Turns out my favorite Brooklyn pizza joint Lucali got a visit from Jay-Zed and Beyonce this month. The New Yorker reported that owner Mark Iacono was a bit flustered and apologized to those who had to wait even longer than usual for a table: "They didn't even tell me they were coming! Usually they tell me first."
Except -- whoops -- it turns out Iacono was hustling a table of three women out the door 30 minutes before Brooklyn's royalty showed up and -- double whoops -- one of them was a food blogger:
"His whole bit about how he didn't know they were coming was extremely annoying, because actually he kicked us out so they could have our table, right next to him," Jane McGivney said.
Of course, you can't swing a dead cat these days in Brooklyn without hitting a food blogger, so celeb-fucking restaurant owners beware!
Controversy aside, Lucali's pizza is really, really, really effin good. Check out the picture I took:
