John’s of Bleecker Street has been making NYC’s best pizza since first opened by Neapolitan Giovanni “John” Sasso in 1929. Its famed traditional coal-fired brick oven is the city’s oldest.
Rowing Blazers Creative Director and founder Jack Carlson has long been a fan: “John’s of Bleecker is my favorite pizza place in New York City. Everyone’s got their own opinion on this subject, but I think I’m in good company, including the many, many, (many) celebrities whose photographs adorn the wood-paneled walls, covered with generations of initials carved by New Yorkers and visitors. John’s is famous for having the oldest pizza oven in New York City, and for its strict ‘NO SLICES’ policy. As a regular, I always enjoy sitting in the main dining room and watching two neophytes come in and say, ‘Let me get two slices of —,’ only to be interrupted with the John’s motto: ‘No slices.’ It’s on the awning outside and basically everywhere you look. But you’re going to want a whole pie anyway. John’s is, among other accolades, also the most consistent pie in New York. Perhaps that’s the result of the incredible team which includes many that have been at John’s for decades. You can spot them, because they’re wearing John’s gear with vintage versions of the pizzeria’s logo. Two of my favorites are what we call the ‘Mario Brothers’ bricks logo, and (what else?) the ‘No Slices’ logo, which consists of a little embroidered pie and the words ‘NO SLICES’ in all-caps. We’ve collaborated with the amazing folks at John’s to recreate some of this vintage apparel with the original logos. They’re old-school and look almost bootleg. But they’re not. They're the real deal - just like John’s of Bleecker Street.”
