Haute Eats: Garlic Pizza Bar

Garlic Pizza Bar is a new hip pizza bar in the famed Murray Hill neighborhood in New York City. Located on 34th st in the heart of the city, Garlic Pizza Bar has quickly earned a reputation of having some of the best pizza in New York and has become a locals favorite spot for great authentic Italian food and fabulous atmosphere with superb service.

Their secret to a great tasting pizza is their tradation. It starts with genuine, hand-tossed dough made from 100% Italian semolina wheat with no additives or preservatives. Next, the sauce with vine-ripened tomatoes which are hand-crushed, simmered and enhanced with a generations-old family recipe. Then, they add 100% pure, fresh mozzarella cheese that comes from a small local dairy farm.

As many restaurants expand, they begin to find faster, easier and cheaper ways to produce menu items but Garlic goes to great lengths to ensure the freshest ingredients possible. Many items are imported directly from Italy: aged balsamic vinegar, Grana Padano cheese, Prosciutto di Parma, aged Chianti, 100% organic olive oil, select spices. Garlic also makes its own dough and you will never find canned sauces or frozen vegetables in the kitchen.
