Very, Very, Very Good Pizza

I know we're fans of pizza in Buttercupland and pasta, too, so for "V" we're visiting Vapiano in Greenwich Village. It's not exclusively a local restaurant, but it has the feel of a New York restaurant. The pizza and pasta are so good and it's a great place to spend an evening.

The perfect decor for a New York restaurant. 

The menu greets you on the sidewalk of New York 

I generally order pizza, but the pepper and ginger soup sounds so good and I'd like to try the Pasta al Melone, too.  There's also a great bar and seating in the front of the restaurant if you want to linger over an espresso. 

Greenwich Village corner. 

Greenwich Village begins below 14th St. in Manhattan. Parts of the Village follow the winding streets of an older Manhattan, before the grid plan -- numbered avenues and streets -- was instituted. I find it easy to get lost in some of these areas and even after living in New York for almost forty years there are times I still need to use a map.  

In just a little I'm off to Wilmington, Delaware for my college mini-reunion. I had a thought for tomorrow's "W," but I may just do a Wilmington shout-out for "W." The restaurant for tonight's dinner looked really cute ...

As always thanks for your visits and your comments. Wishes for a sunlit weekend!

Pizza is always good but it looks like that place has some kinds of pizza I've never had before. Enjoy your dinner out and your reunion. It's supposed to be a sunny weekend but today is is raining here.
