Two of our absolute favorite things—fresh-from-the-oven pizza and Summer Fridays—are coming together over at Dante on MacDougal Street, as the Italian café-turned-cocktail bar welcomes one of the city's buzziest slice joints to sling 'za every Friday afternoon this season.

Fini Pizzathe Brooklyn-bred pizza spot that has locations in Williamsburg (305 Bedford Avenue), at Barclay’s Center and in Amagansett (237 Main Street) out on Long Island—will be collaborating with the folks behind the Greenwich Village bar-restaurant for a pizza aperitivo of sorts. Kicking off on Friday, June 7, the Summer Fridays series will feature $9 slices from the pizzeria from noon to 6pm (or while supplies last) every week this summer.

On the menu, you'll find tasty options like a classic cheese, peppy pepperoni, a square Sicilian (sprinkled with parmigiano and garlic breadcrumbs) and a white slice (fontina, parmigiano, mozzarella and brightening lemon). And you can pair Fini's excellent New York pizza with some Italian aperitivo cocktails from Dante, like a refreshing on-tap spritz or Negroni Bianca (Brooklyn Gin, Quinquina, Alessio Bianco, Carpano dry, lemon bitters and verjus). 

But if you’re not located in NYC, don’t fret: Dante will return the favor over Fourth of July weekend by popping up at Fini Pizza’s Amagansett location in the Hamptons and bringing their aperitivo sips with them. 

Both brands aren't new to cool collaborations: Dante frequently partners with local bars and restaurants, most recently taking over the iconic Bemelmans Bar for a weeklong cocktail residency at The Carlyle Hotel on the Upper East Side, and Fini Pizza opened its Williamsburg kitchen to Shukette chef Ayesha Nurdjaja in January of this year for a shakshuka-inspired bagel pop-up.
