New York Pizza Department, on Highway 153 in Hixson, brings
a slice of New York to East Tennessee, complete with the dirty fireman's
jacket, the stenciled skyline and the sumptuous smells.
New Yorkers often find that outside the five boroughs it's
nigh impossible to find a proper slice of pizza, a fresh bagel or a good
Reuben. So they start their own restaurants. That's the story with Kurt and
Erik Cilen, two brothers from Long Island who co-founded the New York Pizza
"I kept trying to find New York pizza everywhere,"
said Kurt Cilen. "I went to Dayton, Chattanooga, Ringgold, Cleveland and
Atlanta, and there's just no New York pizza." Cilen says the restaurant
serves "authentic New York City cuisine," using recipes that are
passed down "from generation to generation." We look forward to
serving you the very best.
“Pizza so good it’s a
Home of the 24" pie!
