Boerum Hill's Krescendo Gets Two-Stars From NY Times

Pete Wells has pizza on the brain today, the NY Times critic stopped by chef Elizabeth Falkner's new pie-shop Krescendo in Boerum Hill and filed a glowing two-star review. The critic is especially impressed with the San Francisco transplant's variety of pizzas, ranging from simple to complex. From the review:

"Ms. Falkner is skillful enough to make something exceptional out of the utterly simple: Krescendo’s marinara pizza, with four or five golden cloves of roasted garlic on a plush red circle of oregano-scented tomato sauce.

At the other end of the scale, she can assemble a complex fleet of ingredients that seem to be headed for a nasty collision and send them whizzing around the racetrack. One pizza, the Californication, is topped with prosciutto, shishito peppers, arugula, honey, two kinds of cheese and an arugula-walnut pesto. It sounds preposterous, but it’s very good, if you can bring yourself to ask for it by name."

The pastas also get a shout out - if you want to go see if Krescendo lives up to the hype, stop by at 364 Atlantic Ave.
