Numero 28 Pizzeria Napoletana is one of the most popular brick-oven pizza joints in the city and luckily for all you Gossip Girls on the UES, they've just opened their newest location right in your backyard. Enjoy their signature 'za in three different size and two shapes (round and rectangular), and munch on a selection of appetizers and house made pastas, as well. The kitchen is run by veteran chef Ramon Duran (formerly of Gino of Capri) and the restaurant is currently developing a gluten free menu. Behind the move to include gluten free? The Biamonte family, who owns the pizzeria, recently had a family member diagnosed with Celiac Disease and now want to help those who have the condition. This menu will debut in a few weeks, available only at their Upper East Side location.
In addition, this new location will be the first with a full liquor license and will be serving up Italian cocktails like the Negroni and Americanos, as well as classics with an Italian twist: the Montenegroni (martini Rosso, Campari, Montenegro, orange juice) and the Bloody Mario (Roberto Cavalli vodka, tomato juice, olives, basil leaves, tabasco, black pepper, balsamic vinegar reduction). The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, as well as brunch on the weekends.
