Slice Joint

Last Updated: August 2021

Current Status: Walk-up counter service open for lunch and dinner in the Roost complex.

Overview: Really good (NYC-style) pizza.  Square ones too. That is the bottom line.

There is other background information that might be useful, but the fact is a really good NYC-style slice is hard to find and we presume the decision of nearly every person who reads this will be driven by that fact.  Other information that might be helpful: the ingredients are very good; they offer drinks; Chef Rachel Marie spent four years at the acclaimed Roberta’s in Brooklyn; the first Slice Joint location is on the Lower East Side and this is the first one outside of NYC.
