Looking to chow down on some Italian fare? A new spot has you covered. Located at 548 Fourth Ave. in Gowanus, the newcomer is called Pulia Ristorante.
This is the fifth location of the international chain of Apulian restaurant/cafes, which also has outposts in London, the Netherlands, Italy and Atlantic City. The chain was founded in 2012 with the goal of popularizing the cuisine from Italy’s Puglia region in the southeastern part of the country.
At the front of the house is an all-day, Italian-style espresso bar, serving up coffee, focaccia and bomboloni (Italian doughnuts) to go. Guests looking for a sit-down meal can grab a seat in the eatery’s casual dining room. On the menu, expect starters like meat and cheese boards and grilled octopus; pasta dishes like carbonara and orecchiette with Apulian turnip greens; mains like Apulian-style meatballs and lamb chops with red wine reduction; and desserts like tiramisu and pistachio pie. It also features a full bar.
