The Parlor: The Best Pizza Place You’ve Never Been


I’ll get straight to it: The Parlor (14 Cedar Street) is one of the best pizza places I’ve been to and you should plan a trip there as soon as possible.

Back in the summer of 2014, I was passing through Dobbs Ferry — which is a 45 minute drive north of NYC — with a friend. We were hungry and stumbled across The Parlor.

Sounds a lot like… Roberta’s, right? Or one of the dozens of other “hip” spots seemingly modeled after Roberta’s. Everyone is trying so hard to be Brooklyn these days and often times it’s not genuine. Luckily, at The Parlor they’ve put their own spin on what a “hip” pizzeria should be. And not only does it work, but it has flourished in a quaint town of 10,000 residents which is probably best known as the home for George Washington’s encampment during the Revolutionary War or — 200 years later — as the childhood home of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. If Zuck ever makes to The Parlor, I’m sure his review …read more
