No New Yorker needs an excuse to eat an entire pizza for lunch, but here’s a good one: In celebration of its 110th birthday, Lombardi’s will sell small Margarita pies to dine-in customers for a nickel. Why not just make it free? Because 5 cents is what pizza at Lombardi’s cost back in 1905.
The promotion runs from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. today — or until the restaurant runs out of dough. That means it’s time to ditch work and head over to Spring Street immediately. The lines will certainly be insanely long, but Prince Street Pizza and Rubirosa are both good contingency plans.
