Native New Yorker Steve Levine has eaten pizza all his life, at big family dinners and on front porch hangs. While selling t –shirts outside rock concerts and agonizing over baseball results. It has sustained him during long culinary school hours and nightly subway rides home. He has shared pizza with his Irish girlfriend and his kitchen crew in some of New York’s finest restaurants. Perfecting the pizza pie became a weekly tradition. So when his young family decided to move to Dublin, maintaining this tradition became a necessity. And so, Brownstone Pizza was born and the dough was started. 5 years later, in his new city, making pizza is still a weekly tradition. His pizza evokes all the memories and flavors of his hometown and invites you to be a part of it.
