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 a beautiful 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."
