MNPC: San Marzano

It's tough to call tonight a true MNPC, with only 3 members attending dinner, plus it's a place that we've been before. But tonight was MNPC and we went to San Marzano on the Lower East Side, and only 3 member for good reason which I'll get to. 

We had been to San Marzano before with pizza club and it was really good so when LGFEO's band, Leslie Paris Viking, was playing at Arlene's Grocery, it was a great fit and only a few blocks away. The pictures on San Marzano's site look amazing and and I have to say that the food does come out looking just as good in person.

The pizza has a great crust, the right amount of char, and great toppings. If you're on the LES, and looking for pizza, definitely give this one a try. Tonight we had the: 

Pesto Chicken Calzone
fresh mozzarella, pesto chicken breast

sausage, broccoli rabe, garlic, chili flakes, pecorino,
fresh mozzarella, tomato sauce
fontina, goat cheese, caramelized onions, shitake and
button mushrooms, roasted garlic, thyme, white truffle
After a delicious dinner, it was off to Arlene's Grocery. I have seen several bands play here and it's the perfect venue for new and up and coming bands. I was lucky that tonight, it was one of my friends. The place wasn't crowded and the band was great. If you get the chance, I highly recommend them, Leslie Paris Viking. They are worth a listen.
