Beloved pizza joint Fornino opened on Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 6 ahead of schedule over the long weekend, so you can now head there seven days a week for your pizza and skyline fix.
But that's not all Chef Ayoub is offering at the location—he'll be serving up pies (a limited menu of six, listed below), salads, sandwiches, soft serve, and there's a full bar on the roof open until midnight. We're told "food works on a ticketing system similar to the Standard beer garden and tickets are $3/each. A 4 ticket pie is $12, beer/wine are 2 tickets/$6, Prosecco is 3 tickets/$9 and cocktails are 4 tickets/$12." Which seems unnecessarily confusing! So, when looking at the menu, keep in mind those are ticket numbers, not prices. UPDATE: The day after this was published Fornino abandoned their ticket system—hurrah!
