By the slice, that's how they sell most of them during the lunch hour in downtown Salem. This little pizza kitchen located on Liberty Street downtown sells the best pies in town. Calling yourself "Straight From New York" is a very bold statement on the west coast, but having been to the big apple I can say this is just like the real thing. Fold the crust in half and take a bite of the spicy pepperoni and the flavors will remind you of a big city neighborhood pizzaria. For around $3 you can get a large slice, hand tossed and made fresh all day. Dining inside, pull up a stool and sit at the bar in front of your favorite local newspaper. Get a table outside on a sunny day and enjoy the downtown atmosphere. If ever there was a restaurant downtown you'd want to survive forever this is it. And now "Straight From New York" is in the process of opening a new location on Commercial Street S next to Best Little Roadhouse. The tentative date for the expansion is August, hopefully all goes well. Salem is a town with many great local choices for pizza and Straight From New York is tops on my list.
