Easily one of the most famous pizza restaurants in the city, John's sits in the heart of the Theater District. It's located in a beautiful building that once housed a church. Make sure to look up at the domed ceiling.
The place caters to a theater-going crowd, and tends to be crowded just before and after shows. We went on a Thursday evening around 8:30. We were a large party but were seated almost immediately.
The menu offers a variety of Italian dishes. Garlic bread served as an appetizer was very pungent and topped with gooey mozarella. A salad "for two" was easily shared by four. I've always liked the pizza rolls, but was disappointed that this appetizer was not served until the entrees were on the table. Chicken parm was adequate but not outstanding -- the cheese on top were overly-browned, almost to the point of being burnt.
The specialty here is pizza. Thin crust, brick oven pizza. Served hot, crispy and delicious. They don't sell by the slice. You must buy the whole pie. Trust me, this is not a hardship. The waitstaff proudly wear tee shirts proclaiming: "No Slices".
This has been one of our "go-to" places for a long time. It never disappoints.
