Two Story Pizzeria/Cooking School Coming to Bleecker St.

New, 5 comments

West Village: While David Bouley works on his new Japanese cooking school down in Tribeca, we learn his isn't New York's only new culinary education import. Prudential Douglas Elliman just sent word that they offered a long term lease for a two story space at 271 Bleecker (between Jones and Cornelia) to the Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani, an Italian pizza-makers association. They plan to open a cooking school on the lower level where they will teach "literally ancient cooking techniques to students eager to make the most authentic regional food possible" and a restaurant above. Neither space has been named. According to Crain's, APN will serve thin crust Neapolitan pizza in the restaurant and plans on opening in mid-February. Update: Flo Fab reports it will be called Kesté Pizza e Vino.
