This may be a screamingly obvious choice, but if we’re styling for Pietro Nolita, the buzzy new “healthy Italian” cafe in Nolita, you’ve got to think pink. The entire restaurant from its brick exterior to quaint retro-cafe style interior is a vibrant bubblegum pink. Eating at Pietro Nolita is like dining in the Malibu Dreamhouse, a personal fantasy of ours.
Pietro Nolita’s vibe is fun and flippant; they sell merch that boldly states “Pink As F*ck.” They keep it playful and the typical neighborhood clientele is the funky fashion set. With that, we’re inspired by slightly off-beat wardrobe choices with a nod to eras past, like statement shag jackets, exaggerated bellbottoms, and playful pom pom accents.
While brunching, try the strong espresso in appropriately pink mugs, the panne ricotta with figs and honey, and the beautifully presented granola parfait. Pietro Nolita keeps it light; don’t feed the models after all. Read our full review of brunch at Pietro Nolita here.
