MAGIC DAVID PIZZA

A year ago I took to hanging out at MAGIC DAVID PIZZA, a tiny Sunset Park spot that does an amazing nonna-style slice, made with fresh mozzarella and good plum tomatoes. It also drips an excellent, hyper-concentrated espresso, an unusual accomplishment in that neighborhood. Knock it back while contemplating the giant dried stingray on the wall.
