’s Pizza
Open until 5am Tuesday-Saturday
With a handful of locations scattered around Lower Manhattan, Artichoke has been serving up hot slices of heavenly pizza since 2008. Their Chelsea location, found smack in the middle of 1OAK and Avenue, is a hotspot for club goers looking to satisfy late night cravings. Try their signature Artichoke slice, cut by the slice at least 2x the size of your face and oozing with fresh artichoke hearts, spinach, cream sauce, fresh mozzarella and pecorino romano cheese.
2 Bros. Pizza
Open until 4am Thursday-Saturday
New York City is all about finding the best bang for your buck. When it comes to pizza, the dollar slice is king. Although there are many one-off pizzerias attempting to claim their stake in the game, few do it better than 2 Bros. Pizza. With a take it or leave it taste, the $1 slices are sure to appease your appetite while keeping your wallet full.
Lil Frankie’s Pizza
Open until 4am Friday & Saturday
Found in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Lil Frankie’s is hands down one of the best slices in town. With a variety of fresh topping options and an even wider dinner menu, this pizzeria’s quaint ambiance is the perfect late-night spot to grub down with friends or that girl you just met at the club.
Bleecker Street Pizza
Open until 5am Friday & Saturday
Bleecker Street Pizza’s Tuscan style thin-crust pizza has become a favorite amongst New Yorkers, and with good reason. Slices are served straight up and into the wee hours of the morning.
Famous Original Ray’s Pizza
Open until 5am daily
Ray’s Pizza isn’t famous for no reason! This is the quintessential New York cheese slice. The menu isn’t expansive because it doesn’t need to be. Ray’s repertoire of cheese, fresh mozzarella, and pepperoni slices are simply delectable.
