Food Porn: Manhattan Pizza and Pasta

UPDATE: Since writing this article, Manhattan Pizza has since closed.

I’ve been working at my job downtown now for almost 9 months, and the number of places that I can go to on a lunch break and have it be a new experience is becoming harder to accomplish.  Not too long ago a new pizzeria opened in downtown Buffalo, Manhattan Pizza and Pasta (right off of the Chippewa strip on Delaware), giving the club going/drinking crowd another option to a 3am meal.

Now I went during  lunch hours on a random Friday, so the crowd was different then you would expect post-midnight on a weekend.  They apparently  have some great pasta options and there pizzettes are reportedly delicious, however, I didn’t have the time to try those options and instead I ordered from their pizza’s that were available behind the glass.

I ended up trying the slices shown above, and for a new pizza place it was pretty good.  (Alli edit: Zetti’s is still the best for ny style pizza).  The slices I had were very flavorful, the crust was crispy and not in the least bit flimsy (how I enjoy it).  For being precooked and then warmed up again, they still had a fresh taste.  There was a good crowd for lunch but the line was moving  quickly and that day they had over 10 different styles available, which I appreciated because who just wants cheese and pepperoni?  The eating area is surprisingly large, they have a large seating area with a nice flat panel TV mounted on the wall.

As someone who frequents downtown/allentown late at night, and gets incredibly hungry while intoxicated, I am always for having another option for those late night cravings.  This pizza place seems to be a great addition to the downtown area and late night scene.

  1. basically the food porn posts from bizzle bros to get its own blog was a direct result from your new job being close to all these places

    also, those slices look like a mini-version of zetti’s (alli, any taste comparisons?)

    “Alli and I sat and ate and watched CNN.” lol
