Destination: Pizza Gruppo
Pizza in New York is tough stuff. The competition's fierce and everyone has their own opinions on what's good and where to go for what. If you're a thin crust, gourmet fan, check out Pizza Gruppo in the East Village.
You can go basic with marinara and fresh mozzarella/basil, or be adventurous and try one of their amazing signature pies. The "Shroom Town" is our favorite. Dripping in mushrooms of all kinds and sprinkled with truffle oil, it's simple to take down the whole pie in one sitting (although the $22 price tag makes it great for sharing). The "Fafandone" isn't bad either, with sweet Italian sausage and sun-dried tomatoes. Gruppo's a nice place for a weekday lunch, if you can swing it, and fun for dates as well. Delivery covers most of the neighborhood, but be warned and call ahead, because it can take a while to get those mushrooms just so.
