Located on 5th avenue, between 1st and 2nd street, there’s a new restaurant in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Tutt’Appost opened its doors on April 9. The Italian phrase, pronounced “toot-ah-post,” translates to “it’s all good."
The space at 289 5th avenue was last occupied by Gristmill, a farm-to-table restaurant that shuttered in April 2019.
Tutt'Appost told me that the owners, Jerald Gralto, Andrew Puca, and Manuel Gregorio, have been friends for years and decided to open up an authentic Neapolitan/Italian style restaurant in Brooklyn using fresh authentic products.
Tutt’Appost is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. during the week, and noon to 10 p.m. on the weekends. They offer Neapolitan-style wood-fired pizza and other Italian dishes, including classic desserts like tiramisu and profiterole.
The pizza prices range from $12 (pizza rosse, classic marina) to $20 (pizze bianche with truffle pate and porcini mushrooms). The rest of the menu falls within a similar range, skirt steak being the priciest item at $25.
Less than two weeks after the grand opening, diners are raving about Tutt’Appost online. The food and drinks are receiving high praise, as well as the atmosphere.
When I walked by the new restaurant yesterday, they were just beginning to open, and I saw the Tutt’Appost team setting up the backyard patio. Here’s a beautiful shot from their Instagram page:
I’m looking forward to trying one of their Neapolitan pies, hopefully soon, hopefully in that gorgeous garden out back.
Like many restaurants in Park Slope and across New York City, Tutt’Appost is currently hiring. They are looking for workers with 6 to 12 months experience, in the following positions: chef, pizzaiolo, server, kitchen prep, bartender.
