Pulino's Bar and Pizzeria
New York, NY 10012
Village Voice's Description
Keith McNally's Bowery venture features two wood-burning ovens, whence come almost everything on the menu save the antipasti and charcuterie. Pizzas are the focus, ranging from a simple margherita and bianco to one with rock shrimp, speck, and fennel and another with beef meatballs and pickled chiles. The crusts, by design, crisp up very thin, cracker-like and flat without any puff or chew. Don't miss the antipasto of smoked sable and bottarga with celery and capers, a delicious, oceanic flavor-bomb.
Tips from foursquare
Skip the uninspired pizzas in favor of the meats: prosciutto di Parma; properly rustic crispy pork belly; or any of the housemade pâtés and terrines.
Try it for brunch: bloody marys, egg dishes and savory or dessert pizzas made with house-cured sausages and meats dominate the menu ($8-$16).
You’ll want pizzas for the table, a carafe of red wine. Now take a hard look at the list of specials. Lamb or goat on it? Get that, too.
Kids under 10 get a free individual-size pizza Monday to Friday from 5 to 6:30 p.m. when they dine with an adult ordering full-priced food.
New York pizzeria inspiration with a selection of pies 13-strong & some fundamental but conversation-canceling entrees like in-house butchered strip steak from Pat LaFrieda, & succulent sausage.
