Happy Hour at Naples 45
One of the biggest gripes I have about working in midtown are the insane prices for an average lunch. I've walked out of numerous different delis with a $13 sandwich in hand wondering what in the world just happened. It's hard to find any deals in this area but when I hold off just a little bit longer for lunch I head to Naples 45.
Every day at 2:00 Naples drops the price of slices to-go to just $1.75. This means ALL slices; pepperoni, mushroom and broccoli rabe, red pepper and sausage; whatever is leftover from the lunch rush gets the special price tag.
The pizza isn't life changing but it's damn good. Super thin crust with a slightly charred bottom and fresh ingredients. They do struggle a bit with consistency. I've had pieces so cheesy I could barely see the dough while others have had almost no toppings at all. However simply pointing to the exact slice I want from the display has worked beautifully and it's been easy street ever since.
