230 9th Avenue
New York, NY 10001
(212) 243-1105

On our last day in New York, we had to narrow down our restaurant choices. What do we really want to try? What can wait until our next visit? So after some discussion, Howard and I decided to have lunch at Co. (pronounced Company).

This is Jim Lahey's restaurant, author of My Pizza, in which we've had many successes. Based on his recipes, I think we hosted three do-it-yourself pizza parties this summer.

Here are the pies we ordered, above: the Boscaiola with tomato, mozzarella, pork sausage, mushroom, onion, and chili. Below, the Mushroom and Jalapeno Pie with béchamel, pecorino, gruyère, garlic confit, seasonal mushrooms, shaved jalapeno, and fresh dill.
What did we think? Make at home or eat out? First, their pizza dough is really good and it is rolled super thin - much thinner than we dare to stretch at home. Their topping combinations are great, but in the end, the bottom of the pies were too burnt for our liking. You can even see it in the photos, the edges are burnt to a crisp! Our hands were dusted with charcoal when we finished eating. With that said, we prefer making our own pizzas at home!
