New York City Business Spotlight: Grand Appetito

There are hundreds of pizzerias in New York City and everyone has their favorite. Our favorite pizzeria is a bit off the radar but it is also somewhat of a neighborhood favorite. That pizzeria is Grand Appetito in Little Italy. Grand Appetito was founded in 2012 by the owner’s cousin Angelo who arrived from Palermo, Italy. He helped shape the pizzeria’s recipes and shaped their desire to use quality Italian ingredients perhaps most importantly fresh mozzarella. You can’t go wrong with any their pizzas off their menu or their pizzas ready for those on the go but one pizza that does stand out is their “grandma’s pie” (which you can try on our tour of Little Italy & Chinatown).

Ahoy New York’s Foodie To Do List for the Summer

Today is the official start of summer! With that in mind, here is Ahoy New York’s foodie to do list for the summer. All the restaurants, bakeries, pizzerias etc. below have a ton of buzz about them and we can’t wait to try them all. Try Dominique Ansel Bakery’s Cronut – 189 Spring St Since it was introduced, there have been long lines every day of people waiting to buy Dominique Ansel’s latest creation, the cronut.

But all of these stories just make us want a cronut that much more! Dine at Wylie Dufresne’s new restaurant Alder – 157 2nd Ave Wylie Dufresne is the…
