🚨 We’re excited to announce combined ordering at 2nd Language and @tastepangeapizzeria. Starting now, you can order anything from the menu at Pangea Pizzeria next door while you’re dining with us.
🍜 If one of you wants ramen and the other wants pizza, you no longer have to decide between the two. Enjoy both!
🍕 Pangea Pizzeria specializes in Neo-Neapolitan pizza, which is a different style than you’ll find at Pangea Kitchen. It’s an American adaptation using Italian techniques and it results in crispier crust, more toppings, and a larger pie. As always, we focus on artisanal ingredients, made in-house by our culinary team or sourced from Italy and other quality local vendors. Order a whole pie in 14” or 18”, or choose from one of our 5 daily slices. Check out the menu at

🌼 Where can I find a cocktail like that? Try Jessie’s Girl now at 2nd Language! Made with Woodford Bourbon, Aperol, lemon juice, and Orgeat syrup. It tastes as good as it looks! ...

🍮 The Chocolate Caramel Latte Tart hits the dessert menu this month, and it’s as delectable as it sounds! Sweet tart dough filled with a salty caramel layer and a rich dark chocolate espresso ganache. Topped with fresh vanilla bean whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel and finished with chocolate covered espresso beans.
