Fornino’s Park Slope location is now open! And you can check out the menu here.
There are 17 pies being served, but notably missing is the Al Roker (roasted peppers, caramelized onions, garlic, rosemary, and prosciutto) from their Williamsburg menu. The menu also boasts a lot of non pizza offerings — leading me to think that while their original location is primarily a pizza place, the new spot in Park Slope will lean more towards a restaurant which happens to serve pizza. Also of note: the most expensive pies are only $14 which we like!
Reports are in that rather than cooking pies in an oven (as is the case at the Williamsburg location), they’ll be grilling pies. Interesting…
You can check out a video below from Accademia Di Vino, which is another notable restaurant that grills its pies.
One of the pros of grilling is that it enables some more experimentation with toppings than a brick oven, although it comes at the expense of a good crust.
