What to Eat at Kesté, Aiming to Open Next Week

By and

Its looking like Kest, the Bleecker Street pizzeria run by Roberto Caporuscio, the American-chapter president of the Associazone Pizzaiouli Napoletana, might open next Monday (instead of this weekend, as reported this week in the magazine). But heres a first glimpse at the menu to tide you over until then. Not surprisingly, theres no ham-and-pineapple pizza here, but there is a relatively outr number topped with butternut-squash cream, smoked mozzarella, and artichokes (a variation on the pie served to the Pope during the 2000 Jubilee), not to mention Caporuscios wifes recipe for tiramisu.
