Will Pulino’s Live Up to the Hype? We issue a challenge

Posted on: November 19th, 2009 at 6:37 am by

Since our interior progress report on Pulino’s Bar and Pizzeria back in August, we’ve seen lots of people coming to Bowery Boogie looking for details. That whole Iron Chef show with Nate Appleman didn’t hurt, but we think it’s safe to say that there’s astronomical interest in this joint. Our question is, will Pulino’s really be worth all this hype?

We’d like to make Keith McNally and Nate Appleman an offer: give our readers a chance to decide. Donate a meal for two and we’ll have a sweepstakes. The lucky winner and a guest will partake in your new menu.  In exchange, this lucky reader will write a short review to be published on the site.

You may ask “why should we do this”? Here’s our reasoning:

  • A meal for two is pretty cheap publicity.
  • Do a search for Pulino’s on Google. We’ll probably show up in the top 3 results. People are coming to Bowery Boogie to learn about your restaurant.
  • Yes, we know you’re very secretive about everything. It’s been a challenge for us, but we haven’t resorted to standing outside your building waiting for appliances to arrive (it was a brilliant idea by the way. Much respect to Eater).
  • Basically, we’ve been waiting to get in the door and try the food for months. At least give our readers an early preview.

So let’s sum this up. Owners of Pulino’s: we are issuing you a friendly challenge. Donate a meal for 2 and let our readers write a short review for us. Thoughts?
