Kesté is another restaurant on the list that is within walking distance from our office, so we decided to go here for lunch. It was an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria, and it has about 50 different pizzas on the menu, as well as salads and appetizers. It was definitely a difficult decision. We went with the Vegetariana, which has zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, artichokes, mushrooms and basil.
There isn’t really too much to say about this pizza, besides that it was good. These were some of our first Neapolitan pies of the quest, and they are probably up there still with our favorites, having been to a lot of them by now.
The location is great, too. The restuarant is right on Bleecker Street, across from John’s of Bleecker and up the street from Joe’s and Bleecker Street pizza. It took us about 10 minutes to walk there.
The restaurant itself is pretty tiny. We’ve heard that dinner can get crowded, but it was pretty empty when we showed up for lunch. But then, I think we got there right when it opened, so that wasn’t too surprising.
We will definitely be coming back here now that we have time to revisit our favorites. We need to try some of the other pies on the menu!
They also have delivery, if there are any interested New Yorkers out there.
