Next time you’re in New York walking around Times Square looking for good pizza please do yourself a favor and hit up John’s Pizzeria. John’s is my favorite spot in the area and a must stop whenever I’m in NY. John’s opened this location in 1997 in what was once the Gospel Tabernacle Church. Don’t expect to order a slice here John’s is strictly about the pie “No Slices” will be coming out of the brick ovens in this tourist joint. But what does come out of the ovens is heavenly…

So Mother’s Day came around and I had this big plan to take my mother to Ruth’s Chris for lunch so I made reservations at 1pm on that Sunday at The Banks but just one big ass problem! The Reds were in town and yea the game started at 1pm which meant not a parking spot anywhere downtown so after wasting time and gas looking for a place to park we decided to head over to J. Alexander’s. We pulled up and they had a 20 minute wait which wasn’t bad at all for Mother’s Day but we decided to skip the wait and eat in the bar area…
