3 Clinton Street (between Houston & Stanton)
A piada is a grilled Italian sandwich which is on flat bread and popular in the Emillio-Romana region of Italy. Unlike a panini which is much more stuffed, a piada is thinner and pretty tasty!
I had an Amarcord piada which is Prosciutto di Parma, Mozzarella & Arugula. It was interesting and a learning experience watching the guy make this. The sandwich may seem pricey at $7.15 but it is the quality of the ingredients that make it all the special. Clean and brightly lit, the white decor makes this place feel modern and the small tables and chairs up front inviting.
This little sandwich shop is located in the Lower East Side and just a few steps in on Clinton Street.
Master Card, Visa, and American Express are accepted.
