Today’s post is the first in a series. We are going to highlight some of our favorite pizza spots in the Portland area.
Today we want to introduce you to Escape from New York Pizza – Leigh Anne’s personal favorite.
Escape from New York Pizza is located at 622 NW 23rd. It is a perfect place to stop for lunch during your shopping adventures on NW 23rd. It opens at 11:30 a.m. and closes at 11:00 p.m.
Not only will the pizza taste like you are eating in NYC but the atmosphere will make you feel like you are in NYC as well! Sitting is rather limited – there are a few tables both inside and out but I prefer a stool at the counter.
This place has good pizza. There are usually 3-4 choices each day.
You can check out the days offerings on the board. Fridays are our favorite because they always have black olive pizza! Cheese and pepperoni are always part of the selection.
This place has character – from the wall decor to the people behind the counter to the old cash register.
In the true NY style the pizza has a thin crust and plenty of good pizza grease to go with it – yum! So next time you have a craving for good old NY style pizza take a trip down to NW 23rd.
You can sit and watch them prepare the pizza and if you are lucky you will even get to see them throw it in the air!
So next time you are craving a yummy, greasy, cheesy piece of pizza – Escape from New York Pizza is your place!
