312 Bowery – From November 13, 2015 to December 31, 2015
Pop-up shops offer the opportunity to experiment with uncommon and creative store concepts. For a few weeks, the Bowery features a shopping window with the most successful Kickstarter products that are designed to work with Apple products. The idea of having Kickstarter-themed store is interesting and it could be expanded also outside the Apple ecosystem. By the way: I have no clue on whether and how the levitating light bulb featured in the picture could be used with an iPhone or a Mac.

When the MoMA will open a pizza art gallery, the curator will probably include Forcella as a leading example of the new wave of Neapolitan style pizza in New York.
The name of the restaurant comes from an iconic neighborhood in Naples, and the pizza experience at Forcella is true to its Italian roots. The pizza is impeccable, the ingredients are of excellent quality, the spicy olive oil is available on request, and the waiters always try to sell you more expensive beverages.
It is impossible to resist to the “Pizzella”, a tiny piece of pizza dough quickly fried and then baked with a simple topping of tomato and cheese. This is an absolute must, especially if you are not going to order the “Montanara”, the deep fried whole pizza.
The “Margherita Extra” is pure art and passion. The crust is thick, light and fluffy. The toppings are perfectly blended together creating a continuum of flavors, from the acid-sweetness of the tomato to the decadent, sinful opulence of the melted cheese. A masterpiece on a plate.
