East Village pizza haven, GG’s has Staten Island roots. Their executive chef, Bobby Hellen, brought the Zagat culinary experts back to his hometown of Staten Island to show how famed Staten Island pizzerias Denino’s and Joe & Pats inspired the menu at GG’s.
Before becoming the executive chef at at GG’s, Hellen worked for Jean Georges Management opening V Steakhouse New York City, The Ritz-Carlton Naples in Florida, and L’Auberge Carmel in California before heading back to his back to his hometown to open Resto.
Check out the video, which was released back in March:
