This week’s Pink Thing happens to be related to another recent Pink Thing, but that is kind of a coincidence. After stumbling upon Pietro Nolita, the charming pink restaurant featured in This Post, I started following them on Instagram and quickly discovered their shop, Pink As Fuck Dot Com, where they sell this awesome coffee mug! Sells for $25 plus tax and shipping. So worth it!
I’ve been hearing about Pietro Nolita since it opened (a few years ago at this point), because it is an Italian Restaurant downtown that’s Pink on the exterior and interior. I’ve always meant to visit, of course — because: Pink Restaurant — but it’s not in my neighborhood and I’m lazy, so I’ve never see the pinkness before in person, until now.
The fact that Pietro Nolita had completely fallen off my radar made it that much sweeter to literally stumble upon it last week, as I walked home to the East Village from a doctor’s appointment in the Financial District and decided to shake up my route. Isn’t it adorable? Who wouldn’t want stop in and check it out?
I love the details they put into it, including flower boxes bursting with Pink Silk Chrysanthemums.
Popular street artist Hektad has even contributed a flourish of his signature heart art.
And you might remember these little guys from a previous post! Ah, the Pinkness.
Located at 174 Elizabeth Street, Pietro Nolito is open during lockdown from Thursday through Sunday, Noon to 8 PM for Take Out and Delivery. I Promise that once it Reopens I Will Eat There and File a Full Report!
