Earlier this week, restaurateur Michael McConnell opened Lower East Side outposts of two of his popular Seattle-area projects, Via Tribunali and Caffe Vita. They sit right next door to each other at 122 and 124 Ludlow Street. Via Tribunali is a pizzeria serving Neapolitan-style pies baked at 1000 degrees in a brick oven that was built-on site from parts that were imported directly from Naples. The menu features 15 pizzas, all of which are made with locally-sourced ingredients, plus calzones, antipasti plates, and a full list of beer and wine.

Caffe Vita serves a number of classic Italian coffee beverages, made with the cafe's own house-roasted beans. The bar is equipped with a restored '70s-era La Marzocco espresso machine, believed to be one of only four left in operation in the world. Caffe Vita is open from 7 AM - 7 PM during the week, and from 8 AM - 8 PM on the weekends. Via Tribunali is currently only open for dinner, but lunch service will begin next week. Take a look around, and have a peek at the menu below.
