Número 28 – Multiple Locations, NYC

by PizzaSnobo on September 29, 2011


If you’re going to start a mini chain of restaurants, wouldn’t it be great if they were all in downtown Manhattan? That’s what Número 28 has done and PizzaSnobo can really get behind it. With locations in the East Village, West Village and Soho, Número 28 is doing Neapolitan pizza both by the inch and the familiar round personal pie style, as well as Roman style down in Soho.

This review focuses on the Neapolitan, which we had at the Carmine Street location.The regular Margherita pie ($12) gets bumped up five dollars if you want bufala, which is what we splurged for. The rich cheese was plentiful and sliced thin. The sauce was in Goldie Locks territory – not too sweet and not too tart – and there was plenty of it. The crust is on the floppy side, though we liked the crust on the round personal pie better than the 20” version. The crust was also good once the pizza got cold. Toppings like spicy peperoni, cherry tomatoes and artichokes all looked great.

With its inviting atmosphere, very good pizzas and nice variety of toppings, Número 28 is a good standby for all sorts of occasions.
