DAY 20: OCTOBER 20th, 2022
LOCATION: Fumo Harlem (1600 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10031)
GUEST(S): Lauren Stripling, Everly Brodie, Matt Koff
ORDER: 2 slices of Margherita (fresh mozzarella, basil, tomato, olive oil), 2 slices of Funghi (wild mushrooms, red onion, parmigiano, mozzarella, arugula), 1 slice of Parma (prosciutto, arugula, parmigiano, fontina, truffle oil), 1 slice of Vodka (pink sauce, fresh mozzarella, scallions)
FOMO without Fumo. Patrons can’t get enough of Fumo's pizzas, pastas and trendy vibe. Residents have embraced the original Harlem establishment so much that it has already expanded to a second location in the Upper West Side. Not only does the romantically lit dining area and hip cocktail menu make FUMO an ideal date location but the wood-fired brick-oven Napoletana style pizza will work out even if the date does not. Let the light from the wood oven welcome you in then enjoy at taste of Italy. The menu includes more than pizza but I recommend at least ordering one of the signature pies and pairing it with a signature cocktail. A Fumo night is a good night.

1. Everly Brodie loves Montreal bagels which I didn't know existed.
2. Get Lauren Stripling on your pub quiz team and you have yourself a ringer. She's been on Jeopardy! and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and did quite well in both!
3. Matt Koff is a hilarious stand up comic. We reminisced about the day we met on Day 19 of Pizza Month 2005 at MichaelAngelo's II in Astoria, Queens.
4. Everly and Lauren are going to pizza school this weekend!
