New York has rarely seen a pizzeria that looks anything like Dean’s Pizza on the Upper West Side. Built into the refurbished grand ballroom of an old hotel, it has high ceilings and ornate moldings that elevate the act of ingesting cheese and sausage. But the pizza itself is no surprise: Co-owned by Mirene Angelis and Nick Tsoulos, the place is from the city’s most productive pizza-making family, the extended Angelis-Tsoulos clan also behind Nick’s, in Forest Hills and the Upper East Side, Adrienne’s Pizza Bar in the financial district, and six Patsy’s locations around town.
