As a New Yorker, I consider pizza one of the main staples of my diet. It helps that I can get a slice on almost every corner at any hour of the day. There’s even a pizzeria in spitting distance from my front door. They know me by name. It would only make sense for me to own slice-sized plates to eat my favorite food off of. This set of four triangular stoneware plazzas (that’s the word I just made up for them) will impress the guests at your next pizza party. You can ditch those paper plates, which the grease just soaks through anyway. Serving pizza just got classier. [$40, Uncommon Goods]
For all the weird things about your grandmother’s house—the rampant use of doilies, the weird macaroni-like smell, the plastic-encased couch—there was a certain charm to it all. Channel that now with these kitschy “granny’s spaniels” ceramic plates from Urban Outfitters, which are just corny enough to be hip. With a hand-painted aesthetic, there’s no way to not feel warm and fuzzy inside as those cute puppy dogs stare up at you.
Ever thought of eating off of plates tagged with graffiti? Well, if they are anything like the set of china (above), you should! The “New York Delft” dinnerware collection is made of fine porcelain and has five pieces — a dinner plate, side plate, soup bowl, cup and saucer. (It’s $100 per set.)

Eating off of Andy Warhol’s face may not be the most appetizing idea, but we’re wild for these pop-tastic small plates bearing the visage of the eccentric Factory founder and his clever quips, like, “Art is what you can get away with.” For so cheap, we were amazed they aren’t throwaway paper plates!

In an effort to shed last winter’s extra weight before this winter starts, we’re trying to cut back on second and third servings of everything, which is about as hard a task as Sarah Palin giving up Moose burgers. We think these gorgeous dinner plates may help, though. Their patterns and colors are so awesome, we won’t be tempted to pile more food on them. Well, in theory, anyway.
