Nick's Restaurant Review

: This Upper East Side pizzeria is proving Queens residents right, and skeptical Manhattanite pie hounds can take the taste test for themselves. Nick's serves lightly charred thin crust topped with freshly made tomato sauce, quality mozzarella, and a host of add-ons, including dried tomatoes, sausage, spinach and mushrooms. This being Manhattan, the menu also includes a range of entrées such as eggplant Parmigiana and orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe. Thankfully, the Manhattan branch also carries Nick's equally famous creamy cannoli.
