We had tickets to Sleep No More on Saturday at 7:00 and so decided to get an early dinner at Jim Lahey’s Co., his pizza establishment down in in Chelsea. I love, love, love Sullivan Street Bakery (seriously, I write about it a lot) and have been wanting to try Co. for awhile. We met my friend Phil, who I’ve known since forever and who was all over this blog during my Whitney Internship days, and his girlfriend Jaclyn down for an early bird, old person dinner at 5:30.
We ordered a chopped liver appetizer, a pizza bianca appetizer with ricotta, and a margherita pizza. And it was all extremely yummy, especially the chopped liver, but the pizza wasn’t as good as the Neapolitan pies I’ve had at, say, Keste or Motorino. I mean, it was good, and it worked out well since we were so close to the theatre, but it isn’t my favorite Manhattan Neapolitan pie. In terms of Jim Lahey’s pizza, I prefer Sullivan Street’s little rectangular slices.
So after a quick dinner, Phil and Jaclyn walked us to the theatre. And then we bid our farewells and Jon and I got ready for Sleep No More…but you’ll have to wait until later to hear about that!
