A Tavola, the much-anticipated pizzeria on Vine Street, is now open for business. There are already reports on Twitter about drinks and such. It was supposed to be a soft opening, but it seems like the word spread like wildfire on Twitter.
A Tavola features wood-fired pizzas, craft cocktails, and charcuterie from charcutier Billy Draznik (who, I hear, makes some mean prosciutto). I’ll be interested in trying it in a few weeks once they’ve gotten the kinks worked out (but don’t be surprised if I preview it beforehand– I can’t resist wood-fired pizza).
The venture started as a monthly pizza happening at Take the Cake, but the event proved so popular that they decided to open a restaurant. The location, 1220 Vine, is in the prime Gateway Quarter area.
