NY PD Pizza Philadelphia

When in New York we were big fans of the corner pizza joint. The slices are hot, huge and ready to go all hours!  We found a similar place in Center City Philadelphia.

Hearthstone Pizza Bistro in Arlington

I like to use for dinner coupons when I travel.  The site allows you to search by zip and then by distance.  I use the hotel zip code and search for with in a mile of that zip code for locations they offer.  This trip I purchased $15 off $30 at Hearthstone Pizza Bistro.

The restaurant is located a couple of blocks from the Radisson Reagan hotel.  We made plans to eat early as we had to be 6:30 in DC by the mall area.  It was around 5pm when we arrived for dinner. We were quickly seated and told the happy hour specials.  We settled on a started of mozzarella sticks and garlic knots.

I had the chicken parm which was very good!  Daughter ordered Chicken Alfredo and sister had the eggplant rollatini.  The portions were large and we had plenty to take back to the room for later.

Our food was good but nothing exceptional.  If we stayed in the area again I think I would try some place else just because there seemed to be some really outstanding restaurants in the area.  This is more towards average for over $60.

The service was quick and very friendly!

Fricano’s Pizza in Grand Haven

This unassuming old house is home to some of the best pizza in West Michigan.  Fricano’s!


The inside matches the outside…


The pizza only comes thin crust.  The topping choices are sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, green pepper or anchovy.  And the pizza only comes in one size, 12 inches!


You get paper plates to eat from and a fork.


Its my favorite pizza in Michigan.  Take some extra home, its even better cold the next day for lunch. Pepperoni pizza is $9.75, cheese only is $9.50, and everything but anchovy is $10.50.

They also have locations in Holland, Kalamazoo, Muskegon, and Comstock Park.

Fricano’s is open Monday to Saturday from 5pm to midnight. Closed on Sundays.  Cash or check only. They also offer carry out.

1400 Fulton St, Grand Haven, MI 49417

Jr. Bella’s Pizza and Pasta in Brooklyn


Jr. Bella’s Pizza and Pasta was where we ate the majority of our meals during our New York visit.  I was concerned that food was going to be a huge expense.  Not here!  The large hot portions were priced right!  Our friends recommended it so we carried out for lunch when we arrived.


Lunch was $7 and change for the two of us.  That is a pepperoni snack roll and some garlic rolls, add in an Arizona Watermelon drink and we were thrilled!


So we went back for dinner after visiting Times Square…



We ate in and I think our bill was around $11 total for the burger, Alfredo and drinks.

On our last night in town we took it to go and ate at a cute little bar patio by the apartment.  You cannot go wrong with $1 slices of pizza from 2-5pm and then they are $2 after that.
