Motorino is the world-famous New York pizzeria that is ‘stalked by fame’ and renowned as ‘the best pizza in New York’. Loved by celebrities, foodies and savvy locals, the iconic urban venue has since expanded to 9 locations worldwide, from Hong Kong to Singapore, and now finally to Dubai, at JA Ocean View Hotel on The Walk, Jumeirah Beach Residence. The 120-seat pizzeria is a fully licenced social spot that invites diners to ponder the moreish mysteries of artisanal pizza-pie perfection.
No one is quite sure what makes Motorino’s Neapolitan pizza so delicious though many have tried to define it. It seems to be some elusive equation of the freshest Italian ingredients, a dough that has a traditional 2-day rising process to produce a bubbly, yet crispy crust and an authentic Neapolitan preparation style and flair. Perhaps the secret lies in the details -fresh buffalo mozzarella imported from Italy or even the correct positioning of the pizza in the brick oven. It could even be down to its founder Mathieu Palombino’s unusual assertions about pizza preferences.
