Barbershop Pop Up and Antica Pizzeria

I just read a blurb about the Barbershop Pop Up involving Mario Vollero, pizzaiolo of the late Antica Pizzeria. Barbershop will pop up at the old AOC location and will be serving its Italian style izakaya, but also serve that famous Neapolitan pizza at the bar. Apparently Barbershop hopes to open up permanently in the Venice area. It will run Feb 27 thru the month of March.

  1. I'm so confused by this "concept".

    Today, they tweeted their menu, and Mori-san is on the bill of fare?

      I saw pictures from a blogsite, which I somehow cannot find now, and dang if the dishes looked more like a Japanese Izakaya than Italian. Lots of seafood and no pastas. It doesn't surprise me that Mori might be involved.

        Mori-san cooked there for one evening, this past Wednesday.

          Damn. Sorry I missed it.

          Though the menu also made no sense to me, I would have gone just to support Mori-san.
