Speedy Romeo

Welcome to one of my favorite pizza spots in NYC! The LES version is Speedy Romeo is smaller and darker than it’s Brooklyn outpost. You’ll find plenty of bar seating in the casual eatery and a large open kitchen. The place has been painstakingly decorated; every lamp shade, piece of artwork, and wallpaper has a meaning and is hand selected by the owner.

The menu features Italian fare and wood-fired pizzas. I am only here for the pizzas people, cause they are all I need in life. The crust is charred and perfectly chewy. They load it up with toppings and the crust is hefty enough to support whatever their chefs pile on. The creativity on the kitchen really shines through in the Paul’s Boutique which is topped with Katz’s Deli pastrami, dijon béchamel, smoked red kraut, fontina, 1000 island dressing, and everything bagel crust. It’s everything my jew heart has every dreamed of, and so much more. An equally stunning example of the Speedy pies is The Ritz with grilled taylor ham, provel, farm egg, and Tabasco. It’s fatty and salty in the best way possible. I have eaten my way through the pizza menu and back again. I am always happy. Here’s what we had:
