|Nolita (North of Italy) | New York Style Pizza Joint in Manila|
By now, you've probably heard about this new pizza joint at Bonifacio High Street Central by Chef Cuit Kaufmann. I brought my husband there a few weeks back for our date night. He's a bit skeptic at first, but ever since I've started diligently documenting our food experiences, he gamely said yes. After all, a pizza night is hard to say no to, right?
We found Nolita on the 2nd floor of the left wing building, facing the amphitheater fountain (directly above of SLICE). I like the casual feel of the joint. The lighting features, glass window, and ceiling treatment gave the place an industrial feel, while the wooden picnic tables & benches set the rustic & homey feel. Quite a balance, alright.

We approached the counter to select our pizza, 16 variations in rotation to choose from - meaning, not all are available in a given time. Nevertheless, the selection that night is still tough to narrow down for 2 people. The slices are huge! (All from an extra-large 20-inch pie)

|Nolita Buffalo Chicken (Php250)|
It took a lot of convincing before my husband said yes to the white sauce based slice. After tasting it, he later agreed I made a good call. Foodie points for me! You see, though we both love pizza, my husband and I differ in our preferences on how we want it. Plain & simple thin crust for me, while he likes the traditional tomato based thick crust pizza w/ loads of toppings. Anyway, both pizza slices are yummy! Crust tastes like Tuscani, slightly charred but chewy on the inside.
|Nolita's style: "Put that fork down, EAT WITH YOUR HANDS", and "SHARE A TABLE. Make new friends."|
We also ordered a basket of beer-battered onion rings with Sriracha dip. We enjoyed the dip so much, we ordered another one (Php20)!

For our drinks, we had Gordon Biersh' Hefeweizen Beer (Php170) & Watermelonade Mojito (Php130), one of the house's specialty drinks. You can also order a "virgin" version if you're not up for "spiked" drinks.
Overall, my husband and I enjoyed our no-fuss chillax pizza night. Definitely, tagging Nolita as our new go-to place in Boni High Street Central. The Stovetop Mac & Cheese, Nolita Burger, the Italian Cannoli desert are something to look forward to in our next visit.
