Stop not eating pizza.

Look at you, you’re just not doing it right now.

We can’t stand idly by while it happens.

Just get to Rocky Slims, a breathtaking Italian spot for pizza and cocktails, now open in, wait for it, Kips Bay.

Post-work dates, post-work drinks, post-work pizzas and the occasional group-dinner situation. All occasions for which you’ll be coming here. (See the coppery, bricky beauty of the slideshow.) The reasons include the fact that the chef comes by way of the Pines and Roberta’s (lending some major cred to the pizza) and that there’s a Sazerac that’s somehow incorporated popcorn. That comes courtesy of a Little (and Middle) Branch vet, so not too shabby there, either.

But about the pizza: you’re looking at the kind of big old square, mortadella-topped Neapolitan pies that conjure images of portly little kids pressing their faces against windows to get a closer look. So, yes, in this example you’re a portly little kid. Own it.

If you’ve got something against sitting but still want to enjoy this pizza thing everyone’s talking about, there’s an attached slice shop with a walk-by window, which every single place should have.

Feel free to use that in any future campaign platforms.
