New Haven Apizza

New Haven is the Pizza Capital of the United States

#NHV

Welcome to Downtown New Haven, where awe-inspiring innovation meets the nation’s best pizza. Here, connections are made possible, from art and education to cutting-edge research and world-class healthcare. Here, our hamburgers go sans ketchup and bookstores and boutiques abound. Throughout the Elm City, thought is nurtured, imagination is realized, and industries are born.

Located between Boston and New York, New Haven is the smart spot.  There’s a lot to learn, taste, see, and do here. Click around and see what you’ve been missing, us.

Eat

New Haven is the Pizza Capital of the United States. Our apizza is often imitated, but never duplicated, there’s only ONE place to experience the best pizza in America, right here in New Haven.

Downtown New Haven’s distinctive shopping district begins on Chapel Street and crosses over to Broadway. Our shops and street corners established “prep” style, but we’ve got more up our sleeves. 

The warm weather beckons as the beer taps bubble and July rolls in. This month, locals will fill their days with activities in the green spaces across the city, and dishes served hot (in air-conditioned eateries).

See

In New Haven, we end our days in curtain calls and encores. Here, locals and visitors come together and connect over a melody, a monologue, or a mic drop. Interested? We’ll save you a seat.

Museum-crawl through the streets of New Haven and feel the history, art, and culture come to life – from the exterior walls of an outdoor mural, to the hallowed halls of the New Haven Museum. 

We won’t check your zip code at the door; when you’re here, you’re a local. Spend a night or extend your stay at any of our conveniently located hotels.

Whether you greet the day with chicken and waffles or a classic eggs benny, we’ll meet you with our spiciest Bloody Marys and sweetest bellinis – bottomless, of course. 

Farm-fresh or fast (good) food, leave your lunchbox at home. Our restaurants give lunch breaks a good name, serving up the freshest ingredients on revolving menus that will fight your mid-day fatigue.

Long week?  Tired of cooking? Treat yourself to some savory cuisine from downtown’s culinary experts, to-go.

Dear Summer, 
Isn’t it about time you stopped showing off? You’ve made us all aware already that you’re, like, really hot. 😅

Sincerely,
New Haveners

Stay hydrated and find some shade friends! And for more ways to beat the heat in #NHV head to the link in bio.

It's al fresco season and what better way to dine than with a view? Located on the 6th floor of The Blake Hotel, is New Haven's premiere rooftop bar; High George by Siena. An iconic cocktail oasis right in the heart of downtown serves Connecticut microbrews, global wines and craft cocktails, as well as enticing appetizers, shareable entrees and desserts.

Prefer something a little more air-conditioned? Nestled in the lobby of The Blake Hotel, Siena Ristorante serves up Italian cuisine, “the way nonna used to.” You love it, we love it, and apparently, the culinary enthusiasts at OpenTable and People Magazine love it. The teams collaborated to celebrate People’s 50th anniversary with a stunning list of the 50 most beautiful restaurants in the country, crowning one from each state. Connecticut’s choice was a New Haven favorite – check out the full list at the link in bio. #NHV #NHVEats #SummerDifferently
