SRO, a Pizza Speakeasy, Opens on the Bowery

January 14, 2015 Updated: October 8, 2018

SRO stands for Singular Room Occupancy, and it is where world-champion pizzaiolo Giulio Adriani exercises his trade. You can try his pizza—as long as you can find the door. For the entrance to this 24-person spot on the Bowery is through a hidden door.

“People love hidden gems,” Adriani said in a press release. “And I hope they’ll love discovering SRO.”

OK, so it is not so secret: Find the door inside Espoleta Tapas & Wine Bar. Outside of the classic Margherita and the fried Montanara, pizzas will change daily. Pizzas include Espoleta (chorizo, shishito peppers, Sungold tomatoes, fresh mozzarella); SRO (merguez, stracchino, caramelized onions); and Uptown (lardo, burrata, truffle, leeks.)

Food and beverage pairings are curated by Ariel Lacayo, who is an award-winning master sommelier.
