The Nolita brick-oven pizzeria opens a 80-seat spin-off in the East Village. This larger location, decked out with two wood-fired ovens, offers a mostly organic menu of salads, pastas, entrées, and Roman and Neapolitan pizzas. In the front pizza pub, choose from 11 draft brews (River Horse Tripel Horse, Founders Red’s Rye PA) and pies topped with ingredients like roasted brussels sprouts and pancetta, or prosciutto cotto and mushrooms. Find hearty plates—such as sage-roasted quail with mashed green peas, and roasted duck breast served alongside pearl onions, baby carrots and blueberries—in the back dining room. Gluten-averse diners can dig into thin-crust pizzas or pastas made with hemp flour.
