Eggplant Pizzettes, Dom DeMarco’s

You heard that the president approved of the pepperoni pies here, but there’s more to the menu than that. This starter dish is not the eggplant parmigiana of your standard red-sauce joint. Three meaty rounds of aubergine are breaded and fried to a golden crisp on the outside, but remain creamy within. Each is topped with “gravy,” a dollop of whipped ricotta and fresh basil. Sure, the portion is on the smallish side, but this leaves more room for the pizza.

Filled With the Spirit

Celebrity-endorsed spirits mean big business to the beverage industry: Fergie and Pitbull for Voli vodka, Swedish House Mafia’s recent collaboration with Absolut, and Matisyahu for L’Chaim Kosher vodka, just to name a few. But some stars of rock, pop and country are going well beyond simply selling clout by the case to actually owning a piece of the action. Cîroc? Diddy. Mansinthe? Marilyn Manson. Crystal Head? Dan Aykroyd. There’s also Ron Jeremy’s Ron de Jeremy, Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl line … You get the picture.
