Violet

OPENED98 DAYS AGO

Pizza Loves Emily Group launches a new restaurant in the East Village: Violet.

Unlike Detroit-style pizza spots EMILY and Emmy Squared, Violet focuses on grilled pizzas and seafood dishes.

The Spot:

After making Detroit’s pan pies popular in a city dedicated to the New York slice, chef Matt Hyland is ready to introduce us to the flavors of Rode Island’s famed Al Forno. It’s there, where grilled pizza was put on the map, where Hyland often ate while attending culinary school, and where he and Emily had their first date.

Violet - classic pizza

The Food:

Grilled on both sides and served with scissors for cutting, grilled pizzas come with toppings that are just as innovative. The menu changes with the seasons, so expect vegetable-driven options such as broccoli with pistachio pesto or squash with Sichuan oil, chèvre and thyme. While it might be tempting to visit Violet solely for pizza, shareable plates of seafood pack the menu too. Think grilled shrimp with Calabrian Sichuan butter, “fish & chicks” (cod and kale pakoras with panelle chips), and house-made pastas such as clam spaghetti.

Violet - pasta

The Drinks:

Besides beer and European wines, Violet offers a selection of cocktails such as the highly appropriate Princess Bay, a mix of violet flower-infused vodka with Prosecco, lemon and sugar.

The Damage:

Pizzas range between $10 and $22; seafood dishes cost no more than $22.

Violet - bone marrow

In a Nutshell:

Chef Matt Hyland is praised for his pizzas, filling all Emily locations with pizza-loving New Yorkers, and it will be interesting to see whether Violet becomes just as much of a hit.
