My wife and I finally got to Papa's Tomato Pies. I say finally because we thought we had been there aboout 4 years ago, but we were actually at Championship Tomato Pies. Ed Levine, in his otherwise excellent book "Pizza" wrote about Papa's but gave the address as 931 Chambers Street and called it Papa's Championship Tomato Pies.
The real Papa's is at 804 Chambers St, he confused the two places. The pizza was OK, but not worth the drive to Trention (about an hour for us). And the bar smelled, well, a little like urine. We wondered what the hell Ed Levine was thinking.
Anyway, a few months ago I came across some blog or other where someone wrote aboout the error, which the first time I realized I had been to the wrong place.
So, off we went yesterday for lunch (The only day they open for lunch is Friday). It was worth the wait. Exellent! Great crust and sauce, better than I remembered from either DeLorenzo's. I agree with Harriet, above, it's the best in Town, just don't get confused and go to Championship. http://www.papastomatopies.com/
Just a heads up, unlike the other some of the other Tomato Pie places, they do not serve beer or wine, but you're welcome to bring your own (not that we did, we got there at 11:30 in the morning..).
