We’ve been looking forward to the opening of Elizabeth Falkner and Nancy Puglisi’s Krescendo, and it appears the restaurant, at 364 Atlantic Avenue, is now open for business. “It’s not R2D2 and C3PO,” Falkner tweeted a first look at her pizza oven and oil can last week. “It’s Acunto & Oliera at Krescendo.” When Sandy delayed the restaurant’s opening last week, the chef, who decamped from San Francisco earlier this year, made sandwiches for Red Hook evacuees. Early reports suggest the two-day-old restaurant is already busy, and the kitchen even ran out of dough last night by 8:30. [Earlier]
