Having spent the holiday with our own families, my best friends and I celebrated our Christmas dinner last night at Campania in West Village. The uptown pizzeria serves up a variety of traditional Italian pies and pastas, using accidentally vegan ingredients as their bases. After investigating several pizzerias offering vegan fare in Dallas, I was partial to celebrating our holiday at Campania for three reasons: novelty, proximity, and, most importantly, the BYOB policy! Bret, Jenn, and I cabbed it over to West Village, each toting our favorite bottle of red. We arrived at the pizzeria expecting to find a typical, stuffy uptown hangout. What we indeed found was a friendly neighborhood pizza joint spinning Neko Case's The Virginian,and clientele representing all facets of society. Service was great, and dinner was fantastic! My pizza included artichoke hearts, eggplant, zucchini, and potatoes (which more than made up for the absence of cheese on my pie), and Bret and Jenn shared their own vegetarian pizza. With a vast assortment of fresh vegetables, the pizza and pasta variations at Campania seem limitless!
