Nolita stalwart Lombardis was closed yesterday and is closed again today for what a phone message says is oven maintenance and repair in case you had clam pies on the mind. The rebuilt coal oven dates back to 1905, and if youve ever stood next to it while waiting for takeout, you know its a beast, so well give them the benefit of the doubt that it takes two days to repair. In the meantime, we recommend you walk over to Lasso where the wood-fired brick oven is in full effect.
