Finding authentic food in New York City can prove to be a challenge at times but worth every second. While attending an Italian play at Cherry Lane Theater (38 Commerce Street, NY, New York) for an extra credit assignment this past week, a restaurant suggestion was made for us to check out Numero 28 (28 Carmine Street, NY, New York). The restaurant offered our group of 20+ accommodations instantly and greeted us with pure Italian hospitality. The authenticity of the restaurants energy complimented the menu perfectly and the pizza dishes that arrived at our tables completed the experience with pure satisfaction.
Our dishes included the Margherita plain, the S. Daniele and the Prosciutto with Arugula pizzas. A bite into either one of these slices was like taking a trip to Italy every time. The texture of the brick-oven slices added to the experience and when complimented with a Birra Moretti (Italian beer), the meal was complete. If the endless pizza and beer werent enough to satisfy the tummies of our group, the torta di cioccolate was absolutely did the job and was heavenly. The hint of what seemed to be coconut allowed our senses to go wild and visit a sense of euphoria.
Take the trip to Numero 28 Ristorante and enjoy your bite of Italy today!
