L’asso Hires Chef Daniel Riviera to Expand Menu

L’asso Hires Chef Daniel Riviera to Expand Menu

Not content with merely being named the best pizza in Lower Manhattan by the 5 Boro Pizza Tour, L’asso has installed a head chef, Daniel Riviera, in its basement kitchen with the aim of introducing a menu that goes beyond pies and pasta. Riviera — who is Puerto Rican — has been bumping around kitchens in New York and New Jersey since graduating from the New York Art Institute with a degree in culinary arts. A month into his tenure, he’s added one dish to the dinner menu: a skirt steak marinated in primitivo, then grilled and topped with a chimichurri sauce. For $15, it’s served with an arugula salad of shaved Parmesan and aged balsamic. By December, there’ll be five more entrées, including a fish dish and a linguine with littleneck clams, as well as an expanded brunch menu. L’asso isn’t really hurting for customers, but this should help it hold its own against a trio of ambitious newcomers in its immediate vicinity — the Mott, Civetta, and Travertine.

He met his wife Clariza, fell in love and ate a lot of slices. Nohli, their little baby, is the product of pure pizza love. She is one of the L’asso Test Babies; eating the pizza while still in the womb and devouring any slice the comes near here ever since.

Zuccini Blossom Pizza

Rob is stealing blossoms from his mother’s house and putting them on pizza.  Check our twitter and we’ll send an update when Rob bring’s them in.  They go right away and we only have enough fresh ones for about 2-3 pies a week.  Right now we’re making it with fresh mozzarella, Gorgonzola,provolone, fresh shaved parmesean, zucchini, zucchini flowers and olive oil.  MAN. My great uncle Pete used to get fresh blossoms from the farmers market, deep fry them and eat em with blue cheese. He was maverick in his field.

We now have Meatballs up and going:
After 5 years Rob’s mom, through a sacred ceremony including chanting and proclamations of secrecy, passed onto him her recipe for meatballs. They are delicious and should be ingested in the near future. Get’ em on pizza, pasta,  by themselves or on a sandwhich.

$8 for a meatball sandwich for lunch. Three meatballs on a Sulliven St. Bakery Panino Roll, L’asso Tomato Sauce and regular mozzarella.  Obie likes it with pickels.  fyi:we  have pickles.
