Pizza makes every gathering better. For your next friends’ outing, point your crowd in the direction of Spunto and some of New York’s tastiest pies. Walk in to find a casual, friendly scene. There’s room aplenty for group dining, as the restaurant stretches all the way from Carmine Street to Seventh Avenue South. Show a little early so you can relax at the bar with a crisp Sixpoint draft. When your crowd arrives, settle into a cozy booth and prepare to feast. There are a dozen salads sized just right for sharing. Mix and match with super-fresh arugula and bocconcini, or a Tri Colori tricked out with roasted pears and Gorgonzola dressing. The pizza’s about as far from deep dish as it gets, as Spunto specializes in making the thinnest of crusts, so you won’t get all loaded down with dough. (Jimmy Fallon famously got himself eighty-sixed for a comparison to crackers, but you’ll find the crusts here have tons of character.) Your meat-loving friends can bite down on pepperoni and two kinds of sausage, while vegetarians have their way with the truffle oil and triple-mushroom Shroomtown pie. If you’ve finished nursing that pint, get a pitcher for the table. After all, pizza and beer go together like Spunto and good times.
