While there's certainly no shortage of pizza here in the Slope, there's one pizza-related opening coming up that's worth looking forward to: it's Brooklyn Central, opening Wednesday, October 10th, in the space on Fifth Avenue between First and Second Streets that was last home to Pete's Pizzeria.
What makes this pizzeria different from the others? Namely, the cred: its owners, Matthew Hyland and Roberto Patriarca, met while working at Sottocasa, a Boerum Hill gem that was recently named one of the best new pizzerias in the country by Food & Wine.
The pizza will be Neapolitan-style, cooked in a wood-fired oven, and will be served alongside house-made charcuterie and a selection of local wines. If Brooklyn Central lives up to expectations (and there's no reason it shouldn't), it'll further cement this stretch of the avenue as one of the best restaurant rows in the city (and therefore the world).
