          Intrepid - you seem to know a lot about this one - so do you know what day they are closed? Thanks!

          1. re: wincountrygirl

            hi--no not sure when they are closed sorry..right now they are in soft launch mode, so limited menu salads, apps, pasatas, pizza, burgers etc great design to this new spot btw

            1. re: intrepid

              That's what I've heard. That works for me. I love wood fired pizza!! We are very happy to have Joe at the helm of another restaurant!

            2. re: wincountrygirl

              7 days a week.

              Ate there last night. Food was pretty good although I am no connoisseur of wood-fired pizzas... The menu was all over the place. Everything from fish tacos to a raw tuna app. to beef brisket sloppy joes to your usual Italian items like pizzas, fried calamari and pastas.

              Price points pretty reasonable IMO. You could get out with an app, pizza and a glass of wine for $21.

              Pizzas $7 -14
              Sandwiches $10 - $14
              Salads $8 - $11
              Pastas $14 -19
              Apps $8 - $13
              Wines BTG - $6 - $10

              Not sure if that was their soft opening menu or if a more extensive menu is coming out...

              Desserts weren't available yet but they said they would be serving a Nutella pizza and milk shakes with Mr. Shane's ice cream.

              Service was a little uneven, but it was only their second night, so no big deal for me. Owners were there walking around. Dining room was pretty full though. As we were leaving at 8:30 PM, a group of about 15 people were going in.

              Would go back.

                Thanks wagamamababy! Planning to go during the week this week.

                1. re: wagamamababy

                  the menu you ordered from is a temporary soft opening menu only..they willl roll out the full menu in near future

                      1. re: intrepid

                        I knew you had some inside scoop!!! I am really glad Joe opened another place. We've been fans since Strega.

                        1. re: wincountrygirl

                          strega was my all time fave neighboord place

                          1. re: intrepid

                            Mine too. It had a great vibe, comfortable atmosphere and great food , Joe behind the bar and Frank in the kitchen. Loved it.

                            1. re: wincountrygirl

                              Gee, if Strega was so good, how come it went belly-up? On another thread, it was said that only bad places go out...

                              1. re: menton1

                                They didn't go "belly up." They sold and opened another place - 121.

                                1. re: menton1

                                  the original owners bueti sold stega, it did not go belly up they went on to other ventures...im confused.....is there a full moon??? lololol

                                  1. re: intrepid

                                    Are they also open for lunch right now? Thanks!

                                      1. re: intrepid

                                        Went last night. I can't believe the transformation of the place. It looks great. We both had pizza and loved it. Can't wait to go back. Great to see Joe, Sean and Kelly!

              2. Does anyone have any updates? Is there a full menu yet or is it still limited?

                  Ate there last night. Very full menu. Appetizers, salads (entree and small size), pizza, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, fish, chicken, steak. Very attractive renovations to old space. We had burgers, pizza and salads. They were good but not great. What I liked about it was that you could get anything there. The price would depend on what you ordered. My husband and friend said the burgers were very good. My other friend enjoyed a goat cheese salad topped with salmon. I had a beet and arugula salad topped with shrimp. The vegetables were delicious but the shrimp tasted boiled where they should have been grilled. We didn't eat dessert there because I had a farmer's market pie at home. Will definitely go back. Great place to take kids or have a quick nice night out. Probably would have liked it even more if I hadn't eaten at North in Armonk the night before. North is truly outstanding!

                  1. re: samka

                    These are two very different restaurants and really can't compare. I also thought North was excellent, but for it's type, I love Village Social as well. It's great to have a choice for everyone and the pizza's are great.

                    1. re: samka

                      Thanks for the great review! i have only heard great things about North as well, and need to get around to trying both restaurants.

                  2. A Foodies Review: Nice atmosphere, great bar, basic service (but not knowledgeable), average prices, good beer selections, average wine selections.

                    Now for food: Good smoky thin crust pizza, creative salads, good burgers, soups and some appetizers. Don't go if you're looking for a creative entree (you may not recognize some of the esoteric ingredients that inhabit the chefs dishes) This is not a bad thing just something you should be aware of so ask your hostess before ordering. The dishes are inconsistent stick to the plates I mentioned and you will be satisfied along with a smaller bill.

                    I dont love places that change chefs within 3 months and I don't love kitchens that overcook calimari. You may think that is silly but its a measuring stick. It tells me the staff is not focused or properly trained. Trust me on this. Born in Italy, you would get shot for overcooking pasta making the risotto run. So go to Village Social have a nice pizza and salad and maybe even an appetizer ( go for fritters, stay aware from bland fish tacos) you'll be gald you did.

                      Service depends on the server. There are some great servers at Village Social. They also have a great burger, muscles in a smoky bacon broth and a killer side - potato and carmelized onions cooked in duck fat. Sometimes a chef doesn't work out - this one is very good.

                    2. Do they have a lunch menu at this place? Website only has one menu, is it the same menu all day for lunch and dinner?

                        I think it is probably the same menu for lunch since there is lots of stuff on that menu that works for both.

                        1. re: wincountrygirl

                          OK, but most places that serve lunch have lower prices than for dinner...

                          1. re: menton1

                            We had a great dinner last night at Village Social. We had French Martinis and they were great.

                            I had Sunny Side Up Egg Prosciutto \ Truffles \ Tomatoes \ FontIna pizza. Was delicious!
