The Best Bar Style Pizzas In NYC Are Coming From A Pop Up Pizza Shop That Technically Doesn’t Even Exist Yet


Oh the bar style pie. An under appreciated pizza style which is rarely found here in New York City. My favorite hails from Star Tavern in Orange, New Jersey followed closely by Colony Bar & Grill in Stamford, Connecticut. But last night I had some bar pies in the heart of Brooklyn which rival those. The location? Margot’s Pizza. A pop-up pizza shop that’s yet to launch, but will (possibly) be operating out of Pizza Loves Emily (919 Fulton Street) in Clinton Hill on Tuesday evenings when the restaurant is closed. Or not…

You see, Margot’s is the brainchild of Adam Kuban. If you don’t know Adam you should. He is the Dom DeMarco of pizza blogging, having founded Slice over a decade ago (did blogs even exist back then?). It’s very possible that he’s written more about pizza on the web than anyone. And since he stopped blogging for Slice on a daily basis a few years ago, he’s been focusing much of his energy on making pizza. And if you follow him on social media (@akuban on Twitter and Instagram) then you probably know that a bar pie is his style of choice (Adam has also been working at Paulie Gee’s and hopes to open an outpost in Portland, OR sometime in the near future).

Now is probably a good time to discuss what a bar pie actually is. Generally speaking a bar pie is a crispy, thin crust pie that is cooked in a gas fired oven and contains a simple combination of ingredients. Adam’s pies stay true to form except that at Pizza Loves Emily he happens to be cooking his pies in a wood fired oven. Each pie is rolled out, topped, and then placed in a black steel pan. …read more
