Vic's Photo
It’s true pizza is as ubiquitous in New York these days as farm-to-table menus, but Vic’s manages to excel in both departments. Hillary Sterling does four or five pies, enough to make Vic’s a pizza destination but not enough to classify it as a pizzeria. Hers are distinguished by featherlight crusts with credible cornicione and significant blistering; on the textural scale, they fall somewhere between a cracker crust and la vera pizza napoletana, minus the soggy center. Whether it’s pizza, antipasti, salad, pasta, or a ricotta-stuffed borsa slicked in a mellifluous butter-lemon sauce, Sterling excels in big, bold, and brightly acidic flavors—reminiscent of trendsetters like April Bloomfield and Mario Batali. Even in its youth, Vic’s has preserved the neighborly spirit that infused Five Points. The service is attentive and friendly, the crowd is young and largely female, the tables are wide and well spaced, and the room is deliriously loud—made more so, perhaps, by the drinks list, heavy on barrel-aged cocktails and big ice.
