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!

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Baby Doll Faces in the Chelsea Gallery District (And Elsewhere!)

I first started noticing the mysterious Pink Baby Doll Faces as they popped up here and there in my Instagram feed. When I realized there were quite a few scattered all over what is obviously NYC’s Chelsea Gallery District — because of course they are — Geoffrey and I went out on an Urban Art Safari.

A little bit of Googling revealed to me that the Pink Baby Doll Faces started showing up in Denver back in Spring of 2016. I couldn’t find any information on the artist. The origin of the Baby Doll Faces is truly a mystery!

They are fun to spot. Go exploring with friend and turn it into a game!

There are a few different faces, which appear to be made of cast Plaster of Paris and then painted pink (or sometimes violet). Some have hair and others do not.
