Gruppo

186 Ave. B , Between 12th and 11th St.
New York , NY , United States http://www.gruppothincrust.com
(212) 995-2100

Even those not in the neighborhood don't mind the trek over to the East Village for the ultra-thin crust of Gruppo’s pies. A simple red awning with the restaurant’s name beckons those off Ave. B into the low-lit dining room with exposed brick walls and wooden tables, typical of a pizzeria. Somewhere between crunchy, cracker-thin, and chewy, the crust steals the show despite the fact that the toppings are incredibly fresh (think melting, round slices of mozzarella, garden roma tomatoes, and chopped basil).
