Piecora's has been dishing up New York–style pizza at 14th and Madison for a couple of decades, and it's always good, but every once in a while they serve me a slice that seems like the best pizza I've ever had. During Piecora's exceedingly generous weekday happy hour (3–5:30 pm), a slice of cheese pizza and a PBR costs a mere $3. (Don't want beer? Make it two cheese slices for $3.) (Piecora's New York Pizza, 1401 E Madison St, 322-9411, 11:30 am–11 pm)
