Fornino Shmornino...I'm moving on to Camp de'Fiori! It's a new pizza joint on 5th Ave that, according to a tip from our pals at Metromix, is opening today-ish.
This spot is gonna be run by former Del Posto manager Andrea Dal Monte, and is actually a sister restaurant to Rome's famous Forno Campo de' Fiori.
This is the line that got me from Metromix's write-up:
"We worked on our dough for 15 years," says Dal Monte, whose Italian partner is a "flour engineer" and member of the country's national Olympic baking team.
These bitches had me at "flour engineer."
See your asses there this weekend.
