Ask anyone who’s dined with the Fairweather team, and they’ll tell you our number one cuisine of choice is Italian. I mean sushi and salads are good, too, here and there, but basically, the more pasta, pizza and bread, the better (because don’t we walk around enough?).
We recently dined at Olio e Piú, a charming Naples eatery located in Greenwich Village, and were we impressed. The atmosphere there is reason enough to go—you are transported into an garden-like oasis, whether you sit indoors or outdoors. As for the food, their menu, created by Chef Dominick Pepe (also the chef at Dominique Bistro) and his team, carries all of your favorite authentic Italian dishes, from Linguine all Astice Arrabbiata with lobster to a Diavola pizza with mozzarella, hot soppressata, olives and basil. Their salad options are also delicious—we opted for the Panzanella with kale, croutons, capers, chickpeas and veggies, because greens are important, too.
Washington Square Park is just a few blocks away, so you can continue you nature-filled afternoon there after a satisfying meal.
