Harlem Bespoke: Fumo on Amsterdam by 139th Street just had a soft opening of their next-door takeout slice shop called Uncle Tony's last night and we were able to drop by to try out some of the artisan offerings. Fumo was the Bespoke pick for Best New Italian eatery in 2016 so the pie shop was definitely on our radar for this year.
The new arrival at 1596 Amsterdam Avenue has more specialized square pizza with combinations such as savory mushroom, ricotta with truffle oil, cauliflower red onion, sausage, basil with hot pepper or even a thicker crust pepperoni. There are also traditional menu items such as round pies and the requisite cheese slice or garlic knots. Uptown vegans out there might want to try out the pesto, basil, vegetarian cheese slice which was just as excellent as the standard fare. Uncle Tony's is definitely a welcome addition to the uptown food scene so make sure to stop by and support this local business.
