Profile

One part Neapolitan trattoria and one part Asian cocktail lounge, this candlelit bi-level space features cozy booths, a marble-top bar, and a fictional origin story concerning an Italian cobbler and a Chinese circus man who hatched an idea for the place in the twenties. The menu is mostly made up of pizzas and Southern Italian dishes, with the exception of a calzone stuffed with bok choy and Peking duck. Smaller plates tease hints of Asian inspiration—shiitake mushrooms here or shishito peppers there—but the most successful dishes are wholeheartedly from Italian roots. Handmade squid-ink pasta is swathed in a nice creamy sauce, and Italian sausage and guanciale are fresh and made locally. Thin-crust pizzas cooked in a wood-burning oven are sized to share. Crispy fried artichokes are classic and crunchy starters, and San Marzano tomatoes dot almost every pizza. The minimalistic cocktail list is filled with hits: a Venetian Spritz—aperol, white wine, and club soda—makes for a refreshing addition to a meal. But many might come to Louie and Chan for the hyped-up downstairs lounge and club. With two full bars and a D.J. booth, 303 is ripe for the Lower East Side dance scene.
