We had torrential rain in NYC today, forcing us to forgo several shoots. Fortunately, we caught up with my good friend Alberto Gonzales at his Village-based restaurant, GustOrganics. He treated all of us to pizza and smoothies, and Dylan got to stand by while his porteno was prepared (see pic). GustOrganics is the first USDA certified organic restaurant in New York City. If this is the future, I'm grabbing a fork.

The crew and I spent all day yesterday in Brooklyn and Queens shooting the first episodes our upcoming TV series for NYC Life. One of our best finds during our journey through the boroughs was Roberta's Pizzeria, a remarkable "farm-to-table" enterprise in Bushwick. The staff was friendly, the music retro, the energy relaxed, and the pizza could not have been better. Stop by on a nice day and check out the back patio and garden. You'll feel like you're on vacation.
Here's a pic of Israel and Dylan sitting down for a slice with Roberta's head pizza chef, who taught us all how to toss a pie. Keep your eye out for the episode in September.
