A wood-baked pizza spot featuring pizzas with sourdough crust. They also have a great wine selection. As with any pizza place, we recommend trying the Margherita Pizza – theirs is simple and delicious. They also have a selection of small dishes (cheese plates, salads, antipasta) that change with the season.
Ops is a pizza spot in Bushwick, and it’s an excellent neighborhood hang. The pizza itself is good, but we were more impressed with the feeling of the place. Come by yourself for a solo meal at the bar, or bring some friends for fuel before a night out in Bushwick bars
Wood-fired pies with a sourdough crust are joined by a few simple openers (cheeses, salad and antipasti) at this Bushwick pizzeria, which also offers seasonal cocktails and a “Bud and amaro” combo. The converted garage space is welcoming with brick walls, tiled floors and marble-topped tables, and there’s no tipping.
The space at 346 Himrod Street is a former car garage that now offers seating for 45 guests. Its centerpiece is a mosaic-tiled oven that will be firing pizzas such as The Pops which comes with tomato, mozzarella, guanciale, and Pecorino. In addition to pizza, the team is serving menu options like braised lentils with toast, and caponata with bitter greens. Fadem and Tribouilloy will be splitting cooking duty, with Fadem’s focus solely on pizza and Tribouilloy running the rest of the menu
Ops, as the new spot is called, is helmed by Mike Fadem (who previously worked at Roman’s and Estela), Marie Tribouilloy (Buvette, the Pines), and Gavin Compton, who owns Variety Coffee next door. Fitting the team’s collective background, the vibe is casual; tips won’t be accepted; the room, a former garage, is agreeably rustic; the cocktails are seasonal; and the menu emphasizes shared plates, antipasti, and a rotating list of wood-baked sourdough pizza in varieties like the Pops (tomatoes, mozzarella, guanciale, onions, Pecorino), and the Rojo (mortadella, peppers, Crescenza cheese).
