A primavera pizza at Ortomare.
Ortomare opened a few weeks ago at 994 Columbus between 108th and 109th, replacing Italian restaurant Isola. Like its predecessor, Ortomare serves pizzas and pastas. The owners say they “moved to NYC from Rome to bring to our customers the authentic italian taste of homemade pizza and pasta.” The website includes menus.
Kosher restaurant Holy Schnitzel is now open at 654 Amsterdam Ave (corner of West 92nd). The meaty menu even includes “bacon,” always with quotes around it to keep it Kosher. There’s “Holy Sauce” too.
The Tang, a Chinese noodle that started with a location in the East Village, is opening a new location on the corner of 105th and Amsterdam. “With the second location opening soon on Upper West Side, The Tang is transforming into a fully fledged eatery bringing a greater variety of Chinese cuisine to New York City.” See the menu here. Thanks to above_96th for the tip and photo.
