Whether it’s getting together to celebrate an engagement, or just catching up with a girlfriend, Pazza Notte on 56th and 6th is my new girlfriend hangout. Here’s why (and thanks to my gal pal Wix for introducing me to this place!):
1). Two for one martinis- grab two drinks for the price of one afterÂ 5pm til close – so two drinks for $13. Just keep in mind you need to
order two of the same martinis. I don’t know what it is about martinis, but they make you feel so much classier in your late twenties.
2) Yummy food: My favorite item? A thin crust white pizza withÂ mushrooms and truffle oil. Bellissima! Â Another crowd pleaser? The truffle fries, and even the free bread that’s put on the table.
3). You can hear your friends talk:Â Want to catch up with friends and actuallyÂ hear what they have to say? You can do so at Pazza Notte since this place isn’t nearly as loud as a bar – and best of all, you’ll beÂ sitting the whole time. Wow, I’m old.
4). Not rushed: I’ve had people show up halfway through pizza andÂ martinis and order more food and drinks and the staff doesn’t get
annoyed that they aren’t turning tables. My tip – make a rezzy on Opentable.
5). Location: Yes, it is in midtown but makes a great central spot forÂ everyone to meet up after work or perfect before heading into Times
Square for a show. To me, Pazza Notte solves that problem of “I’m in midtown with no idea where to go.”
