Jostling for a photo-worthy view of the new Hello Kitty balloon on
Soho PizzaA Social Opening
Nestled in the West Village, Sotto 13 is the newest addition to a neighborhood known for noteworthy pizza, and at the opening reception, this Italian restaurant did not disappoint.
Despite the unassuming doorway, the cozy bar was packed with New York press munching on honey-and-ricotta crostini over high tables, and sipping chilled cocktails at the dark-wood bar. In back, the spacious split-level restaurant was filled with a lively crowd taking advantage of the rotating specials like artichoke pizza. The date-worthy spot lived up to its “Social Italian” philosophy, and if the opening reception was any indication, this new kid on the block will be sticking around.
