'Cobble Hill' on Serious Eats

Cobble Hill: Sottocasa

Our favorite pizza on a recent visit, though, was the Salsiccia*—and not just because of my well-documented* predilection for sausage.

Sam's Restaurant Pizzaman Retiring, Leaving Pie-Making Duties to Son

Sam's Restaurant and Pizzeria, which took me a while to come around to, is making some changes. The blog Lost City reports that longtime pizza-maker Mario Migliaccio is heading back to Italy to retire after his wife died last month.

In Videos: Sam's Restaurant Featured in Brooklyn Documentary

I've been enjoying (and commenting upon) the recent Sam's post, and thought you might in turn like to see this video. It profiles a few Carroll Gardens establishments, talking with the proprietors, etc. There's a lot of time devoted to Sam's, mostly an interview with Louie Migliaccio [the waiter/server/busser/bartender there], but a bit with his father, Mario, who talks about making pizza. There's also the owner of D'Amico's Coffee. It's not all pizza- or food-related, but I think the majority is.... More

Openings: Pacific Pizza

From Time Out New York: Pacific Pizza The closing of a dingy Smith Street pizza joint has made way for this upscale pie-mecca from the folks behind Pacifico. Chef-owner Richard Krause (Café Luxumbourg) will apply his two years at the original Spago to his West Coast–inspired menu. Come brunch, expect a take on the classic Puck pie: smoked salmon, crème fraîche and golden caviar.
