A Nags Head Restaurant Tradition
New York Pizza Pub is located in Nags Head Outer Banks. The Gurski family welcomes you and has been serving the Outer Banks since 2003. Since we’re not exactly located in the Big Apple, let us explain our name. When we bought the restaurant in 2003, we had recently sold our Italian restaurant in New York called Grandma’s that we’d had for 20 years. We love the restaurant business and knew we wanted to bring our authentic recipes and the flavor fest of New York dining to our next endeavor. We also wanted to move some place that was close to our two sets of families who were in New York and Florida. One visit to the Outer Banks and, like so many others, we fell in love with this place and knew it was our new home. We’re big boaters too, so being surrounded by all this water was a huge plus. Thus, New York Pizza Pub came to be.
Over the past 15 years, we’ve redesigned the interior of our Nags Head restaurant, emphasizing the upper-level balcony that’s open to the entire first floor, making this a spacious and welcoming venue for events too. New York Pizza Pub is actually one of the largest restaurants on the beach, and the ample space helps promote a feeling of non-cluttered, relaxed dining. We also added an outdoor deck where it’s perfect for take-out dining with your dog or for sipping on a refreshment as your table is being prepared. But the biggest calling card is our large and fine-tuned menu that combines truly authentic Italian dishes, made from scratch and with Grandma’s recipes, along with imaginative local seafood, salads and burgers. Locals will tell you that we serve the best steak on the beach! Our hand-tossed New York-style pizza ranks at the top of everyone’s list, of course, including our gluten-free ones! And we will promise you that your service will be the friendliest you’ve ever experienced . . . plus, we make some mean cocktails!
