EAT: FIRST LOOK AT SOTTACASA PIZZERIA ON LENOX
We needed to try something a bit lighter for the day so went for the artichoke and italian ham pie which had the perfect crust and more subtle flavors to it which was perfect after a week of heavy eating. For future food adventures, our eye is definitely set on trying out the Laura pizza with mascarpone and spec or the Boscailo with hot Italian sausage and gorgonzola. The presentation here is also worth noting and these pizzas have a more artisan look to them than most other spots.
Overall Sottocasa is an amazing addition to the pizza scene that is booming uptown and now there are quite a few options at various levels. West Harlem and the east side traditionally has all of the cheaper slice shops in place so it is a big change to see so many brick or wood oven pizza spot arriving on the scene in Central Harlem.
