You'll have the chance to sample some of New York's best pizza, without forking out a cent for plane fares, when Brooklyn institution Di Fara Pizza pops up in Melbourne this month.
Heading Down Under as part of Melbourne Food and Wine Festival's 'MEL&NYC' series — which coincides with the NGV's MoMa exhibition — the famed pizzeria has over 50 years under its belt. Still headed up by the original owner, Italian-born Domenico De Marco who opened the pizza joint back in 65, and his family. Daughter Maggie will be taking the reins for the one-off lunch on Sunday, July 29, recreating the Di Fara experience at West Footscray's own neighbourhood haunt, Harley & Rose.
Local pizza chefs Josh Murphy and Rory Cowcher will join her in the kitchen to whip up an exclusive feast of snacks, salads, desserts, and of course, those perfectly blistered New York-style pizza slices.
Tickets to the Di Fara Sunday lunch will set you back $73, with five sittings available.
And, if you prefer a more casual sort of pizza feast, try your luck popping into Harley & Rose on Friday, July 27 from 4.30pm or on Saturday, July 28 from 11.30am — those iconic Di Fara slices will be available to go or to eat in.
