In the expert hands of Chef Tyler Herald, who spent time studying with Neapolitan chefs, the results are masterful: the base tender and slightly spotted, the edges puffed and golden, the cheese melted in a gooey pool. Once you've tasted one of Herald's creations, whether it's the Hamaker's Corner or a build- it-yourself "freestyle" selection, you'll be hard-pressed to go back to Domino's. Sit at the bar with a glass of something refreshing, and watch as your pizza is assembled, then flash cooked in front of you. Te oven, it should be said, is not just for cooking, it's also a conversation piece. If peace and quiet is your thing, take a seat in the coolly-appointed wine bar next door, where the entire menu is available in a slightly more subdued environment. Although the pizza is the main attraction, Napolese offers a handful of delicious sandwiches, using mostly locally-sourced ingredients, as well as cured meats from Te Smoking Goose, and, for the adventurous connoisseurs of nose-to-tail dining, roasted marrow bones. Wine lovers will enjoy the short but carefully-selected list of boutique Italian reds and whites, including some excellent offerings from Tuscany and Piedmont. For lovers of all things sweet, there's a constantly changing selection of vibrant, creamy Italian-style gelato to choose from. We strongly recommend the pistachio. sl Napolese Pizzeria and Wine Bar is located at 114 East 49th Street. For more information, visit napolesepizzeria.com or call 317.925.0765. slmag.net 91
