Pisillo Italian Panini!
As fictional New Yorker and food enthusiast, Liz Lemon once said, “I believe that all anyone really wants in this life is to sit in peace and eat a sandwich.” Maybe she also meant to add “eating with your coworkers” but I think you get the point. It’s a simple formula – high-quality bread, protein, fresh veggies, and a sauce or dressing to pull it all together. What is so amazing about sandwiches is that something so simple can be so transcendent. There’s nothing quite like a good sandwich.
No one represents the simple yet perfect aspect of a sandwich better than Antonella Silvio and Carmelo Nazzaro of Pisillo Italian Panini. Antonella and Carmelo opened Pisillo almost three years ago, as a white-tiled homage to Silvio’s home town in Italy, Sant’Agata de’ Goti, an arresting stone bastion nestled in the hills above Naples.
Inside the small shop, they are able to craft NYC’s largest, freshest, and most delicious sandwiches, all served on fresh ciabatta made daily. Seriously, you’re gonna freak when you see these sandwiches. Try their namesake sandwich, the Pisillo – Prosciutto di parma, porchetta, bufala mozzarella, roasted red peppers, arugula and balsamic dressing on that aforementioned airy and chewy ciabatta bread.
Feelin’ fancy? Try the Torino Truffle sandwich with coppa, fresh mozzarella, and arugula on ciabatta bread. If you are looking for something without meat but still full of fresh Italian flavor, go for the Capri – Bufala mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, arugula and extra virgin olive oil on ciabatta bread.
You really can’t go wrong when Pisillo does everything so damn right!
A Dosa this, a Dalup of that. A spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down.
Ok, so maybe Marry Poppins wasn’t referring to a lamb korma or a delicious paneer, but then again, maybe she was. Regardless of where you stand on the Marry Poppins debate, Dalup has you covered. There you’ll find the vibrant flavors of Indian, realigned with their fresh approach for the lighter palate.
Dalup is Inspired by traditional Indian flavors near and far, and driven by technology to define their own standard of authenticity and health consciousness. You won’t find cream, excess oil, or deep frying in anything that they do. Instead, you’ll find vibrant, real and fresh dishes, every time. Their curries are dairy-free, vegan and gluten-free.
Try the classic chicken karma bowl, roasted chicken in a cashew curry similar to a tikka masala, with biryani rice, roasted beets, and seasonal vegetables. Looking for something a little lighter, check out the coconut kofta naan roll, vegetable kofta with coconut curry, red onion, ancient grain, lettuce and coconut wrapped in naan.
Dalup will leave you feeling satisfied without any of the guilt, you may even want seconds!
