Elizabeth Falkner Tweets a First Look at Her New Brooklyn Pizza Restaurant [Updated]
Just yesterday we noticed that the amazingly talented chef and television star Elizabeth Falkner will present at the upcoming StarChefs annual congress, and we wondered when we'd hear anything new about that new pizza restaurant in the works. And, lo! Today, Falkner tweeted an Instagram photo of a forklift lifting what looks like a very heavy piece of kitchen equipment through the front window of the new space, with the words "1st day I many just building a restaurant in Brooklyn, NY." Game on. The unnamed project, which the chef is opening with bartender Darren Crawford and Nancy Puglisi from San Francisco's Tony's Pizza Napoletana, is said to be either in Park Slope or Boerum Hill and will open this fall.

Update: Grub Street can confirm that the location is 364 Atlantic Avenue, in the former Downtown Atlantic space.
