If you follow Slice at all, you'll have heard of Don Antonio, the newest venture by Kesté's Roberto Caporuscio. This time around he's teamed up with his mentor, Antonio Starita, one of the big dogs in Naples' pizza scene. Luckily, Roberto brings not only his Kesté reputation and Starita pedigree with him, but a handful of never-seen-before techniques to the table as well, making Don Antonio not just a neighborhood pizzeria, but a full-on destination joint.
The genius behind the pistachio pesto recipe is Giuseppe Starita, Antonio Starita's son, who currently operates Pizzeria Starita back home in Naples. The sweet and fruity pistachios give a richness that perfectly compliments the crumbled sweet Italian pork sausage.
Daily Slice gives a quick snapshot each weekday of a different slice or pie that the folks at the Serious Eats empire have enjoyed lately. [Photograph: J. Kenji Lopez-Alt] Since opening a month ago, we've had a great first look and 'Top This' recipe post from mid-town Manhattan's newest Neapolitan pizzeria, Don Antonio. The Antonio Starita and Roberto Caporuscio pizzaoli partnership here guarantees that the pizzas are gonna be the real deal, but when I saw the Girella ($21), I had to get my mitts on it. Why the Girella? Because this roulade of mozzarella looks freakin' awesome:...
Last week we gave you a quick look at Don Antonio, the Neapolitan pizzeria that's a partnership between Kesté's Roberto Caporuscio and his mentor, Antonio Starita of Naples' Pizzeria Starita. Here, we take you along as Starita and Caporuscio—along with Caporuscio's daughter, Giorgia—make some of the place's signature menu items.
Eating well late at night in midtown isn't quite as easy as it is elsewhere in New York, but that doesn't mean you can't do well for yourself and your maybe-tipsy urges. So here's your guide: burgers, pizza, Korean Spam stews, street meat, and plenty more to eat in the business heart of Manhattan.
Once a week or so, the question pops up in the New York talk boards: "I'm coming to the city for two days. Where should I eat?" It's a question so open-ended that it's tough to answer. But our fair city has so many visitors that we figured it was high time to put out a little guide. So here's our guide to eating in New York: whether you're traveling solo or traveling with kids, up for adventuring or not leaving Midtown.
Two years ago we shared our picks for where to eat near Times Square, the focal point of New York's tourist economy and home to many a chain mega-restaurant. But amid the mammoth TGI Friday's and Guy Fieri's 500-seat restaurant, you'll find plenty of quality places for a quick bite, a casual lunch, or a full sit-down meal. This guide covers the picks from our original guide, plus our new favorite spots we've encountered since July 2011.
Up until a few days ago I had no idea that Don Antonio serves sandwiches for lunch, but they do. Five of them under their panini section, ranging from $9 to $10. Sandwich is a bit of a misnomer, however. Sure, there's bread and stuff in between it so it technically qualifies, but the bread starts out as raw dough wrapped free-form around fillings that then get baked in their wood burning oven.
When it comes to eating with family, you want a place that's reliable, reasonably affordable, and low on hassle. There's plenty to worry about before a big holiday. Where to eat dinner on the nights before or after shouldn't be one of them. To that end, here are some solid restaurant options good for eating out with the folks.
Whether you're looking for a fancy pre-theater dinner or just want to grab a fast and inexpensive post-show bite, here's an updated list of our favorite Theater District eats that will help you select from the cream of the area's very crowded crop.
