Violet, named after the state flower of Rhode Island, is a new restaurant by chef/owner Matt Hyland and the Pizza Loves Emily Group, in Manhattan’s East Village neighborhood (511 East 5th St). Hyland's menu focuses on grilled cuisine that pays homage to New England and Rhode Island's flavors and abundant fresh seafood. The menu highlight, grilled pizzas, are inspired by his nostalgia for Al Forno in Providence, where he and Emily often ate while attending school in Rhode Island and his desire to fill the void of grilled pizza destinations in New York City. The pies, grilled on both sides and served with scissors to cut slices, feature seasonal and innovative toppings.
Looking to host your next event or group dinner at Violet? We'd love to have you!
For celebratory in-house events, our family-style menu is sure to make whatever the occasion a special one.
