This Nolita hotspot from the team behind Charlie Bird has been described as a brick-oven pizza restaurant, however, should not be labeled so simply.
Incredibly succulent and well-seasoned meat falls right off the bone at Pasquale Jones, and servings of potatoes, bitter greens, and lemon wedges come out perfectly. The most expensive item on the menu is $48 and is a dish that serves plenty of food for two people.
Pasquale Jones is a small restaurant and is only available for walk-ins, so arrival earlier or late-night is the window to secure a table, there is no bar per se so sipping on a cocktail whilst you wait to be seated is not an option here.
The warmth of the two brick ovens keeps the interior toasty on a winter day. The open-kitchen plan creates an inviting ambiance that is great for a date or more lively dinner. They also dabble in beer-making with their own Pasquale Jones Kolsch, alongside a thoughtful wine list. There are two large tables on the left as you enter that allows for groups of six to comfortably sit and there is availability to station oneself at the bar where you can drink, and eat.
Something to keep in mind: Pasquale Jones has joined the ranks of the non-tipping restaurants in NYC. “Hospitality is included” meaning all menu item pricing is inclusive of gratuity.
