Sal and Mookie’s
New York Pizza and Ice Cream
565 Taylor Street
Why We Went: My husband, Blake, works around the corner at the Children’s of Mississippi Hospital. After picking him up from a half day at work, we wanted to eat lunch somewhere close by. When I found out that Sal and Mookie’s served New York Pizza, I was sold.
What We Had: Choosing what to order was difficult for both of us; Sal and Mookie’s has a huge menu full of items that sound absolutely delicious. After much debate, I finally decided to try their classic New York Pizza and Blake opted for the West End Muffuletta with sweet potato fries.
Something Special: When entering the restaurant, guests can see pizza dough being hand tossed in the kitchen through a large viewing window. It is definitely a nice touch!
Noteworthy: Sal and Mookie’s has an ice cream parlor in the back of the restaurant that is perfect for children as well as adults. In fact, Sal and Mookie’s has been named “best restaurant for families” four years in a row by Parents & Kids Magazine. With numerous flavors of ice cream, sundaes, milkshakes, splits, malts, and floats to choose from, their dessert possibilities are endless.
Best Part of the Meal: Although it was not Ray’s (a popular pizza place in New York City), my pizza was pretty good. The crust was especially flavorful!
Bonus: The “Pie Lounge” is Sal and Mookie’s bar. It is absolutely adorable. The restaurant serve regionally crafted beers, custom cocktails, and wine. The Pie Lounge is the designated area for picking up to go orders.
Tip: Receive 15% off to go orders every Wednesday from 5-9:30!
What Needs Improvement: The service was a little slow. We expected things to go quicker since the lunch rush was over and there were only a few customers in the restaurant.
Total Check Before Tip: $25.89
