Don Antonio. New York
« on: February 21, 2016, 03:15:31 PM »
Had Neapolitan at Don Antonio in New York midtown.  Twenty minute wait, great pie - ordered pizza del papa - butternut cream sauce, red bell peppers, mini zucchini, smoked mozzarella.   Excellent pizza, just like Keste's - same management I believe.

I'd make that pie a lot if it wasn't such a pain in the rear to prep.

 ^^^ I have not done it in over a year.  I remember discussing the butternut cream sauce with you.  I did not find a recipe I really liked.   It can be too sweet or too strong.  The sauce last night was light and mild.  I will try again - of course I think when someone does all the work for you and you can just sit & eat without all the sweat and pressure, the pie tastes better ;)

Visiting NY for Broadway - the Humans.  Stopped back at Don Antonio at Starita for lunch.  Veggie pizza superb - friendly quick service, Robertos daughter there.  Crust soft and tender with char.  Toppings flavorful- cheese creamy

I work near Don Antonio and have been there twice so far. It's my only experience eating Neapolitan, and it's been great.

I've tried 6 of their pies so far. The margherita was probably my favorite, but special mention to the pistachio pesto with sausage pie. Here's a few from my last time there.

Try the Montanara Starita sometime, it's pretty good!

Strangely enough,  I didn't really like it. I like fried dough (who doesn't) but it wasn't for me. For me it was a bit unbalanced (a lot of dough) and I didn't really like the smokeyness of the mozz. (Though I did like the smoked mozzarella in the appetizer I had.) Here's the pie I had.

I agree. For me, a montanara is just OK. If I was going to sell one in a restaurant, I'd serve it with a little dish of honey to dip the "bones" in.

Enjoyed it very much.  A slice of American life, with all the family love and conflicts most of us experience.  Good for young adults thru senior citizens.  Gripping and humorous.  Pair it with Neapolitan at Don Antonio and it does not get any better

I just shared another 4 pies there. My first time being there for dinner - I recommend lunch as it's much quieter. But the pies were just as good.

Very nice lunch!  Is that a pesto pie on the right?

Yes, it's pistachio pesto. After the first time I had it, I found the recipe. But I haven't made it yet.

Could you share the recipe? We were there over the weekend, and I had that pie, it was great! Would love to take a crack at making it myself.


Thanks,
