New York To Go began as the vision of a local North Dakota couple. In 2012 while in New York City, they visited a pizzeria that neither has ever forgotten. Even on full bellies and after an evening of appetizers and cocktails, they circled the block – she in heels and he in a suit – to have just one more slice at a hole-in-the wall pizzeria before returning to Bismarck the next day.
Seven years later, they still longed for pizza like they had in NYC. Hot. Fresh. And with a thin, foldable crust like they hadn’t found anywhere else. “It’s in the water,” the New York pizza maker’s said. And that’s what New York To Go is making . . . pizza with crust that has the flavor and texture like you find in the pizzerias of NYC. So with a vision, hard work, and good people by their sides, New York To Go became a reality.
But why stop with pizza? NYC has more than pizza to offer – like another one of the couple’s favorites – the gyro! Gyros are believed to have originated in Greece but the highly-seasoned beef and lamb pita sandwich we know today hit the American market in NYC in the early 1970s. Now you can get a gyro carved off the spit right here in Bismarck.
And who hasn’t heard about the NYC hotdog stands? They’re a staple on the streets of the big apple. We’ve got Nathan’s Famous hot dogs – made famous on Coney Island in 1916 – served on fresh steamed buns. Come in to New York To Go for a taste of New York City right here in Bismarck!
