Pizza Place (Wynn) – The Esapanade Is Spectacular – Where’s The New York Pizza?

by Franklin on November 25, 2011

I want to say, for a regular pizza place, the interior was amazing.  The seating was very cafe like, located at the Wynn — everything was impeccable.  The couches, the flat screens, and cealn atmosphere was what attracted to me to this place — other than the fact that I was in the mood for pizza for breakfast.  The best part about this place is the outside seating.  Located right next to the water and waterfall, it was an impressive location for such a low profile restaurant.  Unfortunately, the praise stops there.

They are known for bringing New York style pizzas to Las Vegas.  Their large slices baked paper thin was what attracted me to this place.  I opted for the cheese pizza so that I can taste the pizza in its purest form.  Short and simple, I did not like it. The cheese was tasteless and the crust was uninspired.  The sauce wasn’t zesty — the pizza was monotone.  I certainly hope that New York pizza is not like this.

Their most famous item on the menu, the meatball sliders were not satisfying as well.  The “meatball” was more of a disk of sliced meat loaf.  It was mushy and creamy, not in a good way. It didn’t have that herb taste that is important in good Italian food.  The bread was over bearing to the tasteless meatball slice.  It needed cheese and maybe a better sauce.

Pizza Place didn’t disappoint — I guess I didn’t really have high expectations in the first place.  Well, maybe a little.  The food was just uninspiring.  Something is definitely missing in their food. They got their interior design and food philosophy right, but not the cuisine itself.  Maybe they can step away from trying to be more New York and be more Italian.  At any rate, pass on Pizza Place,  but do visit inside and check out their outside.
