The original version of the popular pasta take-out franchise, Pepe Rosso hasn’t much changed its basic formula, nor has its West Village cousin, Pepe Verde. Expect cheap antipasti, insalate, pasta dishes and panini made predominantly for the take-out and delivery crowd—though half the fun of going to either Pepe branch is sitting at one of the few tables inside and watching the gregarious workers prepare orders, man the phones, and play grab-ass with customers and co-workers all at once in an animated frenzy. It’s like the Seinfeld soup Nazi, only they’re honest Italians who happen to be friendly and hands-y. And everything on the menu is under fifteen dollars.Recommended Dishes
