    I don’t think there are many options... Mozzarella quality has gone down since the last ownership change (or two?). Calabria is RIP. Maybe Koshertown cafe, though their menu is limited.

    Artisan bakehouse is pretty good
    Arguing on DDF is like getting arrested, everything you say can and will be used against you, so just remain silent!!

    $20 for 12" pie seems pricey

    Good point, though ime their food is inconsistent (though it was never “bad” IME, just not consistent).

    Never been there. But of the places I've been, Kingston Kosher felafel is by far the best.
    No clue how they get enough business to stay afloat, though.

    They should put up a teudah with a picture of fries instead of a hechsher
