Motorino Hong Kong: Off to a Decent Start

Slice Rachel Balota 17 comments

It was with no small amount of excitement that multiple friends—from die-hard pizza aficionados in New York City to fellow expats who have been living a rather bleak, pizza-less existence—barraged me with the news that Motorino was opening its first international outpost here in Hong Kong. Needless to say, I was eager to see how the famed New York pizzeria was faring in its early weeks abroad. More

New York The Serious Eats Team 9 comments

Being a vegetarian in New York isn't the challenge it used to be, but that doesn't mean it's always easy.

With that in mind, here are 60 recommendations for restaurants that accommodate vegetarians without disappointing carnivores. More

Photo of the Day: Pizza Without Power at Motorino

Slice Carey Jones 16 comments

One of the best photos I've seen in the aftermath of Sandy. The heartily Serious Eats-endorsed Motorino in the East Village has, like nearly all of downtown Manhattan, been without power for quite a few days. But wood-burning ovens don't need electricity to operate. So here's pizzaiolo/owner Mathieu Palombino mixing up a massive amount of dough—without a mixer. They opened yesterday at 11am to help keep the East Village fed. In a word: respect. More

Hangover Helper: The Pizza Al'Uovo From Motorino, NYC

Drinks J. Kenji López-Alt 12 comments

Motorino's Pizza Al'Uovo ($14), served only on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., arrives at the table like an angry force, jets of steam shooting from the poofy, leopard-spotted rim, the layer of melted homemade fior di latte bubbling under a slick of dark red chili oil. Their pizzas are never a demure affair, but this guy is about at wild as they come. More

There are three Neapolitan-ish pizzerias all within a one block radius in the East Village between 11th and 12th street and Avenues A and 2, making it a prime dining destination for pie-eaters from the city. The question is: If you're headed to the East Village, which pizzeria should be on the top of your list? Is it Motorino, Luzzo's, or Numero 28? More

The Vegan Experience Day 25: Can Vegans Still Enjoy Pizza?

The Vegan Experience J. Kenji López-Alt 38 comments

The key to great vegan pizza? It's exactly the same as the key to great cheesy pizza: it comes down to the pieman's craft, the tools being used, and the quality of the individual components, the most important of which is the crust. More

Serving Lots Of Pizza At a Party? Reheat It With An Electric Griddle

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt Post a comment

Last night at our first book launch party, we served pizzas from Motorino. Not only did the pizzas have to come all the way from the East Village, they also had to be served continuously throughout a four hour long party. Compounding our difficulties was the fact that there was no operating oven in the space we were serving from. What were we to do? More

A Pizza Snob's Approach To Toppings

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 107 comments

As a writer for the people, I often try and suppress my inner pizza snob. I try and pretend that all pies are created equal, and that there is goodness to everything on a crust. Sometimes I even manage to convince myself. After all, if tens of thousands of people enjoy eating buffalo chicken pizza, there's got to be something good about it that I'm missing, right? Well today, I'm letting diplomacy take a little breather and laying out a few of my hard and fast ground rules about pizza toppings. More

Here's the tweet that inspired this post:

Yes, @alexandrak, such a post does exist, and if your boyfriend finds what I'm about to write all TL;DR, he can check it out: The 10 Best Pizzas in NYC » That's a solid list, no doubt. And if his NYC pizza research stops there, I'm sure he'd be happy. But I think simply dropping a best-of list on a New York newbie does him a bit of a disservice. After all, he's moving to a pizza mecca. I think a little context is in order.
