We were invited to come and try out Plum Pizzeria & Bar, which opened last August. We were welcomed warmly by Alex Alexopolous Co-Owner, Executive Chef, and Wine Director. As you may have guessed from his name, he hails from Greece and so does his partner-in-pizza, Adonis Nikoloulis. So why Italian? Well, their experience working at Patsy's in The Village and their passion for Italian wine drew them towards taking what they knew about pizza and improving on it. They make everything they can fresh, in house, including all the sauces, mozzarella, pepperoni, and pasta.

We also loved all the wine pairings. For a casual little pizzeria, Plum has an impressive and extensive wine list, because Alex believes you don't have to pay $60+ dollars a plate to enjoy a good wine. This makes it the perfect spot to meet up with good company. It's casual and affordable, but without sacrificing on getting some really well prepared food and a magnificent glass of wine!
