Di Fara, the legendary New York pizzeria, and number two on The Daily Meal’s recent list of the 101 best pizzas in America, is arguably one of the most iconic places to taste an authentic New York City pie.Soon, while you’re waiting for your steaming-hot pizza in a line that sometimes wraps down the block, you’ll also be able to grab a cannoli while you stave off hunger pangs. Di Fara is opening a spinoff—Di Fara Dolce Fatts—just around the corner.
Dolce Fatts will be a dessert shop and café, according to the New York Times. Some of the bakery items will be made in-house like their classic cannoli (of course, how could you not make your own if you’re going to be legit) while some menu items will come from local bakeries. Di Fara Dolce Fatts will also serve as a waiting area for the original Di Fara pizzeria.
Di Fara’s owner Domenico DeMarco has been honing his cheesy craft in the same spot for more than 50 years, but will be equally successful with sweets? No word yet on when exactly the bakery will open but the exact address, in case you want to keep an eye out, is 1012 East 15th Street in Midwood, Brooklyn.
