I don’t think it’s any secret that the Q+DD girls love Pizza. I mean, we LOVE it. So you can imagine my delight when I finally got to try the new STG Trattoria last night! Brought to us by the nice folks at Bocado – it was LOVE at first bite. (Had to. Sorry I’m not sorry.)
First of all, it’s in a great spot. Though not visible from the road, it’s nestled in the strip where B.Braithwaite, Dry Bar, and Flywheel are located…good company indeed! AND only a stone’s throw from the glorious St. Regis Hotel – I’d say this little resto has some primo real estate!
Secondly, it is ADORABLE. The design is so fresh and clean. You walk through the wine cellar straight into the fresh and sleek interior like the world’s most amazing tunnel.
There are a few small tables, but most of the seating is a large U-shaped double-sided bar with this super cool riser for your pies! Bonus: your wine glass fits neatly underneath
They also have a pretty fantastic wine list with some very affordable vinos – which our server said was by design. (um, THANK YOU.) You can also choose your wine via their wine pairing app loaded onto an iPad at the table.
You had Greg at “iPad.” I loved watching him “help” my mom figure out how to use it:
Most importantly…the food was fantastic. We started with the spring pea, prociutto, mozzarella, and rosemary bruschetta and it was DELISH. Witness:
Then…onto the pies. We went with
You’d think that 2 huge pizzas would be way too much for 3 people… but you’d be wrong. We ate almost every last bite. In our defense, they were surprisingly light.
You guys, I really liked this place a lot and can see where I could easily become addicted. (and um, hello – Flywheel, then Drybar, then STG? Sounds a little TOO convenient.)
And although I’m done with first dates, it did occur to me that this would be an excellent first date spot – it’s lively and sleek yet causal enough – and pizza is always a crowd pleaser. Plus – you can dash over to the bar at the St. Reg for an après dinner nightcap… I’m just saying.
Two enthusiastic thumbs up for STG Trattoria. I WILL be back.
