And the ambiance is truly magical! Unlike most pasta restaurants, the food is delivered to your table so quickly that it seems it was prepared by house-elves! Or maybe it is prepared by house-elves ... You can never be too sure that a wizard isn't actually behind all this.
Well, owner Alex Dimitrov could be one! Speaking to Gothamist, he said, "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 magic is making the pasta so fast and so good."
This also seems to be a main selling point on the restaurant's website, which reads,"While the interior of the Pasta Wiz flagship resembles a wizard’s enchanted lair, the real magic shines through in the prep time of their dishes: approximately 3 minutes -- less time than it takes your favorite pizza joint to heat up a slice! Convenience and speed quickly reveal themselves as parallel priorities to deliciousness."
Now, if that is not enough to whip up your appetite, get this: the restaurant is healthy! They offer gluten free and organic pastas, a range of healthy desserts, and they also have meat dishes as well as vegan options. The way you order a meal is also pretty special. Patrons use iPads that are ready for you to tap in your order. Hey, it is the nearest thing we muggles can get to summoning food at the table. No conjuring, though, as every wizard knows food is the first of the five principle exemptions to Gamp's Law of Elemental transfiguration.
Dimitrov has said that he plans on expanding on new locations in New York if the restaurant is successful. Hopefully it can also open in other major cities in the near future.
