I finally got to try Delancey in Ballard and I loved my experience.  What's not to enjoy?  I consumed my three favorite things-pepperoni pizza, a Cosmo cocktail and a chocolate chip cookie with sea salt. Delancey is a New York style pizza place in Ballard and is named after a street in New York.  The restaurant is owed by Molly Wizenberg, the writer of the popular food blog Orangette.

They open at five, so if you don't want to wait for a table you need to start waiting in line at a quarter to five.  We stood in line in the rain and waited and then we scored the very last table, lucky us.  Otherwise, the wait would have been an hour and a half, Delancey is that popular.  When I tasted the pizza, I understood why.  It was the perfect consistency of cheese and a ton of pepperoni.  The sauce was mild with just the right amount on the perfectly thin, charred crust. This pizza may just top my favorite pizza ever and I've eaten a fair amount.  My husband had a pizza with anchovies and he drank an Old Fashioned.  I drank a cosmopolitan with pomegranate juice which tasted delicious, too. 

To end the meal on a sweet note, my husband and I shared the Chocolate Chip Cookie with Grey Sea Salt.  This was also one of the best cookies of my life.  I loved the sea salt with the chocolate.  The center of the cookie was soft with melted chocolate and the outside nice and crisp.  The perfect cookie, really.
