We try to eat dinner at Johns every time we come to New York. It is one of our favorites. Atmosphere is really cool, pizza is great and the service has always been really good. We have 2 kids (ages 8 & 10) and they absolutely love it as well. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for great spot... More

Been here a couple of times... The pizza's are fantastic. If you like thin crust and gourmet toppings, you won't be disappointed. I like a little spicy Pizza so I ordered spicy Italian Salami as the topping. Furthermore, the atmosphere is great. Looks like an old church or theatre.

I've walked by this place a million times. Finally met some friends for lunch here. It was great and what a great space inside - it used to be an old church. You'd never know it from the outside which makes it even cooler. Service was great, as well. We were here on a Monday, for lunch.

Stopped in when craving a pizza one afternoon and it hit the spot. Generous sized pizza and absolutely delicious. The building itself is worth a trip, a really cool space.

We were looking for New York style pizza in a convenient location from our Midtown hotel. John's seemed to fit the bill. We enjoyed the interesting interior (a former cathedral) and the pizza was quite good. Fortunately we were here mid-afternoon when it wasn't too busy, as the service was fair at best. We had better pizza in Greenwich Village,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
