This is not up for discussion. It’s an indisputable fact. The legendary Pepe’s Pizza of New Haven, CT is the best in the world. Google it. I’m not alone. It’s famous world wide.

Seriously it would be the only reason I can think of you’d want to even go to New Haven. Unless you got accepted at Yale, or your family is from there like mine. Connecticut is not like Washington, where you can brag about Pearl Jam, Macklemore, Jimi Hendrix, Boeing, Amazon, Starbucks, Microsoft.

Connecticut has Pepe’s Pizza. That’s it. Nothing else. Companies are fleeing Connecticut. The taxes are sky high. The economy stinks even in an economic boom! Connecticut can’t do anything right. Except make Pizza. Or as they say, Apizza!

If you are even within 500 miles of New Haven, it would be worth the trip. Lisa and I lived in Seattle for 25 years. And when we’d fly back east to see family, we would often go straight to Pepe’s. From the plane.

Even now, I’m grateful we’re only a 2 1/2 hour drive away from this place. Or I’d be pounding one down every week!

Last week Joe Bryant and I were in New York City and we did a pizza crawl around Manhattan. We had 3 very good slices of pizza. But they were not even close.

Send me an email only if you know of something else that is absolutely the best of its kind in the world. But it better not be pizza, because that has been decided.

With apologies to all those I love in Connecticut.
