As is traditional after journal club, we once again ventured out, this time onto 2nd Ave, to have some New York Pizza. Portofino was our next choice spot (1091 2nd Avenue, New York, NY 10022).
I enjoyed this slice with broccoli, tomato, green peppers, onions, spinach, mushrooms, sauce and cheese. They slices are huge(!) and filled me up considerably. It was yummy! Not out-of-this-world but pretty good. Maybe with some sort of herb or spice it would have been tastier, like some basil leaves or dried oregano.
The place itself, atmosphere wise, was okay. We ate first and paid later, which was nice so that we didn’t have to touch money and then eat finger food. The menu also offers a lot more than pizza, such as pasta, burgers, sandwiches, soups, salads, etc. It’s good to know there’s a decent place around but since I want to try lots of different pizza, I have to say that I probably wouldn’t come here again. But it was good for this dinner! I think this slice came out to around $3.50.
