Finding Adrienne's Pizzabar, a restaurant located in the Financial District, is like finding a needle in a haystack. You definitely need a GPS to find this amazing place and, once you do, you will be blown away. First of all, the area where it is located, Stone Street, has a European feel with its cobblestones as well as multiple tables and benches installed in the street by the various restaurants. Except that the day we went, it was raining cats and dogs and only few courageous patrons dared to eat or grab a drink outside.
This place was recommended by our friend Caleb who told us that their pizza is worth the trip. So, I was excited. For sure, it was very crowded and we probably waited ten minutes to get a table (we were five people).
We decided to share two pizzas: one round (6 slices) and one rectangular (called the old fashioned that has 10 slices). Both are cooked in a brick oven that gives a nice char and crispness to the crust. The round one was the Romana, a red pie topped with prosciutto and arugula. This was a delicious pizza, not only because of the crust, but also because of the sublime sauce and the generous amount of prosciutto.
But my favorite was definitely the old fashioned pizza. We chose one with red sauce and picked pepperoni as toppings. Again, great crust and very good sauce. I just wished that there was more pepperoni on top, but still, I loved it.
With the pizza, I got a glass of Montepulciano wine:
Adrienne's Pizzabar is for sure a hidden gem in an area I rarely think about when I look for a dining option. Well, now I will!
Enjoy (I did)!
