Michael and Jeniphur Pasquarello are soft-opening their new pizza joint, Bufad Pizza, tonight at 1240 Spring Garden Street. We first reported the project in August of last year, which is located nearby their other restaurants Prohibition Taproom and Cafe Lift.
So, what's a Bufad? "It's an American Italian slang term for someone who binges, which is l'abbuffata in Italian, and is here called a bufad," Pasquarello said. The space holds about 30 seats, and they'll be sourcing produce locally from places like Greensgrow Farms whenever possible. They're currently BYOB, and you better leave the plastic at home, since it's cash only for now. The big grand opening is set for January 30.
