Nancy Silverton is honored to welcome Franco Pepe to the corner of Highland and Melrose on November 19th and 20th
Widely regarded as the best pizzaiolo in Italy, Franco Pepe is one of the foremost experts on pizza making. At Pepe in Grani, his restaurant outside of Naples, every dough is kneaded by hand, every ingredient is sourced within 12 kilometers of the restaurant, and every effort is made to ensure that all components come together to form perfect bite.
As Jonathan Gold wrote, “this might be the best pizza in the world.”
