Update: Seamus will be popping on Tuesday, May 14! Expect some Gluten free options on this menu, perhaps even a recipe for a gluten free pizza or flatbread. We’re super curious and excited for this one!
Harry’s has got it goin’ on! Long overdue for some love on the blog, our little pizzeria that could is getting noticed nationally for its pies and turning out some killer new food and drink outside of the pizza box, both on its regular menu and at Sunday’s new brunch. Here’s what you need to know:
Ay, que rico! With April Bloomfield’s sold out dinner next week, our eyes turn to March’s event with Bill Telepan, and the rest of the season of chef pop-ups that Michael has so expertly lined-up. New to the list as of this week? Seamus Mullen, New York chef and owner of Tertulia, will channel northern spain at Harry’s this season. We’re working on hammering down the month for his event and are really excited about this one. Also, Joey Campanaro and Mikey Price’s Quality Clam Pizzeria date is now set for Tuesday, April 23. Boom!
New on Harry’s menu this week in the beverage department are Victory Brewery (PA) Golden Monkey Tripel (respect the monkey!,) Cigar City (FL) Hotter than Helles Lager which I am particularly loving for its grassy hue and crispy, toasty finish, as well as a vintage change (2011) on the Coppola Votre Santé Pinot Noir (CA.) The Genuine Hospitality Group Wine Director Eric Larkee would, however, have you chart a course first to the whites, specifically a Pinot Bianco blend which isn’t new new, but very delicious delicious: “The Vallarom. It’s a super fresh blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Riesling from Northeast Italy near the Dolomite mountains.”
You can put this in print! One of our favorite things about Harry’s menu is that some of the best stuff happens on its chalkboard… These daily specials blaze in with a fury, emblazoned on the restaurant’s Tumblr and Instagram, and then poof they are gone in a flash! So when printed changes happen every now and again, it’s almost a welcomed relief, like the new salad hitting today: Florida Starfruit and Cucumber with arugula, crunchy poblano pepper, and pistachios, all tossed in a bright and savory apple cider vinaigrette with shaved manchego cheese on top. It reads a little out in left field, but trust me… you might have a new favorite salad to enjoy, say, with the Vallarom! Sous Chef Steve Martin, fresh from Michael’s Genuine down the street and an inspirational stage with past pop-up chef Jonathon Sawyer, is also helping our casual neighborhood joint kitchen and its front-of-house staff get educated on our local farms and how salads like this one come to be so fresh and seasonal. Now that’s something worth toasting! TGIF.
