Rossopomodoro, the authentic Neapolitan pizzeria which has locations in Eataly New York and Chicago, will open its first United States standalone location in New York City’s West Village on Thursday, December 4.
The restaurant will be located at 18 Greenwich Avenue between West 13th and Jane Streets.
The 100-seat restaurant will serve authentic Neapolitan pizza prepared by traditionally trained pizzaioli, as well as a range of pastas and Southern Italian dishes. Ingredients will be sourced from Naples, Italy as well as local farms and purveyors in New York.
Rossopomodoro’s executive chef will be Kenneth Welch, a Union Square Café alum whose menu includes Spaghetto alla Chitarra with romanesco cauliflower and Auricchio Scorza Nera, Gnocchi alla Sorrentina — homemade gnocchi served with fresh tomato sauce — topped with provola cheese and baked in a ceramic dish, Linguine al Riccio with garlic, oil and sea urchin; and Rigatoni Genovese with short rib and onion ragu.
