With commodities on the rise, it’s a gift that we still have places to go for a $1 slice. The latest addition to New York’s $1 slice category is 2 Brothers Pizza on St Marks Place in the East Village. They even offer a deal that I haven’t seen since 1997: 2 slices and can of soda for $2.75. The “brothers” don’t stop there, they even offer an 18” pie for an unprecedented $8. I see this as an homage to pizza’s history as a peasant food. It may not be an exceptional slice, but even bad pizza is still a lot more fun than no pizza.
