Time Out Market's Food Hall in DUMBO- a one stop shop replete with delicious food, exciting events, and a picturesque rooftop bar. One of our favorite Italian restaurants, Fornino, has a spot on the market’s roof. Fornino was founded in 2004 by Chef Michael Ayoub. Its humble beginnings in Williamsburg, Brooklyn have been credited with igniting the artisanal pizza craze in New York City. Creativity, sustainability and the science of fermentation are at the forefront of Chef Ayoub’s pizza making process, which sets Fornino apart. Fornino’s menu provides a historical approach to pizza with First Generation - Neapolitan, Second Generation - Regional Italian and Third Generation - Original Fornino varieties made in a wood-burning oven. Fornino has three Brooklyn locations including its flagship in Greenpoint (849 Manhattan Ave.), a seasonal location at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 and a permanent place at Time Out Market New York (55 Water Street). Time Out’s newest addition is, Kamasu, Kissaki Hospitality Group’s approachable and welcoming take on sushi, featuring "sets" of open faced, Temaki hand rolls and an a la carte menu of maki, specialty futomaki and donburi.
