Single Room Occupancy: The Pizza Speakeasy You NEED To Know About

There are no two things that New Yorkers are more serious about than speakeasies and pizza, so hold on tight as we rock your world. Introducing SRO, a hidden pizza joint in the heart of the Bowery. A nod to the neighborhood's gritty past, SRO stands for Single Room Occupancy, the types of low-income hotels that lined the street back in the days of CBGB. We got an inside look (and taste!) of the new spot, a brainchild of world-champion pizzaiolo Giulio Adriani, who had formerly helmed Neapolitan pizzeria Forcella in the same location. With daily pairings chosen by Master Sommelier, Ariel Lacayo, and a unique tasting menu, SRO is definitely the hidden spot you should be searching for. So whisper the password and step behind the secret door as we tell you everything you need to know about NYC's coolest new culinary hot spot.
