Starr Wooing NYC Pizza Talent

From New York’s Eater, we get the clearest idea yet as to what Stephen Starr is looking for in Stella Pizza. The blog reports that Stephen Starr and company were wooing Lucali chef and owner Mark Iacono to consult for Starr’s Philadelphia pizza project. It was evidently an offer Iacono could refuse, though he did receive the fine parting prize of Starr gift certificates!

    I wonder if the great Stephen Starr realizes the copyright infringement of naming it Stella Pizza while theres one right over the bridge in Collingswood

  • Andre

    you want to go to naples for the real thing, why bother bringing someone from ny? does collingswood have a patent on the italian language?

  • Barry G

    You are very confused.

    Excuse me Barry and Andre if you check out todays GrubStreet they have an article about how Stephen is no longer calling it Stella pizza due to the name already being taken. No apologies necessary gentlemen.
