Do we even need to mention how much we love making national "best-of" lists?
This time, the New York Post has deemed our own Pizzeria Lola as one of the 17 best pizzas in the nation (need we even mention that New York is the pinnacle of all things pizza pie, so, this is a particular honor?).
Here's what the Post had to say about the standout pizzeria:
"Not many great American pizzerias feature pies topped with soy-glazed Niman Ranch short ribs or kimchi and Korean sausage. Pizzeria Lola, opened in 2010 by Korean transplant Ann Kim, may be iconoclastic in some ways — including the cheeky decor, featuring a wall of exposures from the in-house photo booth — but Kim knows when to keep things classic. The New York-style crust, fired in a hulking copper woodfired oven at the dining room’s center, is chewy and char-free, and most pie toppings stay within the Mediterranean wheelhouse. Kim also has a slice joint, Hello Pizza, in Edina, and a third pizzeria is planned for later this year."
Lola is in some pretty amazing company, with legendary New York City-based DiFara and white-hot Brooklyn based Roberta's making the same list.
