Motorino Hong Kong: Off to a Decent Start

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

Catching up on some pizza news post-holidays, I came across some photos that Eater posted of the forthcoming Williamsburg Motorino location receiving an oven-sized special delivery. More

Photo of the Day: Pizza Without Power at Motorino

Slice: New York 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

Grub Street reported yesterday that the folks behind Motorino, whose original Brooklyn location closed in August 2011, are seeking a license to operate at 139 Broadway in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. More

An East Village Pie-athalon: Who's Got The Best Neapolitan Pies?

J. Kenji López-Alt 29 comments

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

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

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

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

NYC Pizza Cultural Literacy

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.

The 10 Best Pizzas in NYC

Slice: New York The Serious Eats Team 80 comments

When deciding on this list, certainly history, setting, and pedigree had an impact, but in the end, it was all about the flavor. We didn't care whether the joint was 80 years old, or 8 months old, as long as they served a tasty pie. And here they are. Our favorite pizzas in the city. A mix of the old, a mix of the new, a representation of most of the boroughs, a bit of something delicious for everyone. More

Slice: New York The Slice Team 3 comments

That we at Slice love pizza is a given. So you know we love the various heart-shaped pizzas that appear this time of year. Our favorite cardioid pie is the one at NYC's Motorino, where it's become a Valentine's Day tradition. We asked chef-owner Mathieu Palombino to show us how it's done. More

Daily Slice: Motorino's Cherrystone Clam Pizza, East Village, NYC

Daily Slice Adam Kuban 33 comments

October! National Pizza Month! This month we'll be bringing you Daily Slice, quick snapshots of slices and pies all of us at the Serious Eats empire have been enjoying lately. —The Mgmt. [Photograph: Sarah Wu/Motorino Facebook] Given how much we love Motorino around these parts, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the pizzeria would eventually appear in Daily Slice. Yes, it's a whole pie — composed of four slices. And, despite this feature's name, we never meant it to adhere slavishly to the slice-only format. Especially if that would keep us from mentioning this killer pizza. If you've followed... More

The Pieman's Craft: Stretching Pizza Dough with Motorino's Mathieu Palombino

The Pieman's Craft The Serious Eats Team 41 comments

The pizzas at both the Brooklyn and Manhattan locations of Motorino are known for their puffy outer edge (what the Italians call the cornicione). We wondered how Motorino owner and head pieman Mathieu Palombino achieved this effect. So we visited with videocam in hand and captured it here. More
