Park Slope has quite the pizzaiolo on their hands - Robert Patriarca opened Brooklyn Central in October 2012, where he fuses "Old World" and "New World" dishes. With a focus on Neapolitan pizza, "Old World" refers to the buffalo mozzarella imported from Italy with conventional toppings, while "New World" pizza incorporate fresh mozzarella made in Brooklyn. The pizzeria sources many of their ingredients locally, and by local we mean right down the street. Since Neapolitan pizzas seem to be on trend in New York City, it can be very difficult to know where to go to get a great slice. Even for Manhattanites, a trek to Brooklyn is worth a slice here.
Brooklyn Central is located at 289 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, NY. 347-725-4891
