I was thrilled to have an email from Paulie Gee this morning to give me an update on his highly anticipated new pizza spot on Greenpoint Avenue occupying the old Paloma space. And a glorious shot of his first pie fresh from his handcrafted oven… swoon!
I can’t give you an opening date yet, but I can give you a glimpse into what you’ll find at our place once the doors open. On Saturday I pulled the first pie out of my handcrafted in Naples, Stefano Ferrara oven. It was a very gratifying moment for me. I can hardly wait for everyone to see the rest of my fire-breathing beauty, along with the rest of our quickly transforming space.
I very wisely left the design and construction up to Evan and Oliver Haslegrave of www.home-nyc.com and the creative force behind The Manhattan Inn. As with the Inn, the materials they are utilizing are reclaimed and much of it has been sourced from Build It Green in Astoria. Their work in the space so far is nothing short of astounding. I also have attached my recently unveiled logo, which I’m looking forward to the residents of North Brooklyn spotting on Greenpoint Avenue very soon.
