Father-and-son pizzaiolos Michael and Jason Brunetti debut a West Village outpost of their Westhampton pie shop.
Bringing Westhampton to the West Village, this 65-seat slice-slinger is the first NYC outpost of Michael and Jason Brunetti’s cult Long Island pie shop, opening September 30th. Trained under Motorino’s Mathieu Palombino, the father-son team pulls 20 pizza varieties from the Ferrara brick oven, including Neapolitan classics (marinara, Margherita) and newfangled rounds like the funghi e cipolla (shiitake mushrooms, honey-truffle oil and goat cheese). The Manhattan menu also includes Amalfi-inspired small plates: Italian tuna with capers and cannellini beans, and baby octopus stewed with tomatoes. Snag a stool at the white marble bar overlooking the blistering hearth for craft beers (Sixpoint’s the Crisp, Sesonette) and Italian wine on tap. See the pizza menu below. 626 Hudson St between Horatio and Jane Sts (212-255-5699)
