Begun as a labor of love, Delancey is the most loved pizza place in town. At this cozy, neighborhood charmer, chef Brandon Pettit churns out toothsome pizzas and roast radicchio from the wood-fire oven. Salads are plucked from the farmers market. Finish with a salted chocolate chip cookie, inspired by Pettit’s wife, food writer Molly Wizenberg — who just penned a delightful book about Delancey. Whittle away the wait with a hand-crafted cocktail at adjoining bar, Essex.
