Description

ATTN: If you're interested in learning about our newest interactive food experiences including mozzarella-making, wine and cheese pairing, brunch, and pizza-making, you can read more about each unique concept HERE.

Located in the historic neighborhood of Greenpoint, Fornino is everything a neighborhood pizza joint is supposed to be: charming, cozy, and inviting. Fun fact: Its owner, chef, and restaurateur Michael Ayoub has been credited as starting the New York City artisanal pizza craze in 2004 with the launch of Fornino, considered his life’s work. (NBD, you know?)

“I never wanted this place to be about me; I wanted to create a brand,” said Ayoub, once an accomplished glass blower, over lunch. Well, that’s exactly what he’s done on the ground level of this quintessential fire escape-facaded building on Manhattan Avenue in Brooklyn.

The minute you walk in, your eyes will gravitate towards the enormous wood-fired oven smack dab in the center of this super authentic, intimate atmosphere-- and you’ll feel the heat, too. But there’s something that screams home about it all, and getting that feeling on a weekend over brunch, it simply feels right.

And that’s what you’ll love most-- plus it doesn’t hurt when you have Chef Ayoub at the helm of this two-hour (starting at 3 PM on Saturdays because, let's be honest, no real New Yorker really wants to wake up that early on Saturday, especially after a long workweek) brunch rendition of Make Pizza Drink Wine, aptly entitled 'Make Pizza Drink Bubbly', teaching attendees exactly how he does what he does so well: neo-Neapolitan pies, but this time, with a good ol' fashioned brunch twist on 'em.

Before getting schooled by Ayoub’s masterful culinary skills and creative talents, you’ll get to enjoy shared appetizers of Italian chickpeas with house-made focaccia bread and wood-fired crostini topped with ricotta and honey. Then, you’ll get to choose between making your very own prosciutto & egg (with optional mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, and mozzarella cheese toppings) or spinach & egg (with optional goat cheese, fontina, mascarpone, and white truffle oil toppings) Neapolitan pie, quintessential brunch-style.

*Please note: If your group is 10 people or more (birthday parties & corporate/team-building events are welcome!), please contact info@spoilednyc.com to discuss setting up a private event.*

Want to feel extra good about enjoying your time out making pizza and drinking wine? We have proudly partnered with Slice Out Hunger, which supports local hunger relief organizations through the American pizza community, and donate 5% from all ticket sales to their efforts. Sweet!

Finally, last but definitely not least, a self-serving of homemade tiramisu sends everyone home happy-- and just wee bit tipsy (the latter, of course, is compliments of the bottomless prosecco and Bellinis that are served throughout the two-hour experience).

We know, we know, we had you at bottomless, amirite?

Take a look at some pretty amazing Instagram Stories from our previous 'Make Pizza Drink Wine' events at Kesté Fulton right HERE. Enjoy 'em-- and we'll see you for a fun-filled afternoon of pizza and bubbly very soon!
