Appetito & Flavors of NY at Cremini’s in Brooklyn

The owners of Cremini's

Elena Salati and Riccardo Massetti, the wife-and-husband team behind Cremini’s in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.

This past week, Appetito launched a video series with Flavors of NY, a documentary collection of over 700 films that features small businesses in NYC, and beyond, with an emphasis on food.

Here, our Editor-in-Chief, Andrew Cotto, goes to one of his favorite Brooklyn restaurants, Cremini's Aperitivo & Kitchen, in Carroll Gardens to speak with the owners, Elena Salati Massetti, and her husband/partner, Riccardo Massetti, about their regional cuisine from Italy’s Le Marche region (where “Cremini” is not a mushroom).

They also discuss the unique scenario faced with their grand opening on the dawn of pandemic, and how those challenges forged a bond with their adopted neighborhood in New York City.

Take a look and pay a visit to Cremini's for exquisite regional cooking and a damn fine hamburger.
