New York Delight
310 S Thomas St
Pomona lacks options for good pizza. I do like Valentino's, that I reviewed in 2010. Otherwise you're limited to the chains. So, I was really happy when I heard about New York Delight!
New York Delight is tucked away in the Arts District section of downtown Pomona. There are nightclubs and a middle and high school nearby.
The building is long and narrow with a few tables with bench seating along one wall and a lone table along the other wall. The walls are pretty barren expect for a few framed photos of New York City.
I understand they started as a sandwich shop and later added New York style thin crust pizza to their menu.
Large mushroom pizza, $6.53 tax included. The first thing you notice is the great crust-lightly cripsy with a nice chewy texture, and very thin. While the amount of mushrooms was lacking, the mushrooms were fresh and tasty. The cheese was lightly piled, they could add a little more, but they use a good quality cheese! This is a very good example of New York style thin crust pizza! They also have a $20 specialty pizza that is about 18 or 20 inches and piled high with toppings.
Service is good. The people are nice and helpful. Be sure to call before dropping in. When I first found out about New York Delight, they were only open from about 11am to 2pm Mon-Fri. On Friday and Saturday, they would reopen at about 8pm and stay open to about 4am, yes to serve the late night party people!
I would go back to New York Delight anytime. This is not only the best pizza in Pomona, but is the best New York style thin crust pizza, in the Inland Valley. Yes, they beat out the old standard, San Biagio's Pizza!!!
