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.

L’asso in Daily News as “Best Pizza in Manhattan”

“Sure the wait staff is of the hipster genus, but who’s to fault them on appearance? When the sweat of the tomatoes and cheese hits you, it is second to none. The crust is tops as well. The owner is a stickler for perfection and L’Asso reaches it as close as any pizzeria can. These pies are in the Ultimate top-tier of pizzas in NYC.” -Jeffrey Tastes
