Wow. Bread Tribeca might be the first place we visited that actually had an “A” Department of Health grade displayed in their window. Not bad, considering that all restaurants in the city were originally supposed to have their grades posted eight months ago.

The pizza at Bread comes in ultra-thin, soft personal pies ($14), which are a little too chewy. We liked the fresh sauce, but it lacked pizzazz and the cheese was just okay. The leaves of basil were unfortunately too big to enjoy. The so-thin-you-can-roll-it-up texture might be fun for some, but we’d recommend Pulino’s or Spunto if you are in the mood for a thin-crust sit down restaurant. Or if it is just a matter of convenience, you’ll do better at the newly opened square-pie joint Da Mikele a block away (part of the Luzzo’s family).

Once upon a time, the pizza at Bread Tribeca was a novelty. While just about any pizza is good pizza, we couldn’t help thinking that the recipe needs an update, because at the moment it feels dated, a throwback to a decade ago when ringtones were exciting and Barnes & Noble stores stood strong throughout Manhattan.
