Nate Appleman. He did A16 in San Francisco. When it opened, it was one of the few pizzerias in the U.S. to get the Verace Pizza Napoletana certification.

Rumors have been going around the last couple of months about him moving to New York. Would he open a pizzeria?

Looks like Grub Street New York confirms it. He's partnering with Keith McNally (Balthazar, Minetta Tavern, etc.) on Pulino's Bar and Pizzeria on the Bowery.

So we do indeed swap one tattooed Neapolitan-leaning pizzaiolo for another. Look for the place to open in December.
