Former S.F. chef, Next Iron Chef finalist, and Top Chef Masters alum Elizabeth Falkner, who does not want tobe known only as a pastry chef, is getting set to open her first New York restaurant on November 1. It’s called Krescendo, and it’s a pizzeria in the Boerum Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, and she’s partnered with Brooklyn native and Tony’s Pizza Napoletana partner Nancy Puglisi. The place features two pizza ovens, Southern Italian pastas and desserts, and cocktails by former Bourbon & Branch bartender Darren Crawford. Check out the slideshow from our compadres in New York.
