Elizabeth Falkner, a chef known for her work at the now closed Citizen Cake in San Francisco, is coming to Brooklyn. Inside Scoop SF confirms earlier rumors that the Top Chef Masters alum is teaming up with Darren Crawford, a bartender at SF's Bourbon & Branch and Tony Nik's, and Nancy Puglisi of Tony's Pizza Napoletana, to open a cocktail joint and pizzeria in either Park Slope or Boerum/Cobble Hill. Crawford will be in charge of the cocktails, Falkner the food and the pastry program, and presumably Puglisi will run the front of house show.
Will the imports stand a chance against standbys Franny's and Lucali and the further afield Grimaldi's and (eventually) Juliana? Brooklyn will find out this summer.
