Brigantessa Finally Gets Its Wood-Fired Oven

New, 1 comment

Their Gianni Acunto oven has dodged potential piracy and cleared customs.

Brigantessa, opening soon on East Passyunk, finally has the oven that forms the very core of the restaurant's concept. That's only after being crafted in Italy, taking a long trip over on a boat, and sitting in customs for a spell. But maybe we should be relieved it got here at all — when we randomly bumped into chef Joe Cicala (pictured) a while back at Cheu, he told us that they had to buy pirate insurance for the oven's sea journey.
