For those of you who maybe just parted with a fast $250 to secure your place at the table for the Vetri / Morimoto collaboration dinner, here’s something that might take the sting away–a nice, cheap dinner at Zavino.

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of their Midtown Village location, all of the Zavino restaurants are going to be offering $5 pizzas and $5 glasses of wine on Monday, January 12, from 11am to close. Any of the pizzas on chef Carlos Aparicio‘s menu are fair game, and the house will be offering two reds and two whites at $5 a glass.

They’ve had a few weeks to get their legs under them, but now the crew at the new Zavino at Chestnut Square is ramping things up with longer hours and a new happy hour program.

First, the food and booze. Happy Hour deals will be constantly changing depending on the whims of chef Carlos Aparicio, his guys on the line and the staff behind the bar. But from 4:30 to 6:30 every day, look for things like “Bartender’s Choice” cocktails, $3 beers, $4 wines by the glass, $7 margherita pizzas, a variety of croquets, cheeses and veggies, and a $5 plate of meatballs that I kinda want right now.




In terms of service, Zavino is now offering lunch and dinner every day.

As always, follow Zavino on Twitter or like them on Facebook in order to stay in the loop on daily specials and whatnot.
