22 Feb Roman street food hits the streets of lower Manhattan
The first US location of Stefano Callegari’s popular Roman street food concept, Trapizzino, opens today in the Lower East Side.
The eponymous trapizzino is essentially a hand-held pizza pocket, filled with traditional Roman main courses (secondi) that are generally absent from the average Italian fast casual menu. Think oxtail, beef shoulder, stracchiatella, or eggplant parmesan wrapped in a miniature pizza Bianca and paired with a signature rice ball for good measure.
Local partners, Nick Hatsatouris and Luca Vicenzini, have been working with Callegari for several months to ensure that New Yorkers are treated to the same high-quality ingredients and preparation techniques that have put Trapizzino on the map back in Rome. Doors open at 11am today. 144 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10002.
