I am not a New Yorker at all. I am a Phillies fan, it just wouldn’t work. However, I do love New York style pizza and it is near impossible to find in DC. Don’t get me wrong, Jumbo Slice is a great place to grab a slice at 01:00, however it is important to have a pizza place that I can enjoy 12 hours later as well.
Fortunately for me, Wise Guys is around the corner and settles my New York pizza craving…which is more like an addiction now. They are open during the day, as well as after the clubs and bars close in the wee hours of the morning, cranking out hot pizzas to satisfy almost anyone’s palette. They are also very efficient and get you out the door quickly, part of the reason is what is on display is what you can order, nothing else unless you plan to order a whole pizza pie. My personal favorites are Buffalo Chicken and good old-fashioned plain pizza.
Update: There is now a location on George Washington University’s Foggy Bottom Campus!
