    Lombardi’s Takes a Couple Days Off to Show Some Lovin’ to Its Oven Nolita stalwart Lombardi’s 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 you’ve ever stood next to it while waiting for takeout, you know it’s a beast, so we’ll give them the benefit of the doubt that it takes two days to repair. In the meantime, we recommend you walk over to L’asso where the wood-fired brick oven is in full effect.

    L’asso Ropes in a Full Liquor LicenseWe didn’t think things could get any better at L’asso, the hipster’s go-to pizza place in Nolita. After all: Nutella pies! Marshmallow pies! But after over three years of tossing them into the wood-fired brick oven, L’asso finally has a liquor license. They’re adjusting from wine and beer slowly (last night our server didn’t know what a Dark and Stormy was, though it was on the menu), but once they come around, we’re confident there will never again be a reason to join the line at Lombardi’s.
