Rick Nichols accompanied Stephen Starr on his most recent pizza-eating research trip to New York and New Haven, CT.
It was a bit of a marathon: began at 9:41 in the morning and finished at 12:12 am that night.
They visited five places. Frank Pepe's in New Haven, Una Pizza Napoletana and Artichoke in Manhattan, and Franny's and Lucali's in Brooklyn. Lucali's appears to have been a favorite.
Starr enlisted his daughter to help.

One piece of news: they're still trying to come up with a name for the restaurant. (Pizza Select was an early contender.)
