New Year, New Vegetarian and Vegan Pizza at Adelina’s

Adelina’s is changing up their pizza this year.

A longtime Greenpoint Italian restaurant is making some changes to their menu to start the new year after transitioning the restaurant to a 100 percent plant-based menu.

Il Funghetto pizza (sauce, mozzarella, cremini mushroom & fresh parsley)

Adelina’s (159 Greenpoint Ave.) transitioned to a fully vegetarian and vegan menu last year and as of January 1st, the restaurant has stopped making their usual pizza fritta (fried pizza) and is now focused on a style of pizza known as pinsa Romana made with fermented dough.

La Terrosa pizza (NUMU vegan mozzarella, sunchoke cream, artichoke heart, fingerling potato & fresh rosemary)

This style of pizza is light in gluten with a crust that is crispy on the outside, fluffy in the middle and “much more digestible than a standard pizza due to the minimum 48 hour fermentation and very high hydration,” according to Adelina’s owner Toby Buggiani.

Pizza offerings on the new menu are split between vegan and vegetarian options and range in price from $11 for the la Marinara (double sauce, fried caper & oregano) to $17 for the la Burrata pizza (sauce, topped with post oven pesto, stracciatella & arugula).

Look out for their rotating list of natural wines and their “Meet the Wine Maker” sessions, usually held on Wednesday nights.

Adelina’s hours are 5:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. on weekdays and Sunday, (closed on Tuesday) from 5:30 p.m.–11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Inside Adelina’s: Street Art, Tapped Wine, and Vegan Cuisine

Toby Buggiani describes his 4-year-old wine bar and restaurant as “a tiny, quirky space” where he gets elbow-deep in pizza dough and fresh vegetables on the daily. It’s a quiet little nook in Greenpoint (159 Greenpoint Avenue) where the things he loves can thrive: inventive art, plant-based cuisine, natural wine, and an ethos rooted in simplicity.

Adelina’s is a fairly young restaurant, but its story began back in the 1980s between the street art scene in Greenwich village and a humble kitchen outside of Tuscany.

“Most of what we do here is rooted in my history and what I believe in. Art has a lot to do with that, actually,” Buggiani explains. “I was born in Italy, but we moved to New York City in the late 1970s for my father’s work as a painter, sculptor, and performance artist. I pretty much grew up in Greenwich village during the late 80s and early 90s surrounded by a lot of artists and musicians, friends of my parents and so on.” Continue reading

Lessons in Vegan Wine at Adelina’s

Vegan Chianti at Adelina's

Call me ignorant but, until recently, I wasn’t remotely aware that most wine production is largely un-vegan.

This changed when I paid a visit to Adelina’s (159 Greenpoint Ave.) to sample a glass from their newest wine casks and Toby, the lovely owner, told me that their new Chianti is not only produced in an organic way but it is also vegan, to which I expressed some surprise. Aren’t all wines vegan? Isn’t that the joy of grapes? Apparently not. But given the way that vegan friends of mine happily knock back any wine available, I had a hunch that they weren’t in on this fact either. Continue reading
