Pizza

New School: Speedy Romeo
After years of doing the fine dining thing in Manhattan (helping launch multiple restaurants for Jean-Georges Vongerichten, no less), the next phase of Justin Bazdarich’s career was to open this cheeky woodburning pizza spot in Clinton Hill, inside an old auto body shop. And although a certain amount of his white tablecloth sensibility is on display (menu items include whole branzino with roasted fennel and herb oil and Neapolitan donuts with market cherry jam), Bazdarich knows better than to get too precious in the pursuit of a killer pizza pie. Try the simple Marinara, topped with tomato sauce, anchovy, basil, oregano and sea salt, or The Dangerfield, paved with veal and pork meatballs, ricotta, béchamel and garlic chips.
