San Matteo now open on St. Mark's Place: Get your panuozzo


A 12-seat branch of the Upper East Side-based San Matteo Pizza and Espresso Bar opened Monday on St. Mark's Place near Avenue A (in the space left vacant by Motek, the crepe place...)

A panuozzo is a pizza-panino hybrid that looks like this...

[Via Grub Street]

And via Time Out:

The bread, made with pizza dough, is what sets the panuozzo apart. Here, the flat, chewy loaves come from the flagship Upper East Side restaurant, where they are baked for 25 seconds in a 900-degree wood-fired oven to achieve a moist crumb. Choose from 11 sandwiches, like dry-cured pancetta with provolone and artichokes, honey turkey with smoked buffalo mozzarella and sun-dried Sicilian peppers, and burrata cheese with arugula, roasted peppers and truffle oil.

Did anyone try one of these things yet...?

I had the one w/ roast pork and mozz. It was pretty tasty, and I thought decently priced given where it is and how big/filling it was.

You know, there's an art to photographing food so that it doesn't look gross, and it seems to have eluded them. There's no art to photographing vomit, though.

I tried the pancetta, mozzarella and artichoke - delicious. I like the pizza dough and I'll definitely be back.

I had a terrific pancetta and artichoke sandwich last night and I enjoyed meeting the friendly owner Fabio. I look forward to my next visit soon!
