John's Pizzeria ****
260 West 44th Street
(between 7th & 8th Avenues
off Times Square
Description & Atmosphere
John's Pizzeria Times Square location is so good, customers are there in a New York
minute! It's conveniently
located in the heart of the Broadway theater district, just down
the street from Carmine's (our
favorite family-style Italian restaurant).
The Restaurant is 10,000 square feet - making it the largest Pizzeria
in the US.
Where Once There was Prayer...
Now There is Pizza
The site used to be a Gospel
Church dating back to the late 1800's. John's was established in 1929.
Today, John's is a
popular modern 3-tier split-level pizzeria. The dramatic space features
two open, coal-fired pizza ovens, a curved
bar, hardwood floors, a wrap-around balcony, a huge mural, soaring
high ceilings and
ornate stained-glass dome (below).
This restaurant is a lot larger than it's original counterpart
in Greenwich Village. Even if you just stop by for a drink, it's
worth checking out. Once you get a whiff of the garlic and
taste their pizza, we think you'll agree that it's some of the
best in the city.

The Best Pizza in New York
Quoting the TV Food Network — eating
at John's is a "heavenly
experience." The "food is sinfully good", you're "thankful
for the great service" and you'll probably "have to confess
that you ate too much."
