I love my neighborhood. It has many great places to eat, and I just found another gem at 18th Street and 2nd Avenue called Posto Thin Crust Pizza.
Posto is a no-frills place founded by Antonio Gomez with friend and business partner Jonathan Tweedy. The restaurant quickly grew a cult-like following and became renowned for its ultra-thin crust pizza. Posto is a relaxed, neighborhood establishment with a high-quality menu that includes pizzas, pasta, specialty sandwiches, salads, desserts, and a carefully curated beer and wine list. Its mission is to offer fresh food, high quality, consistently excellent, and affordable, and yes, it does check all those boxes!
Here are the outside and inside views of Posto.
What to order?
I ordered the kale and manchego salad with delicately seasoned grilled, sliced chicken breast. I researched manchego cheese, discovering that it is produced in the La Mancha region of Spain (home to Don Quixote) and is made from pasteurized sheep’s milk. I had it placed on the side with the dressing and was pleasantly surprised that its taste resembled parmesan without the tang; truly fabulous!
Here are the caesar salad and plain thin-crust pizza.
She liked the salad, and I had a slice of the delicious pizza. Such a delightful delicate crust added to an enjoyable dining experience.
If you’re in the Gramercy Park area looking for a great salad or deliciously thin crust pizza, check out Posto, it was fresh, tasty, and affordable.
