Domenica in the Afternoon

In Italian, la merenda means “early snack” and refers to the custom of early evening socializing and gathering to share food and drink with family and friends. With summer in full swing, Domenica is offering patrons half-price thin-crust pizzas, cocktails, and wine from 3-6 pm, every weekday afternoon.

Located in the historic Roosevelt Hotel, Domenica offers a bountiful rustic menu that showcases the many flavors and toppings of the traditional Italian countryside. Classics such as the Margherita with Tomatoes, Basil, and Fresh Mozzarella satisfy any day, while more adventurous diners will be pleased to find the Pizza Enzo with Anchovies, Tomatoes, Garlic, and Mortadella, or the Cotechino with Pork Sausage, Scallions and Oven Dried Tomatoes. With meatballs being all the rage, Chef Alon Shaya has prepared a little something special: the Meatball Pizza of Spicy Lamb Meatballs with Fresh Ricotta Cheese and Mint.

So take an afternoon break and do as the Italians do... indulge in half-price specialties at Domenica every day of the week.
