The tiny stretch of Dean Street between Fifth and Flatbush Avenues is shaping up to be quite a dining destination: Kulushkat and Broccolino are already popular spots, and Patsy's Pizza is under construction just a couple doors down. But right next door to Broccolino, the Italian restaurant's owners are planning a second eatery, and it'll be called Pizza Superstar.
The name might leave something to be desired, but based on a rendering that recently went up on the under-construction restaurant's plywood, it looks like it'll be a cute little pizza place (click to expand).
A full website is already up, complete with a menu: 17 pizzas will be on offer, ranging from "Tradizionali" (Margherita, Salame Piccante, 4 Formaggi) to "Speciali" (Amatriciana, Bresaola & Rucola, Potatoes & Pancetta). There will also be three calzones, including one filled with Parmesan, ricotta, gorgonzola, and mozzarella.The pizza oven is made by Stefano Ferrara, one of the top brands.
This looks like it'll be more of a straight-ahead Neapolitan-style pizzeria, a totally different style from the classic New York variety that Patsy's is known for, so there's actually not too much in the way of competition. The more the merrier, I say!
