On Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights, pizza makers sip on a three-flight wine tasting with a sommelier as they craft an individual artisan pie to nosh on when finished. Pizzas are made with pre-rolled dough, and finished pies are baked by Brick NYC's chefs while guests sample three two-ounce wine pours.
On Sundays, 90-minute cheese classes go over how to make mozzarella cheese from fresh mozzarella curd while munching on an antipasto plate and enjoying a bottle of imported Italian wine, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, and Chardonnay.
“My love of cooking started in childhood making raviolis with my mother and grandmother,” Brick NYC's executive chef Warren Schierenbeck told Food Network in his finalist interview for the Chopped competition. The man behind Brick NYC's authentic Italian cuisine, Schierenbeck applies his childhood experiences when preparing large portions of colorful, handcrafted pastas, artisan bread, and cured meats. At wine-tasting and pizza-making events, Schierenbeck's team of convivial foodsmiths shares its culinary know-how, elucidating the olfactory properties of Italian and American varietals and teaching basic math by slicing pizzas into fractions. The restaurant's airy, rustic dining hall sets the stage for both dining and learning, surrounding patrons in brick walls draped with orange curtains.
