Beloved pizza restaurant Motorino is re-opening in Williamsburg.
When the Department of Buildings closed its Graham Avenue home in 2011 because of structural problems, chef and owner Mathieu Palombino promised a comeback.
Two years later, the pizzeria is set to open its doors again on Thursday, with a familiar wood-burning pizza oven at the heart of its operation, as well as new additions to the menu.
Customers at the 50-seat restaurant can expect to find a Porchetta Calzone with roasted porchetta and pecorino, as well as Frittatina, a macaroni cake fried in olive oil and made with provolone cheese and prosciutto.
Motorino - 139 Broadway, between Bedford & Driggs avenues.
