New York City: Co.

Who needs Naples when the world’s greatest pizza is currently baked at Co., on a windswept corner in Chelsea? Here, Jim Lahey, the fanatic behind Sullivan St Bakery, turns out jagged, faintly tangy, artfully blistered pies perfectly engineered to support their toppings without being soggy or bready or overly chewy—a feat that usually eludes even Italy’s best pizzaioli. The eternal wait at his high-design pizzeria (come early or late) pays off with artisanal salumi and pies like the Amalfi, pungent with green olives and anchovies; or the Santo, its charred radicchio cap cutting through the decadence of three cheeses. Dinner for two $55.
