Rubirosa- New York City

Slowly ticking off all the favorite ZA in New York. I made a 1-day stop in NYC to volunteer at the famous “Slice Out Hunger” event run by my good friend Scott Wiener!

I had some time to kill and some pizza to consume before the event (of consuming more pizza) began. By the suggestion of another pizza lover/blogger, Miriam Weiskind of the Za Report, I stopped into Rubirosa.

I entered the warm and inviting hole-in-the-wall restaurant and sat at a high-top table, made from wooden slats. I couldn’t help from admiring the decor, filled with wood & metal accents, stamped crown molding, and old-timey tunes piped through the speakers.

I ordered a whole pie and managed to get through most of it on my own! The rest of the slices were consumed within a few hours, so they didn’t last much longer:)
