Rubirosa Features Destination-Worthy Vodka Pie In Nolita

[tw-divider]The Scoop[/tw-divider]

  • Rubirosa, a thin-crust Nolita pizza joint, is an Italian-American family-run restaurant with a recipe that dates back to 1960, from the original Joe and Pat’s Pizzeria in Staten Island. Their artisan pies, featuring several gluten-free options, are topped with fresh and high-quality ingredients
  • The journey for their vodka pie is definitely worth it — a light crunchy crust, loaded with creamy vodka sauce and fresh mozzarella, and always hot and fresh out of the oven. But that’s not all —the rest of the menu is equally satisfying with reinvented classics like their famed meatballs, ravioli, rice balls, hand-made pasta, and roasted octopus
  • The homey decor is perfect for date night or entertaining relatives, with an Italian-influenced wine and cocktail program. While trendy Nolita crowds pour into this tiny Mulberry Street location, Rubirosa continues to turn out the same decades-old thin-crust pie recipes that started it all

Yes, a whole vodka pie can be on the pricey side (small for $19 and large for $26) but there’s a loophole. You can order individual slices of vodka ($3) or the classic ($2.50) from 11:30am-5pm at the bar. Get your Rubirosa fix without breaking the bank
