New York Pizza Garden recently opened in a small strip mall just off of IN-37 and 126th Street in Fishers. Oddly enough, it is in the same strip mall that houses Big Apple Bagels. New York Pizza Garden has a small eat-in area, and they offer pizza-by-the-slice for those who want to grab a quick bite. I would recommend carry-out or delivery as better options though. They don’t just do pizza either, and their garden apparently also includes wings, various starters, calzones, gyros, pasta, and even burgers. I sampled the garlic knots from their starter menu, and I was impressed with them. I think some restaurants’ garlic knots are too dry, but these were moist and flavorful.
New York Pizza Garden has some good coupons on the back of their menu, and I took advantage of the one for a large cheese pizza for only $5.99. I felt that they were pretty generous with the quantity of cheese unlike some New York-style pizzerias, and I also found the cheese to pretty tasty. My one complaint would be that the pizza had a fairly large and doughy crust. It didn’t taste bad, but a smaller crust leaving more room for toppings or a dipping sauce for the crust would have made it better in my opinion. I didn’t have the highest expectations for New York Pizza Garden since it is just a small place in a little strip mall, but I would say that their food was actually slightly better than what I expected. I would not hesitate to order delivery or carry-out from them again if I want decent New York-style pizza without the New York-style price.
