We wanted to eat in TriBeCa and I looked up the best pizza place in the area: that is how I found Saluggi's. I like the decor, it's warm feel thanks to the exposed bricks, the checkered tablecloths, as well as the big street lamps in the middle of the dining room.
We sat at one of the booths and were unsure what to order, their menu featuring so many mouth watering dishes.
Our first pick was the mini-meatballs, that were swimming in a thick homemade tomato sauce, with a delightfully robust taste that was so good that I dipped a piece of soft bread in it. The meatballs were also delicious, not dry and tasty.
For the pizza, we hesitated between the red (tomato, mozzarella, parmesan, olive oil and fresh basil), the pink that is with vodka sauce, and the roasted eggplant one. We went for the latter. It was served with a nice amount of homemade mozzarella, parmesan, ricotta and lots of basil. I love eggplant and was thrilled to try it.
Everything on the pizza was good: the smokiness of the eggplant and the nice amount of cheese. Unfortunately, the crust, although deliciously crispy and charred, was missing some salt and if there is one dish were you should not add salt, it is pizza. Too bad, because the rest was good! It might have been an off day and to the question if I would go back, I would probably say yes, to confirm or not if it is the best pizza in the area or not.
