I have walked by New Amici probably thousands of times in the past ten or so years and I've never gone inside. Why? I don't know! It looks fine, it smells great. I guess I just always thought the awning was stupid. Whatever. Anyway, as it turns out, this place has a pretty good slice!
They cut it in half for me without my asking, which was very polite and I totally appreciated, even though I don't want my slice cut in half ever. It was a nice gesture nonetheless and I appreciated it. Anyway, this slice had good ratios, the cheese was of good enough quality, and the sauce was not especially noticable, but not offensive either. And the crust, it was really good! It was fluffy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, not too dense and had a perfect amount of salt. Which is in opposition to the rest of the slice which was, I must admit, a touch too salty. Over all, I liked this and I will certainly make a habit of stopping in here now and again when I come to the city to get discount brie from the East Village Cheese Shop.
