Jonathan Eismann Resurfaces with Spartico
|Eismann goes from Pacific Time to Pizza Man|
Spartico, a casual Roman trattoria (yes, this does make Spartico a strange choice for the eatery's name since Spartacus was the leader of a major slave uprising against the Roman Republic), has his stamp on the menu. Offered along with classic Italian dishes, sandwiches, salads, appetizers and desserts will be dozens of Roman-style pizzas. The pies will be made with a blend of flours and will feature toppings like chorizo, tomino cheese, speck, and proscuitto di Parma. These thin-crusted crispy babies, hopefully as tasty as the ones from Pizza Volante, will be cooked in an Ambrogi wood-burning oven from Milan. (That's close enough to Rome, right?)
As you may or may not know, Obadon Hotels got Daniel Boulud into its Brazilian Court and Michelle Bernstein at The Omphoy, so Eismann's in good company. Let's hope this gig sticks.
