A coworker of mine claims this place has the pizza that tastes the closest to NY style that he's had in LA. Now, I love NY style pizza, so I had to try.
It had a NY style look and the smell was amazing. The taste was one of the best I've had in LA, but I have to admit, I've had better. It actually reminded me of a place I used to ditch class and go to in high school, Marco Polo Pizza. In all fairness to The Coop, we did order the pizza whole, and usually I like pizza by the slice much better. Whenever we'd get Marco Polo by the whole too, it was never as good. I really think this calls for a pizza taste test soon, only problem is that the 2 restaurants are about 30 miles apart.
One thing I like about The Coop a lot is that their ingredients looked very fresh and high quality. I got the antipasto salad, which had good ingredients, but I just thought it tasted okay. I know people who swear by it, but as far as antipasto salad goes, the best one I've had was at Big Mama and Papa's, in Sherman Oaks.
