Wings And Pies Norwich Ct

Must Try

Kevin Gorden Special To The Times

Abandoned: Norwich State Hospital/Asylum

Business is hopping again at 80 Broadway. The latest addition to the downtown Norwich restaurant scene has been open for the past few weeks. Pie Hops is located in the building formerly occupied by Cafe Otis, which fell victim to the pandemic lockdown. The new endeavor is a joint venture of businessman Bill Neilson and Executive Chef Mark Vecchitto.

The new restaurant serves brick-oven pizza, but dont call the establishment just a pizza place.

We also feature giant burgers, dinner specials at night, crazy nachos, and chicken wings. Plus we have 16 local specialty craft beers on tap, with more to be offered in cans. Were a gastro-pub that sells pizza, Vecchitto said.

The burgers are piled high with toppings, including the MacDaddy, which includes macaroni and cheese, bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, and donkey sauce that delivers a kick. Pizzas include Youre Bacon Me Crazy, which includes provolone cheese, carmelized onions, a honey garlic drizzle, and, of course, lots of bacon.

Perhaps, though, the most unusual menu items are the tin can nachos, piled high on a plate inside a tall tin can, which the server slides off at the customers table.

Vecchitto says the menu is still evolving, based on the customers palates. There are daily specials.

Its Norwich, though. I dont want to go over the top with the menu, he said. This is fun. Just trying to feel out the crowd.

    Have a short stack of our Buttermilk Pancakes with Sausage Patties between them and 2 Eggs on top, with a big bowl of grits. Coffee and a small Apple Juice finish this great meal.



    Tyler works hard on our nationâs pipelines, and he is basic and hearty when it comes to breakfast. Home fries are mixed with onions, peppers, mushrooms, bacon and sausage, topped with 2 eggs cooked to order, and served with our bottomless coffee.



    My brother, the retired rocket scientist, makes his living now with Raku ceramics.

Have 3 scrambled eggs topped with salsa, home fries topped with sausage gravy, biscuits, and your choice of bacon or sausage, with coffee and a small juice.



    Sarah loves salmon, whether breakfast lunch or dinner. This is the clas-sic New York Deli breakfast with smoked salmon, toasted bagel, ca-pers, onions, tomatoes, and cream cheese.



    Travis doesnât like eggs, but he likes his sweets and sandwiches. When heâs in town, he likes to have a sausage and cheese sandwich on an English muffin with home fries and a short stack of Cinnamon Crisp. Then he has a large juice instead of coffee.

Reviews For Norwich Pizza Palace

The cheese pizza was hot and delicious. The price is right. The place is small. We also got buffalo wings that we’re quite spicy and decent. The owner is not rude…he seems like a hard working decent guy…maybe a little shy. He’s been running the place for more than 20 years….he has to be doing something right.
