OVEN TAKEOVER "Di Farra Pizzaria" BROOKLYN, NY

  • Harley and Rose 572 Barkly Street West Footscray, VIC, 3012 Australia (map)

THIS JULY, WE'RE EXCITED TO WELCOME THE TEAM FROM LEGENDARY BROOKLYN PIZZARIA, DI FARA, TO TAKE OVER OUR OVEN


FIRST, A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THEM;

"DOMENICO DE MARCO, OR "DOM", OPENED DI FARA PIZZA IN 1964 AFTER EMIGRATING TO BROOKLYN FROM THE PROVINCE OF CASERTA IN ITALY. BEFORE DI FARA PIZZA, DOM SPENT TIME WORKING ON A HUNTINGTON FARM UNTIL SOMEONE TOLD HIM ABOUT A "GOOD SPOT" ON AVENUE J IN BROOKLYN. THAT "GOOD SPOT" IS NOW KNOWN AS THE BEST PIZZERIA IN NEW YORK CITY.

EACH PIE OF PIZZA IS HAND CRAFTED BY THE MASTER HIMSELF, DOM SPENT OVER 40 YEARS PERFECTING HIS PIZZA. WITH SEVERAL OF HIS CHILDREN SUPPORTING HIM IN THE KITCHEN, THIS LEGEND COOKS UP TO 150 PIES EVERY DAY.  MANY OF THE INGREDIENTS ARE IMPORTED FROM ITALY TO FORM A TASTE THAT CAN'T BE REPLICATED. IN THE HIS PIPING HOT RETRO OVEN, DOM HAS EACH MOUTHWATERING PIE READY TO BE DEVOURED IN JUST MINUTES."


SO WE THOUGHT, WHY NOT BRING ONE OF BROOKLYN'S BEST PIZZAS TO WEST FOOTSCRAY! DI FARA IS PROUDLY FAMILY OWNED AND RUN. DOM'S DAUGHTER - MAGGIE - WILL BE MAKING THE TRIP OUT TO MELBOURNE TO RECREATE THE DI FARA EXPERIENCE 

ON THE 27TH AND 28TH OF JULY, THE RENOWNED DI FARA PIZZERIA OF BROOKLYN NY WILL BE TAKING OVER THE PIZZA OVEN AT HARLEY & ROSE!                                THE REST OF OUR MENU WILL BE AVAILABLE AS PER USUAL, WITH THE PIZZA OFFERING EXCLUSIVELY THAT OF THE ILLUSTRIOUS DI FARA TEAM. CAPACITY IS LIMITED, BUT YOU CAN STILL WALK-IN OR GRAB A SLICE TO GO! BOOK NOW TO AVOID MISSING OUT ON THIS ICON'S MAIDEN VOYAGE TO MELBOURNE. 

TO FINISH OUT THEIR WEEKEND WITH US, WE WILL BE RUNNING AN EXCLUSIVE TICKETED EVENT ON SUNDAY THE 29TH FOR A LAVISH BANQUETTE STYLE LUNCH. MAGGIE WILL COLLABORATE WITH OUR CHEFS, JOSH AND RORY, HERE AT OUR HUMBLE NEIGHBOURHOOD HANGOUT THAT, LIKE DI FARA, KEEPS BOTH LOCAL FAMILIES & SERIOUS FOODIES HAPPY.

YOUR DI FARA EXPERIENCE INCLUDES THREE SNACKS, SALADS, DESSERT & NEW YORK STYLE PIZZA SLICES...WITHOUT THE SIDEWALK LINE UP.
