In a perfect world, we'd be able to say "accio pasta," and a plate of cheesy carbs would appear right in front of us. A new restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, called Pasta Wiz is making that dream a pretty close reality with its Harry Potter-inspired menu and decor. Inside the restaurant, you'll get serious Gryffindor Common Room vibes from the dark red couches, gothic chandeliers, and pillar candles as you twirl your spaghetti.
The menu itself is even more magical: the organic pasta is made fresh daily, and you can choose from spaghetti, fettuccine, fusilli, and radiatore. You order at the counter (which is topped with a Sorting Hat, naturally) as you choose your own toppings, like spinach, mushrooms, or meatballs, and then finish your plate with the sauce of your choice, including Wizard Mix (pesto), Grandma's Tomato, Spicy Arrabbiata, Merlin Mix, or Vegan Wiz.
"We decided Pasta Wiz, it's like a wizard magical place, so we've made it Harry Potter-style. We decorated in a Harry Potter-style," the owner, Alex Dimitrov, told Gothamist in an interview. Ahead, get a glimpse of the food and interior of the wizard-approved restaurant, and consider yourself lucky if you live in or near Brooklyn. The rest of us will just have to figure out a way to apparate there ASAP.
