"Hip" is the word that comes first to mind at Slyce, the down side being that it can be noisy and a little frenetic. As per the pizza, there are some shock-value pies: A Coney Island topped with chili and sliced Sabrett dogs; the super-spicy Sunburn with chilies and hot sausage and a side of Sriracha. But the bulk of the pizza menu are thoughtful combinations of ingredients set atop a thin-but-chewy New York-style crust (you can also craft your own pie). Top honors go to the Pear A Dice with sliced pear, Gorgonzola and sliced prosciutto along with a mantle of mozzarella. Also no red sauce, the Piece Out Whitey brings a very minimalist but lush mozzarella and fontina pie with a garlic wallop (add ricotta). Now add a range of savvy appetizers and a full bar, and you've got a different kind of pizzeria.
