- Stella Artois will celebrate pizza in New York in a South Street Seaport pop-up over the next two months.
- Along with Chef Emma Bengtsson and the husband-and-wife team behind Don Angie, participating chefs will include Erik Ramirez of Llama Inn and Hugue Dufour of M. Wells.
Belgian beer brand Stella Artois is throwing a summer-long pizza party in downtown Manhattan with some of New York’s best Michelin-starred chefs whipping up the pies, according to Forbes.
Seaport Artois will be open on select Thursdays for two months at Pier 16 of South Street Seaport. For the pop-up, renowned chefs like Emma Bengtsson of Aquavit and Angie Rito and Scott Tacinelli, the husband-and-wife team behind the Italian-American restaurant Don Angie, have developed specialty pizzas reflecting their own culinary styles.
For the launch of Seaport Artois, the Sweden-born Bengtsson crafted a Nordic style of pizza featuring a sourdough crust laden with hay-smoked cheese, whey béchamel, cured pork fat, potatoes and pickled onions. Rito and Tacinelli, meanwhile, dished up a stuffed-pepperoni flatbread filled with stracchino cheese, a spin on the Northern Italy classic, focaccia di recco.
The July 8 event is themed “NYC Flavors: a Toast to the Diversity of Food Across This Fine City.” July 22 will focus on street food and culture, while August 5 offers “a one-night-only appearance from a beloved spot that closed its doors over the last year.” August 19 will feature “a new restaurant in the city that’s raved about.”
