Monday through Saturday, from 5 p.m. to 4 a.m., V-Lounge serves chewy, thin-crust pizza that rivals the titans of the East, Lombardi's and Grimaldi's. Venezuelan-American chef Alejandro “Aker” Briceno runs the kitchen, constantly questing for the perfect pizza. Whether you like your pie with thick mounds of shaved prosciutto or just fresh mozzarella and sauce, V-Lounge is nearly there: the ideal slice.
