'BKMatt' on Serious Eats

First Look: Brooklyn Central in Park Slope

Brooklyn Central, a new restaurant on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, isn't your typical Neapolitan Pizzeria. The restaurant, named after the old elevated railway that once ran through the neighborhood, is a collaboration between Hyland and Roberto Patriarca, who met working at Sottocasa. Hyland previously worked at The Spotted Pig and The Breslin, and Patriarca is an i Trulli alum. More

My Pie Monday: BEC, Sicilia-NY, Gluten-Free Pizza, and More!

This edition of My Pie Monday is a real mashup! We have Slice'rs making pies from other Slicer's, like dmcavanagh's rendition of Thezaman's Youngstown Sicilian from last week. There are Slice'rs making famous pies, like Norma's Cherry Jones, and Slice'rs turning two famous pies into one, a la Dhorst! Oh, and jimmyg throws a pie varietal mashup in the mix with his hybridized Sicilian-NY pie. Nice one! Both Thezaman and Bierebeer take a ride on the gluten free crust train—very apropos after the Domino's and Don Antonio coverage from Adam Kuban last week. BKMatt gets nostalgia with a bacon, egg, and cheese pizza in honor of the suburban breakfast sandwiches of his youth. Pizzabinge adds a little sweetness to his pie with a touch of honey, TXCraig1 dresses his Margherita up with some "extra stuff," and amusebouche1 fires up a "Four Seasons" pie. This week also includes Imwalkin's "best taste of the year," a mushroom, spinach, and herb pie from Hogeltboglet, and a first time submission from JEL! More

My Pie Monday: Fiddleheads, Sambuca, Youngstown Sicilian and More!

Happy, My Pie Monday! The pie-making Slice'rs are on fire. Thezaman contributes a hyper regional Sicilian from Youngstown, Ohio, Dhorst is back in business with a new double-decker ovens, and Damian produced a "nearly-politan" with some dough formula tips from TXCraig1. Speaking of TXCraig1, he's falling hard for the Calabrian and Cheese combo. Norma427 produced her best Sicilian to date, and Npinto shares the topping collection pie from the end of a pizza-making evening. Another curtain closing pie comes from Livefreeorpie. The spring topping award this week goes to BKMatt with foraged fiddlehead ferns crowning his pie. Speck gets some play on pies from amusebouche1 and atmast. Redwgn67 lays down a fig spread on this week's pizza, jimmyg works Sambuca into his toppings, and KTC brings buffalo chicken and mac n cheese together on one crust. Bbb-ry is back with a Four Cheese and Mushroom pie, Bierebeer focuses on caramelized onions, and Imwalkin pairs Vidalia onions with pepper shooters. More
