Topics I've Started

Keste Pizza, New York

29 August 2013 - 05:50 AM

This place was new to me and I searched and didn't see anything on it in the forum.  Pizza place called Keste in New York City literally right across the street from Risotteria on Bleecker St.  Unlike Risotteria, it's only pizza and salads.  

 

Here's what I'd say: The pizza was outstanding.  Astonishingly good.  The service ... not so much.  First off, there were people waiting outside so just my fiance went in to see about giving a name.  He was ignored while they seated like four tables.  Fine, better that they get people seated and then take names.  Then the host came out, walked past my fiance standing by the door, and looked at me and our friend and asked if we wanted to put our names on the list.  I have no idea what it was about, but it was weird.

 

More seriously, our table ordered two pizzas, one with gluten and one without.  Two pizzas arrived, looking exactly the same, so I asked.  And yes, they had brought us two pizzas with gluten, and only my asking prevented me from getting glutened.  Not only that, while they brought a replacement fairly quickly, that was the only response.  It didn't feel like they saw it as a big issue.  So the quality of that pizza makes me want to go back, but you definitely want to be vigilant.
